The weather is getting warmer, and the sun in coming out more. So that must mean summer is close. 😉
Similar to my lychee NOTD post, this is another nail of the day, using the Barry M spring gelly nail paints, that I won. Today I used Papaya.
As you can see this colour is perfect for wearing in spring/summer. It has such a beach vibe to it IMO. The colour is a light, coral/peach. Not at all a harsh red orange. I think this colour will suit most, if not all skin tones.
Again, application is fab. As is all Barry M nails paints that I have used. The high shine formula really does work, and once dry the nails look shiny and glossy. So this saved me using my top coat. Although, you could use a clear topcoat on top as well, if you wanted to.
I think that Papaya is my favourite colour out of the spring gelly collection. Even just the sound of its name makes me think of fresh, yummy fruit and hot sunshine!
What do you think of the colours in Barry M’s spring gelly range? Which one is your favourite?
Today is a nail of the day post. Featuring one of the nail paints that I won from the barry M ‘flash your lashes’ comp, see what I won here 🙂
This is Lychee. One of Barry M’s new spring gelly nail paints. It is a natural, soft beige/nude colour.
I think that this colour can work on a variety of skin tones, and it’s a perfect colour to wear as is, or even layer glitter over, or use it as a base colour for nail art. Application is a dream, as to be exspected. It applies smoothly, and evenly. I would say it takes a little longer to dry/stays ‘squidgey’ for longer than the ‘normal’ nail paints. Though that is probably because of the formula, as it is the high shine, gellys. (I’ve never had/tried any until now).
Overall this colour is fabulous, and very different from anything i have in my collection so far. I have many pastel pinks, and taupe. But no actual nude based colours, so Lychee (what a yummy name too!) is a much welcomed addition. 😉
As some of you may have read a while ago, I bought some false oval shaped nails. So yesterday I decided to wear them and show you my NOTD. 🙂
And it’s no hidden secret that I ADORE Barry M nail paints… the colours I used were
Barry M “Bright purple”, and then their gorgeous pastel “Berry Ice cream” as an accent colour on just one nail. I really liked how it came out, and think the colours complement each other. I’m tempted to put gold glitter on them though, haha I think I love glitter too much 😛 shhhh!
I recently bought a new nail varnish, as I had £1 left on my superdrug gift card… I have to spend every last penny! haha 😉
So, what could I get for cheap? I went straight for the MUA, and had a browse through the lovely nail varnishes. I was torn between their –
After convincing myself I have far too many pastel like colours, I put frozen yoghurt back (as much as I love the name) and went for the lovely vampy “red fever”. I love red nails, and my estee lauder reds are very old, and not as good as they were. So this is a much welcomed addition! 😛
So here is my NOTD, in MUA’s “Red fever”.
I’m sorry about the distracting glare on the bottle, there was rubbish lighting, so the flash went off every time. Isn’t it a lovely colour? A vampy, dark red. This would look perfect for winter/autumn.
Let me know what you think? Which colour would of gone for and why?
This is my nail of the day, a deep red base coat with a moc croc effect over the top, to give the impression of cracked leather.
The red underneath, is nail inc. in “Piccadilly circus”. It’s a gorgeous deep almost burgundy red, really vampy and great colour for autumn/winter. It glides on the nails so smoothly and easily, and dried relatively quick, which is great for people like me, who have little patience for nails to dry. 😉
The moc croc is Barry M’s nail effects varnish, in black “croc effects”. I love love LOVE this varnish, I just love the look and texture that it gives, again as with all Barry M nail varnishes it applies easy, smooth and even…the effects varnishes dry really quickly, which is great. This croc is my favourite varnish in my collection, it also goes with ever colour imaginable as it is in black. 😀
Hey puddings! I wanted to try out some nail art…I call this one ”Gold bar”. I used Barry M’s ‘Berry Ice cream’, as the base colour over my whole nail, to make the tips. I then used Barry M ”Bright pink” and made a horizontal line at the bottom of my nails. And Finally, I used Barry M ”gold foil” and applied a horizontal bar across the centre of my nails, to create a gold bar effect 🙂
I still need to clean up the edges, but I’m happy with the outcome, and think it would look really cute for summer!
Just wanted to show my nail of the day. Barry M gold foil, as the base – with Barry M, yellow topaz glitter (from their jewel glitter collection) over the top. 🙂
(So hard to photograph) The tones of the glitter bits constantly change when they reflect the light. It looks green/blue in my photos all the time. In real life, the sparkles of glitter are gold!
This is a gorgeous glitter, and still looks just as lovely if you just do one coat, much more subtle, but still sparkly. I did two coats on my nails. 🙂 Really need to get the others in the collection (pictured below)
