NOTD | Barry M Combo


I have realised that despite constantly painting my nails and purchasing nail polishes, I never seem to blog about them. I thought that another idea for my blog would be to occasionally do these nails of the day/week posts where I just show you what I'm sporting on my nails that particular week.. so here is the first!

For this look I have gone for a Barry M combo as they are one of my favourite nail polish brands and make up about a third of my collection. The base shade is Barry M's Gelly hi-shine paint in Lychee which is a recent addition to my nail polish collection and is the perfect nude shade! I love this colour but thought it looked a little plain on the nails, so I decided to spice up the look by adding a top coat of glitter. For this I used another nail polish by Barry M in Amethyst Glitter and painted a fairly thin layer of the glitter onto the base colour to create this look. 

I think this is quite a classic nail look. I have found it goes well with almost any outfit and would look great for any occasion too! This is definitely a combo I will be wearing again.

What colour are you sporting on your nails this week?
