Barry’s Hair Studio nail it with the chip free weekly polish!

Admit it, we all want perfectly manicured nails that are chip free, easy to achieve and affordable to maintain. And ‘The Beauty Rooms’ @ Barry’s Hair Studio has just the solution at your fingertips with the new CND Vinylux Weekly Polish, solar-powered seven day manicure.

As the newest edition to the treatment menu at the award winning salon, the CND Vinylux Weekly Polish works using a colour and top coat in tandem, giving a polish that lasts for up to one week chip-free. No base coat is required, saving valuable time and say goodbye to smudges as it dries in just a few minutes. Unlike gel or shellac nails no UV lights are required for the CND Vinylux Weekly Polish, in fact exposure to natural light ensures the varnish becomes more durable. The CND Vinylux File & Polish costs only €12 at Barry’s Hair Studio and is a must for the beauty loving ladies of Galway. The good news is when you fall in love with a colour you can purchase the Polish & Top Coat set, giving you the salon look at home from only €18.

Available in a range of vibrant colours, the CND Vinylux weekly polish removes easily with a swipe of acetone-based nail polish remover, just like a normal nail varnish.
