Nails of the day: Spotty Barry M Mint Green and Peach Melba

As you will have seen from my previous Nails of the day posts, I don't usually go in for much nail art. However, inspired by nail blogger Fundamentally Flawless I thought I'd give it a whirl.

Nail art is difficult, so for my first attempt I found willing volunteer Victoria, who I supplied Rose to whilst decorating her nails. She picked Barry M Mint Green and Peach Melba from my polish collection and I teamed them up to give her spotty talons.

I applied a base coat in alternating shades and then popped a splodge of each colour onto some shiny paper (I used and old edition of Grazia) let the polish start to dry, then used a tooth pick to add the contrasting colour spots.

 I popped a top coat over a little too early, which caused some smudging, but I didn't think it was too bad for a first attempt! Victoria has requested stripes next time, so I better get practising...!
