While I was at the Matalan Press day on Tuesday, my friend Reda and I decided to take advantage of their on-hand Barry M manicurists to get out nails done.
After being severely told off for how short my nails were I was eventually allowed to pick what some colours and we got down to it! I have never had my nails painted professionally before, so it was really interesting to have it done for the first time. My manicurist was so fast, and layered the varnish on while it was still wet, which is something I would never do at home for fear of smudging.
I chose a light pink base, with the new BarryM crackle effect topcoat in pink (they do blue as well now) on top, and Reda went for a red and glitter base with the classic black crackle effect on top. I haven't tried the crackle effect before, although I've seen it on a lot of other bloggers and I really like it. It was difficult to photograph properly though!
