NOTN: Barry M Gold Foil Effect With Glitter

As you may have seen me tweet or read on my Night Eyes: 'Humid' Eye Shadow By MAC post , last Friday was my offfice X-mas party. I wore my gold Celeb Boutique dress (you can read the post about it >> here) so decided to go with matching gold nails. I hadn't tried the Barry M foil effect nail paint since I bought it in October so thought it was high time I did.


To add extra glitz to the look I decided to put some glitter on the ring finger of each hand using some gold glitter I purchased on eBay a few months back. I know there are lots of glitter polishes out there but I thought it would be fun to use actual glitter to get the look (time consuming and messy, I know).

STEPS
1. I simply applied one coat (that's all I needed) of the Barry M polish on all my nails- doing the ring finger last; 

2. Then I sprinkled some glitter onto my ring finger before the polish dried;

3. Tapped off any excess glitter;

4. Let nails dry;

5. Finally I applied a top coat of some clear nail polish (I used my Rimmel 60 Seconds one) to set and protect the glitter. 
Have you tried Barry M's foil effect polish? What do you think of it? What nail looks will you be rocking during the festive season?
