With these Speedy Dry polishes Barry M have stepped it up a notch, and might have actually produced my favourite polishes of all time.

First off, the colour selection. I love the pastels (or 'muted neons' as Essie would say) and they are perfect for spring/summer.
The consistency. Barry M often has a very thick consistency. This means they are somewhat difficult to apply, as well as meaning that they dry on top and form a crust rather than drying all the way through (making it very easy to dent and chip). These Speedy Dry polishes are slightly looser, so whilst you might need a couple of layers to get the same colour hit, the overall effect is that they last so much longer.

It dries quickly. My biggest bug bear with Barry M polishes is that they take forever to dry. This polish does what it says on the tin. Although it's not a quick drying as other quick drying polishes (I'm thinking specifically of Rimmel's 60 Seconds collection), it only takes about 5 minutes, which is great for Barry M.
The wear. I've only had this polish on for 24 hours, but already I've noticed how much better it's lasting than other Barry M polishes I've tried. For me, I'm lucky if a Barry M polish lasts the night without chipping, so this is a huge improvement.
