Barry M Lolly Gloss Gradient Nail Art

Monday, 30 May 2016

Ever since I swatched Barry M's gorgeous Lolly Gloss collection I've been dying to try out some nail art with them, and I knew the exact design I wanted to try.
Can you remember when OPI released their Colour Paints collection and everyone was using them over a holo base? Yeah, that look.

I started off with a couple of coats of Barry M's Silver Lights (a gorgeous Christmas 2013 limited edition) as the base.

After that dried I started dabbing on the Lolly Gloss colours, first at the cuticle end of my nail with the darker shade, moving down toward the free edge swapping the colours as I went. I found that by gently mixing the layers between colours it blended well enough without leaving any of the previous colour on the brush.

I adore how it looks and I have had so many compliments on this design, I've also spent a solid 10 minutes a day just staring and twirling (maybe also sniffing - you know these have a gorgeous scent when dry so don't judge) my nails in the light. It's easily the prettiest mani I've worn this year.

What do you think, do you love these sheer gradients? What other designs have you seen these Lolly Gloss colours used for that you've thought have been amazing?

I feel like right here, right now, I am going to make a heart felt plea to Barry M to release more colours in this range and go back on their hideous 'Limited Edition' threat. Please release at least one blue, a green and a yellow ... pretty please (*insert praying hands emoji here).

P.s after a couple of days wearing these as they are above, I felt like I wanted to add something to them but I wasn't sure what. My sister suggest matte dots, ladybirds or animal print, and feeling lazy I went with dots. I used Silver Lining from the new Molten Metals collection and ended up leaving it shiny as I loved the extra sparkle.

You can buy the Lolly Gloss & Molten Metals colours from Superdrug & Boots stores nationwide for £3.99 each and I couldn't recommend them enough if you fancy creating some very easy, very gorgeous nail art.
