Now that we’re into November, I feel like it’s acceptable to start raving about Autumn/Winter everything. Starting with the latest additions to the Barry M Coconut Infusions range: the first AW collection that actually got me excited. When I laid my eyes upon it, I was immediately taken by the range of shades and just thought, ‘YES. Yes. THIS is a winter collection’. We’ve seen bolds a plenty and berry shades have started to leave a sour taste in my mouth. But a whole collection of muted tones (I’m conveniently ignoring the obligatory bold red) is something at least slightly less done.
Patience and restraint be damned, I set to work on a mani using all the shades I could plus a bit of striping tape.
The Nail Art
I started out with two coats of Oyster as my base, then topped it with a thin coat of Seche Vite to make it dry nice and fast.
I snipped some short lengths of striping tape and laid down three pieces on each nail, creating 4 geometric sections. I didn’t follow any rules – just wanting a different patchwork pattern on each nail.
My favourites from this collection have to be Paradise (not featured here) and Storm simply because I own nothing else like them!
