NOTD: Retro Sweeties!

Hi all.

I've done quite a few of these NOTD posts lately but I don't think one more would hurt ;-)
After I finally got the chance to remove the Barry M 'Coral' shade that I had on over the weekend, I turned my mitts to Barry M 'Pink Flamingo'... Quite a few of you mentioned this colour on my last post so when it came into my sight at Superdrug, I knew it had to be mine!

So, I painted my nails and as much as I adore the colour I felt there was something misssing...

What was that something?

...A bright orange stripe through my nails! They remind me of these boiled sweets I used to get when I was a dinky one.

Using Sleek Makeup 'Nailed' nailpolish in Florida, I put a somewhat wonky line through the middle of my nails to mix it up a bit. Well, what actually happened is that I got bored and the neon orange was staring me in the eye so I had to do something with it.

This is what they look like sans bottles...

The Sleek nailpolish is reallllly bright so I'm not sure if I would do it as an all over shade just yet, maybe when the sun makes a permanant fixture (yeah right) in our skies!

I'm tempted to try the gradient effect on my nails too like Milly from PearlsandPoodles but I don't have a very steady hand... or a lot of patience so I'll keep you posted on if I do venture into that prettiness :)

What funkydory stuff have you tried with your nails lately? Let me know!

I'm off to edit some photos now for a tutorial. Don't I spoil your tartlings!?!

5 stiletto lovers had something to say::

  1. These colours look amazing together! I've got both nail varnishes so i might have to give it a go... although i don't think mine will come out as neat and pretty as yours!:P xx

  2. Thanks girls!

    Milly: Your gradiant nails inspired me to try something different :)

    Fee: I really want to try the leopard print that you had the other day. Any tips?

    Sami: Mine were definitely wonky! I'm right handed so the stripes on my left hand were terrible! Lol.


  3. WOW! I sorta want to lick it..!! Very summery :) xxx
