The next-gen mani

Love the staying power of a gel mani but hate the hassle of a salon visit to remove it? Cue Barry M’s Sunset Nail Paints. Pick from nine super-shiny shades before you apply the hard-as-nails topcoat (sold separately). The paint sets to a gel-like finish in daylight, so it’s easy to remove with your everyday nail polish remover.

Its genius colour-control dial means you can adjust the level of brassy-busting violet pigment you infuse into the treatment for an instant colour boost.
