Hello lovelies,

 

You might have noticed that I haven't posted yesterday. That's because I wanted all of you to read my previous post Re: MissJenFabulous aka The Nail Art Thief post. It's an important issue that is shaking the nail community and you, readers need to know who you're following.

 

On the other hand, today's post is quite cheery I would say. I wanted to create a skittle manicure that would be kind of a tribute to the beautiful skittle manicures that Sammy aka The Nailasaurus does. Sammy had an amazing year (rightfully) and she is a great inspiration! I also had the privilege to meet her in person and she's a very lovely person.

 

I have done a skittle manicure combining her Nimbus design, polka dot, glitter, studded and stamped nail. Of course the manicure would look so much better on Sammy's short nails but eh, what can I do?

For this manicure I have used Barry M Crush (reviewed here) as a base colour, MoYou Festive Collection 03 stamping plate and OPI Alpine Snow for polka dots. I've also used A England Excalibur in the Nimbus design. The glitter nail is OPI Crown Me Already! and the triangle stud is from Born Pretty Store. You can use 10% discount LUHH10 on your whole order when you shop there.

 

Well I hope you liked it and I hope Sammy will too, she doesn't know I'm doing this post ;)

 

Love, Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

I've got another British polish review for you! Today it's Barry M Crush, a dark red matte from the Autumn Matte collection. The whole Matte collection consists of 5 shades and I have already shown you swatches of Barry M Caramel and Vanilla.

 

Crush is matte but slightly leaning towards satin finish; I was expecting a proper matte I must admit. Nevertheless it's a pretty shade and you can still play with the matte/glossy effect.

The formula was very well pigmented so all I needed were two thin coats. It dried fast and the application was smooth and streak-free. I would still advice you to work fast to avoid any patching even though I haven't experienced any. Because this polish is not worn with topcoat, leave it to dry and harden for longer than usual to avoid dents.

 

Barry M polishes are available at every Superdrug and Boots stores and at the official Barry M website.
