Blogmas Day 23: Nail Paints For The Party Season

nail varnish for the party season from barry m and models own

If you're anything like me when it comes to your nails, then you're constantly reapplying those nail paints; I just hate to have chipped varnish. It's a shame I can never get my nails to a decent length. It always seems like they're finally growing, then one breaks and the rest just give up too. Seeing as it's the party season, I thought I would share with you some of my favourite colours for the season. I never stick to one colour, and these are all such great colours to mix up.

The first 3 are part of the Barry M Jewel Glitter Collection. Rose Quartz Glitter has a clear base with pink hex glitter and micro holographic hex glitter. Pink Sapphire Glitter seems to have a slight pinkier toned base coat, with bright pink hex and micro glitter, and holographic bar glitter. They are both great to apply as a top coat, or layered as a light base coat. The last is Amethyst Glitter. This is a mix of purple, blue, gold and pink; the glitters combined make such a beautiful shade. This glitter is a lot more dense than the two above, so I wouldn't recommend using this on top of a colour, unless you want to layer it with a darker shade from the glitter.

Now for the coloured base coats. All of these seem to have a tonal, reflective effect so they will work with the range of outfits you'll be wearing this season. Pink Silver Glitter from Barry M is made up of rose gold, silver and pink micro-glitters mixed together to give a sort of foil effect, which I love. Now for my favourite, Mystic Mauve from Models Own. It's part of the Metallics collection and is a beautiful pinky/purply shade with a shimmery silver glittered tone. Another one of my favourites is Indian Ocean from Models Own. I absolutely love their Beetlejuice collection, which all consists of four pearlescent colours inspired by the wings of a beetle. Indian Ocean is a blend of lilacs, silvers and blues, all such vivid and shimmering tones. I was going through my nail paint collection a few weeks ago and realised I never had a gold. Shocking I know, so I picked up Gold Rush from Models Own, again a part of their Metallics collection. It's of course very similar to Mystic Mauve, but it's a lot more creamier. Can nail paints even be creamy? Smooth, we will go with smooth. It's still got a glittered tone, but it's stuck to just the gold shades.
