Home » Nails » Barry M » DUSKY MAUVE SPARKLE !


Hi all so i know ive been ages doing a post…well only a few days but ive been like soooo busy so please forgive me. I have a lovely set of pictures here that I took today for you all to see. I done my colleagues nail’s today for her as a treat and she absolutely loved the sparkle that I added. It’s really gorgeous and It looks fab with any kind of design or pattern that you do on your nails.

What I used

Base coat and top coat

Barry M nail paint – Dusky Mauve 313

BF (Beauty forever) nail polish – Sparkly 136

After I used base coat I painted the edges of the nails with the Barry m colour free hand.


Both hands have now been painted with 2 coats of the Barry m nail paint untill the colour isnt see-through


This is just another way of doing a french manicure instead of using the normal white colour.

The glitter varnish I used is packed with glittery stars, silver dots and sparkle. I tried to do a sort of pattern on the nails. On this hand I done alternate fingers with sparkle on the tips and the other fingers I done sparkle on the clear part. (I fished out stars and silver dots to form a pattern)

On the other hand i packed the sparkle on the clear part of the nails for a very intense sparkly look.


Close up of the nails and the effect of adding some sparkly nail art to the nails.

My friend loved the sparkle effect that the nail polish gave and also the Barry M nail paint. In fact everyone always loves all my Barry M nail paint’s that I wear…you cant go wrong with them really.
