I love Barry

Posting quite a lot now cos I feel bad for not posting for over a week!
Just painted my nails so thought I'd show you my new design! 

Basic but tricky! I'll show you another pic of how I done it...

Simply by taking some masking tape and placing it on my nail where my white tip starts! Sounds easy, but it can be kind of tricky! I made sure the tape wasn't too sticky by touching it a few times, as I had previously put on a base coat, and didn't want that to come off! Then I simply took my polish colour and painted on the tip, not mattering if I got it on the tape or not!
In this look I used 'Peach Melba' by BarryM. I was originally going to use black, but I think I need a new one! I don't always choose to use BarryM, it's just because I've got a ridiculous collection of the colours, so it works quite well!

I then topped off the look by using BarryM, topcoat, basecoat & nail hardener to give that shiny effect!
Not sure why I went for this look, think I wasn't too bothered about having something crazy, so went for subtle but interesting!

So here's the collection.



  1. I really like this, even though it is subtle, it's still pretty! :) x

  5. I've never seen that color done with the french tip, I will have to give that a go. Looks really pretty. I also use tape to create mine, it truely can be tricky. Thanks for the tip! xx -Lerin
