NOTD: Barry M '66 Matt White'

Whenever I see white shoes, trousers or nailpolish, my mind automatically thinks of the typical "Essex Girl" but that being said, I have yet to meet a girl from Essex who wears any of the above and doubt I ever will after The Only Way Is Essex took over our TV screens.
I've never worn white nail polish as an all over nail shade but instead use it as a base coat for other nail polishes but after a conversation with a male friend a few weeks ago, I had to try it out. According to the friend, white nailpolish looks good and is definitely something he thinks highly of and my repsponse to this was more along the lines of "What the hell do you know?".
Anyway, I thought I would give it a try purely because of the conversation...

Tippex (a.k.a. White Out for some of you outside the UK) comes to mind, doesn't it?
I have to admit that I don't completely hate the concept of all-white nails but I just don't think it is for me. Plus it makes my cuticles look even worse than they really are and that is definitely saying something because my cuticles are already a mess. The consistency of the Barry M 'Matt White' - No idea why it's called 'Matt' when there is no matte finish to it at all nor is it spelt with an 'e' - is pretty good and only took 2 thick coats to give it a nice finish.

What do you lot think? Are white nails your thing? They're not for me but I'm sure there are people out there that can pull the look off effortlessly.
As usual, you can buy Barry M nailpolishes from Superdrug, Boots or Barry M Online and are priced at £2.99 but if you're lucky then you might be able to snag some on a 2 for £5 deal at one of the stores mentioned.

Until next time...
Keep swivelling those hips in your

9 stiletto lovers had something to say::

  1. I´m not really into white polish, as you said looks like you´re putting Tippex on your nails! (thing that I did when i was... maybe 13? hahahaha)

  2. I quite like it! It would look really cool in Matt! I have china glaze's "oxygen" which is a lovely pinky grey toned White and looks great for the summer xxx

  3. Hi Padme,
    I think I was putting Tippex on my nails at 11 and then when I was 12, I probably discovered that I could colour on top of the Tippex with a highlighter and I'd have coloured nailpolish in school! Hahaha.x

  4. Hi Lauren,
    I really like the sound of Oxygen so I may need to look in to that now!x

  5. I love white nail polishes, and I LOOOOOVE Barry M (:
