Friday's Fashion Feature - ASOS Mixed Pattern Tunic Inspired Barry M Nail Art

Friday, 24 April 2015

So today I bring you another installment of Friday's Fashion Feature (February's, Valentine Special, March's). This monthly feature has to be my fave as it's a great challenge to create a nail look from a piece of clothing.

As soon as I saw this Vero Moda mixed pattern tunic on sale on ASOS I knew it would be great as nail art. The 3 bold colour combo is fab and the pattern isn't too difficult for me and my shaky hands.

I picked 3 Barry M nail paints; The Way You Make Me Teal & You Drive Me Navy from the Sunset Collection (review here), and Coconut from Barry M's Summer 2014 Gelly range (review here).

Barry M Coconut, The Way You Make Me Teal & You Drive Me Navy

Firstly I painted 2 coats of The Way You Make Me Teal on my ring finger and 2 coats of Coconut on the rest of my fingers.
I couldn't be bothered to wait until the polish was 'vinyl' dry, so I used the brush from The Way You Make Me Teal, turned it side ways and slid it across my first 2 nails.
I then dabbed some You Drive Me Navy onto an old gift card and used a striping brush to draw the line work onto all my nails (excuse the irregular lines .... we can all blame my thyroid).
Adding the dots onto the Coconut sections with a dotting tool (ball point pen if you don't have one) finished the design off.
I ended with a coat of Barry M Matte topcoat (because I don't do enough matte manis) and voila.

I love the dress and the nails but can imagine it would be a little to much to wear them both together. I think I might recreate this design in some other summer colours as I love it so much.

You can buy all the Barry M products listed in the post from BarryM.com (for international shipping), Superdrug or Boots from £2.99-£4.99 each.

What do you think? What 3 colours do you think would look the best in this design?

Have a lovely weekend.

P.S. I am away this weekend so there will be no more posts until Monday.
