Wear it pink! Barry M Pink Sapphire Glitter

Sunday, 7 October 2012

I have a pink glitter / sequin / sparkle explosion for you all today.  I picked up one of the new Barry M glitters yesterday and thought I'd do a pink inspired manicure to fit in with it.

This month is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and whilst I'm more than aware that painting my nails pink isn't going to cure cancer, I think it's important to get involved in opportunities to raise awareness for charities, and this is a point towards their wear it pink campaign.

I layered the Barry M Glitter (Pink Sapphire) over a black.  I love this glitter, it spreads and palces well on the nail, so not too much faffing required to make it look even.

On my left hand, I also used Models Own Glitter in Magenta Divine, I did a gradient using  Barry M Strawberry Ice Cream, Pink Flamingo and Kiko 312 (a hot shimmery pink), which I then dotted with a similar design I used on my gradient dotticure.  I used some pink "glequins" on my ring finger and then jazzed up a couple of nails with some stickers my lovely friend L sent me.

On my right hand I used the same polishes to create similar nail designs, and also did a dotted heart design on my thumb.  On my ring finger, I did a criss-cross pattern over Models Own Glitter in Magenta Divine using striping tape, and painted 17 Colour Switch in Pink over the top, forgetting how dark it would go post top coat, so it has took on more of a purple shade.  I really liked this effect so I am going to give it another go soon with more contrasting colours so it shows up better.
