After seeing everyone else's fantastic creations, I was really looking forward to trying it, especially as it is so easy to use. I used a shocking pink Rimmel polish first, a colour I've had for ages. I then applied the Barry M and waited for the magic to happen...
|Left hand - it's acceptable|
On my left hand it look alright.
|Right Hand - definitely NOT acceptable|
But my right hand was smudged and chipped, with big lumps of Barry M. I had to encourage it to crack on my nails with an orange stick. It was a bit of a fail on this hand.
I talked to Laura from That's So Yesterday on Twitter who won my Barry M giveaway. She suggested that perhaps the bottom coat wasn't completely dry, which is probably true, as I applied it in a rush. I also think that I was a bit heavy handed with the Nail Effects application. I'll have to have another go at it so see if I can get a better finish.
It's a shame that it wasn't entirely successful, because this definitely isn't a look I'd wear everyday, and I wouldn't dare wear it for work! Halloween is probably the main time of the year that I'll sport these nails. I will have another play with it and take my time to see if I can get it working properly - I really want it to work, as it's such a fun thing to have!
By the way, I quite like the shocking pink/black combo - it makes quite a contrast, and is definitely not the black nail varnish peeling off look.
Have you had any issues with applying this?
