Nails: Paint Explosion!

Hey guys!

Hope everyone is well. I have one exam out of the way..yay but 3 more to go...boo! But I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel or as my old teacher used to say I'm at the final 100m sprint of the race.
So this is just a quick post, I basically wanted to show you what I did with my nails today. I suddenly had the cool idea of trying out something that I like to call a paint explosion! It turned out like this....

What do you guys think?



To create this look I used what is pictured below (from left to right: Barry M in strawberry, Barry M in mint green, Rimmel in black cab, Barry M in peach melba and Barry M in berry). Start with a black base colour and then slowly drip the different colours down the top of your nails, taking any excess off where necessary and vola you have a quick yet effective 'paint explosion' nail design. I think the colours symbolise our english weather perfectly at the moment, mainly dark and cloudy with a hint of colour and warmth.



So what are your favourite nails colours at the moment? Any favourite brands of nail polish?

Love 

Ally J
