Monday's Manicure

Currently listening to: 7 Colours by Lost Witness

Hello girls! I'm back in England now after spending two weeks on a business trip in Paris so it's back to blogging as usual :-)

Today I'd like to show my most recently acquired nail polish which is Barry M Nail Effects. Yes, I finally jumped on the crackling nail polish bandwagon.

I don't know why I waited so long to try this- I absolutely love the effect

Even my optician admired my nails

I wasn't sure how easy the polish would be to apply and as my thumb nail shows, it took a little getting used to, but after it was smooth sailing after the first nail

One coat is all you need. Great for dramatic nails, easy to use and handy for covering up a smudged base colour!

What do you think girls? Have you fallen for this look? Do you own any crackle polish?

Bye for now, Laura


  1. pretty!!!!!!! Unfortunately cant buy Barry M in Oz

  2. Love the effect! And pink & black look so great together!


  3. I have Black SHatter and I love it! I want to put it over EVERYTHING! lol

    I have tried it so far over Zoya Apple and ZOya Breezi....Apple was so pretty!

  4. @Ling, thanks :-) Lots of other brands have started bringing out crackle polish so hopefully you'll be able to find something in Oz!

    @Christie, thanks :-) The pink is a Ciate for Asos one I bought on sale. Chips really quickly so ideal to cover up!

    @Amber, it might be my new favourite polish! So many colours I want to try it over too!

  5. Ah so many combinations to choose from. I've used it a few times and it's much different from your usual solid colour.
    Nice to have you back!

  6. @Wing, thanks :-) Nice to be back. I guess you're happy someone else is back too ;-)
    I'm excited to try it with white as the base hehe

  7. I don't own any.:D
