Barry M Royal Glitter Nail Art

All of the new Barry M Autumn/Winter shades go so well together, the mix and match possibilities are endless! The Royal Glitters particularly look nice as an accent nail with the Mattes, for example. Today I've done a tape mani using 2 of the Royal Glitters!

Floral Buttons - Nicole by OPI Selena Gomez Nail Art and Swatches

I'm back! My holiday was great and it's nice to have a little break now and again. Big thank you to my guest posters, Sammy, Danielle and Hannah! 

I have some nail art today featuring colours from the Nicole by OPI Selena Gomez collection, along with some swatches.

Guest Post from Polly Polish - Gloomy Grey-dient

My third and final guest poster is Hannah from Polly Polish. Hannah was probably the first person from the blogging world who I began speaking to regularly outside of social media realms, and she's become a good friend and I appreciate having her around to vent to and discuss ideas with! She's also a fantastic designer and has been known to furnish me with wonderful nail mail. She does lovely tape nail art and gradients, and I'm happy she's created one for my blog today.

I hope I'm not the only nail polish blogger for whom the awful affliction of cack-handedness strikes at the most inopportune moments. I had such grand plans for this guest post because I'm so excited to have been asked by Allie - she's bloody amazing so I feel quite honoured. What you see here is my 6th attempt at creating something worthy of appearing on Brit Nails, and I'm still not sure I achieved that target. Nevertheless, these are my gradient nails for you today, in my favourite colour, grey.

Even sat here writing this I am wearing a grey dress, cardigan and slippers. It might make some people sad, but I love it. The gloomy effect of these nails is particularly apt given the turn in the weather lately too.

Guest Post from The Nailasaurus - Pastel Galaxy

My second guest poster is Sammy from The Nailasaurus. I'm sure most of you, if not all of you, are familiar with Sammy's blog already! The Nailasaurus was one of my first inspirations when I started out blogging and still is today. Sammy is a master of studs, stamping, striping tape, gradients and tutorials, amongst many other things. I'm always excited to see a new post from her in my feed! Recently she's been doing amazing galaxy nail art and she's created some just for my blog which I'm very happy about!

Hello readers of Brit Nails. First off I have to say a big thanks to Allie for inviting me to post for her and putting her trust in me today! I’ve decided to show off some pastel(ish) galaxy nails. I’ve been completely obsessed with this style of nail art recently. The bright colours make a nice change from the traditional dark and mysterious galaxy nails, especially in the summer months. My obsession combined with how easy this nail art is makes it one of my go-to styles when I’m short on time or inspiration.

Guest Post from Totally Nailed - Monochrome

I'm on holiday for a week as of yesterday, so I've arranged 3 guest posters to help me out while I'm gone! I was planning on having more, but I left it a bit last minute and was, as always, disorganised. I'll arrange it better next time! (so she says). 

The first post is courtesy of Danielle from Totally Nailed. I came across Danielle's blog a little while ago and I love her nails and clear pictures. She posts lovely nail art and mixes it up with swatches too. She also does a very good spray marble which I wish I could achieve!

Hi Readers!

I am very happy to be doing a guest post for the lovely Allie, she is of course one of my favourite blogger ladies and so, so talented! It’s quite the honour. I have been dying to do some monochrome nail art for a while now, so what better time than today.

Sparkling Windows

Barry M Matte Nail Paint Swatches and Review

Press Sample

If you're anything like me, you'll be more than happy to wear bright colours on your nails all year round, but there's something very palette cleansing about neutral Autumn and Winter shades, and we all need something to go with our cosy chunky knits and boots! Step forward Barry M's matte polishes, 5 sophisticated, warming shades that you'll almost definitely be able to wear at work!

UK Indie Polish - Hairy Legs London

Hi! I have a UK indie brand to show you today. It's great to see UK indie polish springing up, for so long there was nothing at all! I considered starting one myself around a year ago but I realised I am far too lazy, so I'm happy to see motivated talented ladies around the UK doing it. 

This particular brand has the best name ever...Hairy Legs. Not a name you'll forget in a hurry! I also can't resist the quirky logo on the bottle stickers. Hairy Legs creator Sanita sent me 4 polishes to try.

Tribal Triangles

I'm excited and nervous today because I've just sent my RSVP for the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards! I'll be heading down to London in October to meet with some amazing bloggers, Sammy of The Nailasaurus, Lucie of Lucy's Stash and Alice of One Nail To Rule Them All. It'll be like some sort of nail blogger invasion. Can't wait!

Today's nail art was inspired by my slightly strange love of triangles. My base colour is OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, and I freehanded all of the little triangles with a small nail art brush. Colours used are Barry M Pomegranate and Barry M Guava
