Monday's Manicure ft Denim Hearts

Currently reading: Secret Asset by Stella Rimington

Good afternoon lovely ladies,

Today I'd like to show you a manicure which was inspired by

I only found this blog recently but on my first visit I saw a manicure which I absolutely loved and knew I would have to try myself.

It started with a coat of Barry M Denim.  If I had been wearing this polish on its own I may have used two coats but as I knew I'd be stamping over it, I felt one coat was sufficient.  I'm happy to say that application was better this time than the first time I used this polish.

 I then stamped a full size heart image on my nails using Barry M Silver Foil and Bundle Monster plate BM317.  I was so happy this image stamped well as it's one of my favourites in the new set.  [Please ignore the loose bits of polish, this picture was taken pre-clean up]

 My final step was to apply a topcoat which unfortunately had the effect of smudging some of the stamping.  The flaws weren't as obvious in reality as they are in the photo. 

I was so happy with this manicure, not only with the design but also with the colour combination, and loved how it looked like I was wearing foils.  What do you think of it girls?

Bye for now,


  1. Wow, love the hearts on the blue base. Gorgeous mani!

  2. It looks great. Which top coat was it that you applied? :)

    1. Thanks :-) I used NYC Grand Central Station. I haven't tested it against China Glaze Fast Forward yet but I think FF dries faster.

  3. What a sweet mani - I need to try my Barry M denim soon LOL

    1. Lol, I agree. I'm curious to see how you'll use it in a manicure :-)

  4. Flawless manicure! I personally don't notice any smudging! (:

  5. This is simply amazing!! It looks like stickers or something :D Absolutely gorgeous! Love the color combination and the hearts! ;)
