O is for: Olive from Barry M, with oil slick studs

It’s letter O this week in the A to Z series challenge and I have Olive from Barry M. I had quite a few Os to choose from, but hadn’t yet used this one from the most recent Barry M collection.

I used two coats. It dried really quickly, but it was very hot, so that may have been the cause of it. Olive is a light khaki colour and part of the Summer 2014 collection. I do think it has a more autumnal feel though.

I bought the oil slick studs – or cabochons – from She Sells Seashells. I’ve known Sarah, the owner, since very early on in my nails blogging days and I’m really pleased to see her business doing so well. She has a great range of nail art items, from studs and stickers to nail vinyls, charms and cabuchons.
