Getting Girlie with Barry, his M, and his pale pinks

BARRY M – Pale Pink Skittle

Hi Goddesses

Today I have for you 3 pale pinks from Barry and his M – Baby Pink, Bright Pink and Strawberry Ice Cream.  Whilst I don’t really like this look on me, I am quite taken with this mani – there’s something about the sugary simplicity of it that just makes me smile J

Baby Pink is on the middle finger – a super girlie pastel built on a peachy (rather than white) base.  This needed 3 coats.

On the thumb and pinkie we have Bright Pink, which is more of a Bright Pale Pink. This is your classic Barbie pink – sweet, pale but intense.   This only needed 2 coats.

On the index and ring fingers is Strawberry Ice Cream.  This is very similar to Baby Pink, but probably one tone deeper.  Again, it has a cream rather than white base, which makes it more palatable.  Personally, I think real-life strawberry ice cream is darker than this – well, it always has been in the ice cream parlours I’ve bought it at!

For a bit of fun I had another dance with Konad the Barbarian and this went a LITTLE better.  Following advice, I filed my plonker a bit, and this certainly helped.  The hindrance this time was that I used Barry M Silver Foil as my stamping polish and it dried *ridiculously* fast.  Whilst it did transfer perfectly to the stamp every time, I only got it onto the nail half the time!  There really was NO time at all to look at the plonker, check you had the pattern and decide where to plonk.  So, if you’re going to use Silver Foil for stamping it’s dab, swipe, plonk, plonk.  Preferably within 0.7 seconds.

So there you go – that’s Barry’s sugary pinks.

Enjoy J  xx


Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
