Hey everyone! Today I have a step-by-step tutorial to show you. It's been such a long time since I posted one and the other day I was asked on Instagram whether I still post them and I decided it was time to start posting the tutorials I recently created for Barry M. I wasn't really sure where I was going with these I just decided to experiment and I ended up with this boho-ish design. I wasn't sure whether I liked it or not, but having not looked at it for a while I think I do!
I used the recent Speedy nail polish collection for these, plus Cotton* from the spring Gelly collection.. I never got around to posting my full review of them due to exams etc, which I still feel guilty about. But I'm doing my best to try and stay on top of reviews nowadays so I think you'll be seeing more in the future. However, these polishes really impressed me, they have a wide brush that Barry M hadn't used before spring this year and it really helps with application. They're super fast drying and there's quite a few colours across the two releases (spring, and summer) which means you've got plenty to choose from! They sell for £3.99 so if I were you I'd pop down to your local Boots/Superdrug and give them a go if you haven't already.
Step 1: Using a base of Turbo Charged* paint 2 coats of polish on your nail
Step 2: Using a striping brush and Full Throttle* paint two stripes forming a triangle on each nail
Step 3: Fill in between your stripes using On Your Marks*
Step 4: Then, using Lap of Honour* and Kiss Me quick, draw triangles to the tip of your nail
Step 5: Add a further triangle to the design using Road Rage*
Step 6: Using Supersonic* and Cotton* add additional details. I used the tip of a detail brush for the dots and a thinner striping brush to add additional highlighting lines. Then I finished it off with a coat of Barry M - Plumpy Topcoat*
