Barry M Gelly Week - They Stamp Too!! (with Cheeky Jumbo Plate 5)

Hi Goddesses

It’s Barry M Gelly Week on the blog this week to celebrate the very imminent arrival of the new Barry M Gellys to the High Street.  They are due to launch next week on the 5th, but I know some ladies have had luck picking some up already.

Today’s post uses all 3 of the 5 Gellys from the Collection – you can refresh yourself on them HERE – and is over a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.

One of the hidden secrets of the Gelly polishes is that they also make great stamping polishes, so I wanted to include a mani that put that to the test and showed you how opaque they are.

I am currently a million times in love with the new Cheeky Jumbo Plates and this lovely pattern comes from Plate 5, which is all about Music.   As on most large plates, some stamps work better than others, and this one wasn’t quite perfect for me.  I struggled to get the whole pattern on the plonker, even when I tried with a Konad.

So what do you do when that happens?  You’re in love with your mani but your stamping is a little lacking.  Well on this occasion, I added a skinny French tip.  The funny thing is, it looks like it was supposed to be there!  It really rounds the mani off nicely, and grounds it.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s Gelly Nail Art – I have loved each and every look, although today’s is probably my least favourite.  Which one have you loved the most ??

Have a great weekend.  Enjoy xx :)
