Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint "Papaya"

These have become a cult favorite on YouTube recently, especially in those from the UK. Barry M in general have become a very prominent brand, especially in their nail paints. I believe they're fairly inexpensive and are pretty widely available in their drugstore Superdrug.
The hype about these, I think, was in the formula. They have a slightly thicker consistency and dry down to a very glossy finish like a gel nail polish.
Here I have on Papaya, which is a bright orange toned coral. I don't typically love this shade of color on me, but I ended up actually like this on me! It is a perfect summery melon shade, and again, I'm surprised I liked this shade of orange on me. It may be because I haven't actually gotten that much color this summer. I think on other people, coral looks amazing, especially with a tan, but I just don't like it on me lol.
It definitely had a thicker formula, and was opaque in almost one coat. I did 2 for security. It was very glossy and lasted on my nails for a good 4 days with little to no wear before I layered a glitter on top (which you'll see soon).
I used Seche Vite as a top coat and OPI Nail Envy as a base coat.
A friend of mine actually brought this back for me from the UK so I can't actually tell you what their availability is like.
What do you guys think? Have any of you tried this line of polishes?
