It’s day 17 and we’re now over the half way point in the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts 33 Day Challenge. Day 17 calls for artwork with your favourite brand. How can I decide which is my favourite brand?
I love my Chanel polishes. I only have 8 of them – because they’re so expensive, so just an occasional luxury.
I love L’Oréal Color Riche polishes too. I have thirty-one of them. They are also expensive in terms of price per millimetre, as they only come in 5ml bottles. But you can often get them for £1.30 or so at Fragrance Direct. They last really well on me. Plus, I consider the brand one of my favourites because over the year that I’ve been painting my nails, when I have really loved a polish, I have bought a backup bottle. I have 6 backup bottles and 4 of those are L’Oréals.
But I think I should judge my favourite brand to be Barry M. I have forty-seven bottles of Barry M – that’s more than any other polish. It’s inexpensive, easy to get hold of, comes in a great range of colours, and the brand is great at quickly bringing new trends to market (thermal colour-changing polish next please, Barry M!)
So I’ve chosen three Barry M colours for a braided manicure.
I’m rather proud of these nails. I’ve only previously done one braided finger as an accent, so I’m pleased that I did a whole manicure.
- Base colour: two coats of Barry M Turquoise
- Briad colours: Barry M Turquoise, Barry M Christmas Blue (SLE 2012 A), Barry M Blackberry
- Top coat: Glisten & Glow HK Girl
