Manicure Monday

barry m - personal best

Hello my Loves ­čÖé

For this week’s nail colour I’ve chosen Personal Best by Barry M.

With the sun finally making an appearance in Scotland this week I’m getting into the spirit of summer which for me means getting out the pastel nail shades.

The colour is from Barry M’s Speedy Quick Dry spring Range.

I would describe Personal Best as a dusty muted lavender, it’s a lovely shade as it’s not too bold and bright but rather a pretty and ┬ádelicate way to have a pop of colour on your nails.

I found the formula and application really easy, some drugstore nail polishes can be slightly on the thin side but I only needed 2 coats to get a nice even opaque finish.

They have a few other colours that I have my eye on so you my see more from this range.

Have you tried any of Barry M’s Spring Colours?

Manicure Monday

shellac creekside

Hello my loves!

It’s been a while but I am finally back with another Manicure Monday.

I’ve decided to be lazy and go back to my shellac roots as it’s just so much easier to maintain than constantly worrying if my polish is going to chip.

This time I decided on the gorgeous Creekside which is a stunning pastel blue. I’m usually quite cautious when it comes to blue shades as in my opinion they tend to wash me out a tad (I think it’s because I have blue undertone) but since I have decided to embrace summer with a bit of fake tan I think it doesn’t look too bad. The colour is coming off a wee bit paler on camera than in person, it looks more blue. It’s such an easy shade to apply as you really only need two coats for it to be fully opaque which is a plus for when you’re in a rush. and don’t want to sit and cure it.

What colours are you loving at the moment?

Nails of the week

I love a good raspberry shade, especially at this time of year. If you’re like me and have a pink undertone this shade has the right amount of blue in it while still being warm.

I love Barry M nail varnishes. They’re brilliant quality for the price tag and really do last quite a while. Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend!
