Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree.....

Hello guys, a quick post as I have Christmas wrapping to do and it takes aaaaaaaaaaaaaages cos I'm super OCD with these things.

Ok, so I have to confess to not being happy with this manicure at all. In fact, it came off the second after I took these photos. The reason I'm posting them is 'cos I actually really like the tree on my ring finger, but the rest of the manicure is just too busy. But I felt the tree deserved a post. 

So here goes. 


I used 3 of my new/unused polishes - Green Tea by Models Own, an amazing new Special Edition Barry M glitter and Pomegranate, a Barry M Gelly. 

This is Green Tea and Pomegranate. Green Tea has an incredibly odd finish, almost matt. I really didn't like it, but loved the colour. Pomegranate is the most beautiful colour, I've totally fallen in love with it. The picture above doesn't do it justice, it's a really deep pink and the glossy finish is stunning. 

The Special Edition Barry M (not sure of the name, it just says SLE 2012 on the bottom) is epic. Large pink, blue and green hexagons alongside small green glitter in a clear polish. Epic. A new favourite:) 

Sadly, my over enthusiastic and heavy handed application somewhat ruined this. It was just too, too much. Gutted. It's a shame cos I really love the tree, although it's not perfect. The blue star at the top doesn't work, and neither does the pink star, but it was on it's way. But when I realised the rest of the mani wasn't working, I just went a bit mad. Ah well, you win some, you lose some.

I lost this one. Sad face.

  1. Ahh I need to get that special edition Barry M glitter! I saw a couple of their special ones in Boots (blue and pink foils, I think), but I haven't managed to find that one yet :'(
