Blue Roses on Blue

Happy Weekend Lovelies!

As I mentioned earlier this week I wanted to experiment with Barry M Denim and use it for stamping. It was such a good one coater as a base colour for my Denim and Swirl manicure and as a general rule that means the polish will be great for stamping. I was not disappointed...

For this lovely manicure I started with a base colour of Models Own Beth's Blue. It is a gorgeous periwinkle blue creme and whilst I adore the colour I was a little frustrated with the formula. A touch on the gloopy side already which is a shame as it is a brand new polish.

For stamping I turned to one of my favourite floral designs - the large roses found on plate BM 323. I think these roses look great in Barry M Denim as the sparkle really shows through. I can see a real mixture of blue and silver sparkles which look gorgeous in any light.

Needless to say I love this manicure and I love that Denim is as great to stamp with as the Foil Effects collection also by Barry M. I think I could wear this rose stamp several times a week and not get sick of it - imagine all the pretty colour combos I could come up with :-)

Take care
