I am absolutely losing my mind being stuck at home recovering from surgery. And so, to celebrate being able to sit up without wanting to cry, I decided to do some nail art. I did some watermelon nail art HERE so I stuck with the fruit theme for these cute pop art nail art bananas.
If you’re a regular round her you’ll know I’m a big fan of Barry M, especially their nail varnishes. Great colours and finishes for a very affordable price, what could be better? So when I spotted the new Barry M Speedy Quick Dry nail paints I was powerless to resist. They just dropped into my basket. We’ve all been there.
Multicoloured Gradient Nail Art
These aren’t my best gradients but in my defence I was going to do something over the top so they didn’t need to be too perfect. However, I ran out of time and patience with them and decided they would be fine as they were! #nailbloggerproblems
These were done with Barry M pastel nail varnishes and are topped with two coats of Essie ‘Good To Go’ (Still not liking it as much as Seche Vite by the way…)
I’ve done a tutorial here for how to do gradients, this is the same principle but with 4 colours instead of 2.
I might actually update these tomorrow and post some pictures as I’m still not too enamoured with them…
Kiko 372 Nude Nail Varnish
This is another of the polishes I got in the Kiko sale in France (2.50 Euro per polish… it would’ve been rude not to take advantage of that so I got loads!)
Kiko 372 Nude nail varnish is a creamy blush coloured polish with more than a hint of grey (and regular readers will know how I feel about grey!) I really like this barely-there polish, it is so classy without being boring and will go with absolutely any outfit.
This nail varnish needed 2 fairly thick coats to get full coverage, but Kiko polishes always apply and dry very well so that wasn’t a problem. This is shown topped with Seche Vite.
You can get Kiko polishes HERE.
OPI Lights Of Emerald City
This beautiful beast is one of my recent birthday polishes and I absolutely adore it – it is like nothing else I own (which is pretty hard work with so many polishes!)
