It feels like it has been ages since I got round to doing one of these posts! My nails have been breaking constantly, and they're now very short, and it seems like whenever they grow the slightest bit they break again. Whenever my nails are short I try to do something a bit more interesting with them. I'm not very good at nail art to say the least. My hands are very shaky and it almost always goes wrong. I decided to try something different again yesterday, and this was the result.
This is Tangerine by Barry M, with Illamasqua Scorn on the tips. I added a top coat to take away the matte effect of Scorn. I can't find my glossy black that I own anywhere, so I had to improvise. The first finger is very messy, it didn't dry as fast as the others so when I applied the tips it pulled the polish a bit.
The orange could have done with another coat (I used two here) as it applies a little sheer. I used one coat of Scorn for the tips.
I don't think it looks too terrible, but it would certainly look better if it was neater! I like the overall effect though, it's a bit Halloween-y (it's never too early to get excited about Halloween) and it was very easy to do.
Barry M polishes cost £2.99 and can be bought from their website, and Illamasqua polishes cost £13.50 and can be bought here.
Have you tried either of these polishes? What did you think?
Disclosure: I bought these polishes myself.
