NOTD – Nail of the Day – Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine in ‘Papaya’ and Essie ‘Cute as a button’

Just a quick nail of the day post.

I got the Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine polish in my recent spring make-up haul (HERE) and I got Essie’s ‘Cute as a button’ in my April Glossybox (HERE) and I thought that it’d be a really lovely spring look to do my nails with the softer, creamier Barry M polish but with an accent nail on each hand in the brighter, pinkier, Essie colour.

On my left hand I have the thumb as the accent colour and on my right hand it’s the ring finger. I absolutely love these two colours together and having the accent colour as a brighter, more vivid version as the all over colour is really nice.

Sorry for the blurry photo, I was in a hurry and the silly camera decided that my nails were a background to blur – But on a plus side, you can still see the colours just fine and the horrid ridges in my nails are less visible!

      Ooh wow those are fab prices!

      Hopefully they will. That's the thing, isn't it, it's hard to spend lots on just one thing when you know the same (or less) money can buy soo many more bargain items! xx
