Barry M Instant Nail Effects Nail Paint.




Hi Girls. 

Barry M Nail paints are on offer 2 for £5 in Superdrug at the moment. I decided to go and have a little look as I havent purchased any nail varnishes in a while (My nails all broke after stopping biting them for ages but the habit has come back! :( Trying to rectify this!).
While browsing the different shades avaliable I came across this beut. At first glance you would assume it was just a normal plain black Barry M nail paint, but you would be wrong. On closer inspection i realised this is a Nail Effect nail paint Attatched to the lid is a little cardboard label which shows what effect this nail paint creates. It looked pretty cool and for a total of £2.50 (thanks to the offer) I couldnt resist.

I decided to pair it with Eyeko's Nail Varnish in 'Vintage Polish for elegant nails' I figured by using a lighter base colour the pattern created would stand out a lot more. 

To create the look all you need to do is paint your base colour on your nails. Once this is dry take the Instant Nail Effects Nail Paint and paint a single coat on your nail. - This is very important. If you paint more than one coat of this then the desired effect will not work, you will just end up with a big black blob on your nail! 
Once you have applied the first coat the nail paint dries almost instantly, as it does so cracks appear to form revealing the base colour you previously applied. This is what creates the pattern. I think its great as no nail will look the same. 
Below is the end result....

I love how they have come out! It looks so professional! Definately something I will be doing often! My sister tried it out over a white base and that looked amazing so I may try that out next time! 

Much Love.
