Swatch - Barry M Teal

So, have been AWOL this week after my lovely bf took me to Italy, for a fun filled week of art, pasta and gelato! In fact, I think there was only one day when I didn't eat gelato, and there were several days when I ate many gelatos.  Practically had to be rolled through the airport home:) So anyway, I had to resist painting my nails for almost 10 days! Arggggggh. Oddly, since I've got back I've been struggling for inspiration, so until I come up with something better I thought I'd do a swatch of a colour I've had in my collection for months but haven't got around to using. And, I have to say, I LOVE it. I've been staring at my nails all day. Below is 3 coats with no top coat. It's very thin, and you need to be fairly careful with the application, but it's worth it for the beYOOTiful colour. 

P.s. Please excuse the state of my nails, I've been so busy unpacking/catching up/trying to work off the gelato that I haven't given them a proper shape/hydration session. They are very unhappy  little cuticles:( 


  1. I can imagine some little fish, starfish and octopus swimming in that gorgeous colour!

  2. lol - I think you're trying to give me ideas:) As you'll see in my next post, I accidently, somehow, ended up making my nails into the Jamaican flag! Doh!
