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...!

  1. It is very nice and the inside fur lining is soft and warm. It is very cold in London, and my down coat is not warm enough, but this sheepskin jackets turns out to be a really great coat, warm, stylish and quality. Highly recommend it in www.cwmalls.com!
