NOTD – Barry M jelly shine, Models own Hypergel


My technique, when it comes to nail art is basic. Still with practice I feel I am improving. What I have come to realise is that I find the thicker Gel based formulas easy to work with. I also use thin paint brushes over dotting tools, as there is less chance of me scraping the background colour.

A little cheat I have found that helps speed up the drying time between coats is to use Elegant Touch Rapid dry for Nails £3.05 from Superdrug. This is an aerosol spray formula with added vitamin E. Elegant touch claims that nails will be touch within 1 minute. For this purpose it works well, I still wouldn’t risk doing the washing up after 1 minute though, once I’d finished my manicure.

The nail polishes I used today were;
•Barry M’s Gelly Hi Shine in Blueberry £3.99.
•Models own Hypergel effect polish in Naked Glow £4.99. (Little money saving tip, models own will be realising a 50% of code on Instagram on or around 29th Jan).
•Models Own Artstix Nail art pen – Black.
I also used some mini pearl decals as the centre of the flowers.


With more practice, hopefully I will be able to share something a bit more pro.

Bye for now, Katy.
