NOTD | Glitter Manicure with Barry M & Rimmel

Hey!  I haven’t done a nail related post for a long time, mainly because during the week I have to keep them subtle and natural looking for work.  However, I soon tired of looking at my boring hands and thought that I would experiment and try to make the most of a bad situation.  This look is my latest experiment and I have been wearing it on my nails for a couple of weeks so far.  It is made by using Rimmel Brit Manicure in Ivory Tower as the base, and Barry M Glitter Polish where the white tip would usually be.  I created the slight graduated glitter effect by first scraping most of the excess back into the bottle, so it’s small pieces of glitter rather than large that are left on the brush, and putting it halfway up my nails.  Then I wait for that to dry and get some of the bigger pieces of glitter and dot them carefully (ish) along the top of my nail.  Lastly I add a top coat to hold it all together and add shine, and voila! 
It is a really simple look, but I think it looks really pretty and is a nice alternative to having a regular french mani or just one colour on the whole nail. 
Rimmel and Barry M are two of my favourite brands for nail polish; I love Rimmel for their Pro collection and the flat brushes that create an even finish, and Barry M’s Gelly polishes have the most gorgeous range of colours and all have such a high shine. 
 Do you like this look?  What is your favourite daytime nail polish? xx
