I fancied doing something a little bit elegant and sparkly that I've seen on numerous nail blogs over the past few months. So with my brand new bottle of Blackberry Hi Jelly Shine from Barry M and an old glitter from NYC that I've never used before but seemed perfect, I did a simple glitter gradient by dabbing on the glitter with a make-up sponge. This method is truly idiot proof and I think looks so good. You may be seeing a few more of these from me as I get over my infatuation with them.
The Barry M polish is absolutely divine. It's coverage is so good that one coat is sufficient but they don't call me Two Coat Tilly for nothing. (Actually no-one calls me Two Coat Tilly, sadly). And so I put another coat on for good measure. It's a beautiful formulation and colour and I can't wait to try some more in the series. I do hope Barry M continue to bring new shades out in this line.
Please ignore the cuticles. A combination of spring cleaning and a dry cold winter means I can't keep my hands moisturised for love nor money.
What's your favourite idiot-proof manicure?
