Barry M Gelly Grapefruit meets ..... Daring Digits Mix My Matte Up

Hi Goddesses

Today's Gelly pairing wasn't one of my favourites, but I can imagine quite a lot of you are going to like it.

As I mentioned in the preview post, Grapefruit just isn't my colour - it's exactly the sort of pinky corally colour that looks hideous with my skin tone.  That said, this is one of the polishes I've really liked when others have swatched it - go figure!

Grapefruit is born for summer.  It's perfect for the beach or just to bring some happiness to your nails.  This one also has the "gelly" finish nailed (forgive the pun) - of all of the polishes, this one felt the most like I was wearing a Gel manicure.

I layered this with a lovely glitter from Daring Digits (which you can buy here) - Mix My Matte Up.    Ashley describes this as a random mixture of matte glitters in different shapes, colours and sizes.

I've got no complaints with how this looked on the nail, and the overall combination looked very "pop" and happy.   It's hard though to fall in love with a glitter when you don't like the base you've used, so I'm going to try this again soon over a different colour.

We've still got a couple more combination posts left - hopefully they'll all be up before the weekend's over.  I'd love to know which has been your favourite so far.

Enjoy xx :)
