Duck egg and gold nail art

Here comes one of my many, many backlogged nail art designs. This one is pretty recent but I wish I had thought ahead and taken more detailed pictures!

I really like this bad boy! Duck egg blue is like one of my favourite colours. The accents in my livingroom are even that colour! I especially love it paired with gold (it was my theme for decorating my Christmas tree)

This was also my first time trying out leopard print which as u can see will take a bit of practice!

I used 2 Barry M colours for this nail art – number 320 in gold from the foil effects range and 245 from the Christmas 2012 collection. I really like the Barry M polishes! They are a great price and the brushes are easy to work with. I would highly recommend this brand if you want to start building a collection on a budget. For both colours I used 2 coats as u feel that this gives a more intense colour and evens the whole thing out. The 245 is an amazing colour on its own with a shimmer through it. You kinda get an idea what it looks like from the lid but obviously it’s not exactly like that cause nail polish cant become 3D (much to my disappoint). I used a black nail art stripper for the accent on the leopard print and then sprinkled 2 glitters from the Andrea Fulerton range of nail art supplies which are great!

You can get all the supplies for this from Superdrug for under £11 apart from the topcoat which is China Glaze! It’s my favourite topcoat of the moment!

As you can see i had a small incident with a jumper so there is a pattern stamped on my thumb nail. It was also dark outside when I took the photos so I do apologise, but I like doing my nails to relax at night. I wish I had thought to take some in natural light as these pictures really don’t do the glitters, which I layered, any justice!

Justice for Glitter – now there’s a group I could be a part of.
