Friday's Fun NOTD

Currently listening to: War at Home by Josh Groban

Hello dear readers,

Aren't we all glad Friday has finally rolled around? :-)

Today I have a fun manicure inspired by Sara. Here's my manicure:

To start, I painted my nails with Barry M Strawberry Ice Cream (colour shown is not true to life)

Then I used Barry M Nail Effects to paint crackle polish diagonally across my nails

Getting the lines straight was difficult but with crackle polish I don't think being neat matters too much

Finally, I applied a clear top coat and applied pink star nail jewels (bought in an assorted pack from Poundland)

I then applied the top coat over my nails again to ensure the jewels would not catch on anything and fall off

What do you think of this manicure? Would you try it?

Bye for now,


  1. Aww wow! I love your version of this! The stars add a pretty touch to it =) Thanks for linking me btw!

  2. Love this a lot! If I had long enough nails I'd try it! xo

  3. So fab with the stars. You must be very patient! x

  4. This is definitely fun and unique.:D

    Have a wonderful weekend, Laura!:D

  5. Ooh very nice, would never have thought of doing that.
    Just played about with my dotting tool, quite fun with different sizes. Thanks again!

  6. @Sara, you're welcome! Thanks for inspiring me :-)

    @Daisychain, I'm sure it could work on shorter nails too, maybe using only one jewel per nail instead of three. Worth a try!

    @Giddynici, ha, not sure about that. This really didn't take long though.

    @Marie, thanks :-) Hope you had a great weekend!

    @Kim, thank you!

    @Wing, you're welcome :-)
