I’m in love with teal, always have been even before I knew it had a name.

This Barry M ‘Water Mellon’ Nail Paint is a newer colour from their Gelly collection. It’s a gel nail polish that you don’t need to dry under a lamp and gives a very shiny, flexible but durable finish. For a couple of quid it’s a wonderful bargain!

I can’t wait to get my hands on the new silk pastels summer collection!

The nail jewels from Claire’s come in a little wheel containing various shapes and sizes. I thought I’d create a little flower bud and leaves with them for Spring.

    That looks amazing! I normally don’t wear nail polish very often, but this definitely tempts me an awful lot.

      Thank you! It’s the most durable polish I’ve ever worn, I’m well impressed.

    Yeah, I’m a teal lover too! I incorporate it whenever I can.

      It is so easy to incorporate into every occasion/setting. I put it with purple and gold quite a bit so it looks quite opulent.
