Barry M – Pink Glitter Tip Nail Art
This post may contain affiliate links.
Welcome to another nail art post! I created this look using two of my favourite Barry M nail paints – ‘Lychee’ which is part of the Gelly effects collection and the very sparkly ‘Magenta Glitter’. Lychee is a perfect nude colour to use as a base for nail art, allowing other colours and glitters to stand out over the top of it. If you want to see what Lychee looks like on its own, have a look here. Magenta Glitter is a very intense fuchsia pink colour, that contains mainly fine flecks of glitter but does have a few larger blobs of glitter in too.
First I painted 2 thick coats of the Lychee Gelly nail paint over my nails and left to dry. Then I painted a thin coat of Magenta Glitter over the top to about halfway down each nail. After this coat had dried I painted another coat of the glitter nail paint, this time only about one third of the way down each nail, this way it gives a gentle graded effect to the glitter. I finished with a clear top coat which stops the glitter feeling rough, and gives a lovely sheen.
This sparkly nail art look is subtle and glamorous and perfect for Summer. The only problem is that as the tips of the nails are covered in 5 coats of polish (2 Lychee, 2 Magenta Glitter and 1 clear top coat) they are prone to chipping, so don’t create this nail art look too far in advance of the occasion otherwise you may get chips.
Lychee is part of the Barry M Gelly Effects Nail Paint range, priced at £3.99, available from Barry M.
UPDATE 30th Jan 2018 – Magenta Glitter is no longer available, but why not try out one of Barry M’s new glitter collections, such as Glitterati?
