BarryM Mint Green

Today's choice of nail polish was decided purely by a package I received this morning. Joyce from MarbleNails sent me a fantastic nail art pen (picture right at bottom of this post) and I wanted to wear a colour that I could use the pen on. So I thought it'd be a good opportunity to try out BarryM's Mint Green.

I've been seeing this colour on lots of other people's blogs and I almost didn't bother getting it because it's not the type of colour Iusually go for but I have to say I LOVE it!

It's such a pretty, summery colour. The application, as always with BarryM, was really good and there was hardly any clean up needed. There are 3 coats in these pictures.

So more and more I'm learning to try out things I wouldn't normally consider :)

Then I got to try out my new nail art pen. As you can see from the below pictures I didn't exactly go mad but I'm easing myself into the nail art thing gently (artistic is not my middle name!)

I think it turned out ok though. Simple but cute :)

Don't I have the wrinkliest palms?! I hate them. They've always been like that from childhood.

Below is a picture of the nail art pen Joyce sent me. Thank you so much Joyce!

As always don't forget to click on the pictures to get the full effect!
Hope you guys are all having a fab weekend!
