Pink Glitter Roses

Hey everyone! Happy Monday. I'm starting the countdown again for trip away this weekend, which, as I mentioned in my last post, I spent last week counting down for as I thought it was last weekend... oops! At least I know it's definitely this weekend now. Anyway, on to the nails. I find that despite the fact that I have hundreds and hundreds of nail varnishes, I tend to only use the same colours or ones that I have to review, and as a result so many of my polishes don't get used and get forgotten about. It helps now that I have changed from a Helmer to Alex drawers from IKEA, because the drawers are much easier to use and don't feel like they are about to collapse as soon as you open them. Now I don't just keep a collection of polishes on my desk, and I try to use different colours in my drawers now and again, even though my priorities are products I have to review. Recently I saw on Pinterest that an old Barry M review of mine was quite popular, which included the shade Princess, and I remembered that I owned such a gorgeous shade, and I've been wanting to use it ever since. Then I stumbled upon this design on Pinterest and I knew it would be the perfect design to use the polish in. Unfortunately it's no longer available to buy, you could probably find it on eBay but for some reason they chose to stop making it, even though it's stunning! 

I used Barry M - Princess and Barry M - Lychee as the base colours, then I used Barry M - Cotton for the polka dots. I added roses using Morgan Taylor - Up In The Air-Heart* and Morgan Taylor - Perfect Landing*, plus Barry M - Princess on top. For the leaves I used OPI - Don't Mess With OPI and OPI - Who The Shrek Are You. Finished with two coats of Seche Vite on the glitter and one coat on the nude.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I love these old Barry M polishes, I really need to go back and have a try with some of them.
    This design is so pretty, it's a lovely change to all the Halloween manis around at the minute.
