Candy Stripes

Just a quick post to show you the nails I did for the weekend. I've not had much time for nail art recently, over Christmas I was very busy doing Christmas designs for false nail orders so I had plain nails for most of December! I'm slowly easing back into it with a few simple designs though.


I used Barry M's 'Ballerina' Nail Paint (swatches & review here), and WAH Nails white nail art pen using the striping brush end. I chose Ballerina because I've been getting very excited for Spring and the arrival of pastel colours, and even though Ballerina isn't a pastel shade, it's very nearly there!






So, what do you think? Have you added Ballerina to your collection yet?

I know I keep going on about pastels on Twitter and in my last couple of posts but I really am so excited! I'm also very excited to see what Barry M have planned for this year, I should find out in a few weeks so stay tuned! Is there anything in particular you're hoping they'll release?

    1. I love doing stripes, they're so simple but very eye-catching. I've had more compliments on these than I get on my more intricate designs!

  3. Ooh, that's lovely! Looks very elegant. You're so neat!

    I was wondering about Barry M too - I'd like some more Silks perhaps. And I really really really want more colours in the lovely foils that are so good for stamping. Maybe a red foil and a purple one?

    1. Oooh I hadn't thought of the foils, I didn't realise they were good for stamping with!

  6. I've got a couple of things to say before I mention the manicure:
    1- I LOVE your domain name - the naily mail? Genius!
    2- You look so beautiful in your display pic!
    Okay, now on to the manicure: the colour is so gorgeous! That dusty pink/blush shade is my favourite and I did not know Barry M have released one like that! I understand that colours can come across slightly differently in photos than in person but the shade in the photo: I want it! hehe!
    Wonderful, truly! <3
