31DC2013 Day 13: Animal Print


Last year I got really creative for Day 13 of the challenge with some real feather nail art but this year I couldn't come up with anything half as exciting so I've played it safe with some classic leopard print nails!


All the polishes I used in this mani are from Barry M's upcoming Autumn/Winter releases. There are 12 new polishes launching including some mattes, textured glittery polishes, a new creme and a crystal topper. I haven't had a chance to try them all yet so I thought I'd smash a few bottles with one stone as it were, and mix them up in some nail art to get a feel for the new offerings.



I used Barry M Matte Vanilla as my base colour and then took a nail art brush to freehand on the leopard print in Barry M Countess and Majesty which are both textured polishes. I can already tell that Countess is gonna be my favourite of the textured polishes - it's very dark and mysterious with a plum base and hidden gold flecks. Just my type!



Barry M's Autumn/Winter collection is launching on September 25th in Superdrug and exactly one week later on October 2nd in Boots.

  7. Gorgeous, I really like the matte Barry M ones that are coming out, so wearable and Autumnal. I also like the look of these textures, I hated the other ones that looked like pebble dash.
