After Christmas I started to grow a bit sick of the darker vampy colours on my nails so this week I chose a ballet pink & sparkle to freshen them up a bit! I chose Barry M's nail paint in Ballerina which is a very pretty light pink, and then finished it off with an aquarium nail effect in Atlantis on my ring fingers. For my base coat, I used Sally Hansen's Diamond Strength nail hardener and Barry M's Basecoat Topcoat & Nail Hardener as a top coat. (You would think I have nails of steel by now...unfortunately not!) Then to ensure they would dry quickly I applied some Essence Express Dry Drops to each finger. This is a total life-saver by the way...I really recommend it!
This mani held up well for about 4 days before chipping. I took this picture on day three so you can probably tell they're not perfectly fresh but I was happy with how long they lasted! What's your current go-to nail colour at the moment? Are you still rocking the darker shades or are you looking forward to spring pastels??
