NOTD - Nails Of The Days!

Yesterday I bought Heat Mag for the first time in ages and as I was flicking through I saw a page on white nails being on trend. This wasn't news to me but I think that finding alternative ways to wear white nails is somewhat tricky. However when I saw this design I was pretty keen to try it!

I used BarryM's Matte White and their Nail Art Pen in Black and for the flowers themselves I used a collection of reds and pinks - any will do really.

I don't really like this look on myself. I liked it (and still do!) on the nail in the magazine but on me it just looked like dots... I reckon it's got a lot to do with the fact that I file my nails into square tips so a gradient of roses couldn't be built up! It's a really easy yet effective design to try though and I hope that this post inspires you to try it out.

I fancied something long-lasting and girly for the next few days so this was an obvious combination. I went with the gradient glitter effect but with silver this time (ooh!), BarryM Diamond Glitter and I used my free Special Edition BarryM nail polish - which appears to be nameless although I've pictured it and it's like a really girly neon pink! As a base and top coat I used my nailsinc. Kensington Caviar duo.

I applied two coats of the pink and then I just built up the glitter as much as I felt necessary. I think I applied three coats to my cuticle area in the end.
