Barry M Blue Plum with Studs

Another cheeky nail art post today. Can you tell I'm procrastinating with these Barry M Gelly swatches?!

So many people are doing the 31 Day Challenge and it's making me really want to hop on the bandwagon and do it all over again. Even though I nearly went crazy when I did it last time! The only thing I'm worried about is that I won't have enough time to create the nails and post regularly, but I suppose I can just work my way through it if and when I can. I'm just spilling my brain produce all over the keypad right here but you follow me right? Let me know what you think, should I put myself through that again? After all, it did force me to come up with some kick ass manis!




The base colour is two coats of Barry M Blue Plum*. The name choice is odd as I don't see a single hint of plum in this polish. Anyway, more to come on that when I get round to posting the swatches!
The studs I used are from Born Pretty Store and I attached them following this tutorial.
Finally, I finished it with one coat of Essence Better Than Gel top coat.

  1. Want this colour, can't wait for this new collection to be available in shops!
    I've not long started out blogging and I really want to start the challenge, but like yourself I'm worried I won't have enough time to post on a daily basis as I'm starting my masters degree next week. I may do it but do maybe 2 or 3 posts a week. I'm gonna have to do it properly sometime though, seems like a sort of initiation into the nail blogging world!

  2. Hi, How is that Essence top coat? And where do you get your Essence from?

  3. Love the swatches :) just to let you know the name 'Blue Plum' was a printing error, the true name of this colour is 'Blackberry' (my bottle also was labelled Blue Plum so I asked Caroline the PR!) xx

  8. I like these! And yes, do the challenge! You don't have to pressure yourself--over at Glittericity I'm not changing manis every single day, just doing the next challenge in line every time I change them, with a few interruptions for special occasions. The 31-day challenge might end up taking me more like 50 days, but it's all about having fun, right? :)
