It’s been a while since I talked about my nails, so I felt a little update was in order. As you may have seen from my holiday instagram posts, I was sporting the most beautiful chrome nails for this year’s summer break in Marbella, but oh the pfaff! I’m not one for shellac as you know, and this was shellac, plus plus! Don’t get me wrong, I totally loved the effect, but boy did it take a long time. Three coats of shellac, two coats of the chrome powder being buffed in, with a fourth coat of shellac for the top coat – at one point, I actually thought I was going to miss my flight (yes, I had left it to the last minute!).
While there’s no getting away from the beauty of the chrome effect, I just can’t justify that much time, so I’m loving the Barry M Liquid Chrome Nail Paints as a quick and easy way to affect the same look without the pfaff.
Available in four colours, I was always going to love the rose gold shade (Razzle Dazzle) and I’m currently wearing the titanium grey shade (Glow Crazy) in the first photo up top. If you’re looking for something brighter, you could opt for Bright Lights, a yellow-gold, or Rain on Me, a blinging silver.
I love how Barry M manages to make a trend super-easy to dip into, minimal fuss and minimal expense.
What are you wearing on your nails?
