I love grey and pink together so naturally, I chose an ombre in those colours before adding the black Zebra print and pink fluffy accent. The Barry M grey (Cappucino) is a recent addition to my collection and is a gorgeous, warm grey and I love it, it's very grown up and chic! I chose the pink nail fluff because I knew I had the pink Barry M which would work beautifully as a base under it and boy, was I right.
Ombre : Barry M Strawberry Ice-cream 309, Barry M Cappucino 341
Zebra Print : Paperchase Nail Art Pen in Black (No name)
Accent : Barry M Strawberry Icecream 309, MUA Fur Effect Nails Fluffy Puff
Tools : Sponge
Top Coat : Rimmel 60 Seconds Clear 740
Now I don't know whether it's because I didn't wait long enough for the Zebra print to dry or whether the top coat is rubbish or whether the nail art pen is the culprit, but some serious bleeding happened when I did more than one or two strokes of top coat - not ideal to say the least.
For the accent ring fluff, I gently pressed my still wet nail into a container (the lid) full of the fluff. I then gently pressed the fluff onto my nail with my thumb so that it stuck on good and proper before delicately brushing the loose bits onto a bit of paper with an old paintbrush, then transferred the left overs back into the pot for next time.
The 1.5g pot cost me £2.00 (£1.00 off the RRP) from Superdrug, which if you ask me is a great deal because I was surprised at how little I actually used.
Have you tried flocking powder or any other type of nail fluff? What do you think about the "velvet" manicure, love it or loathe it?
