Denim and Silver Swirls

I hope everyone is having a good week so far but if you are anything like me you will already be looking forward to the weekend.

There was no particular inspiration for todays manicure however I loved how it turned out and hope that you enjoy the pictures too.

I started with two thin coats of Barry M Denim. This definately has the ability to be a one coater and I will be using it for stamping later in the week to put that theory to the test. Denim dries to a matt and slightly uneven finish but as I always use plenty of top coat so it does not cause me any complaints.

I stamped this swirly circular pattern with Barry M Silver Foil and a pattern taken from Konad plate M65. I usually steer clear of these types of patterns as they can look a little samey but I am so glad I gave this a go. I loved how it kept catching my eye at work today.

As you will see from the bottle shots below, Denim actually contains micro particles of silver glitter and whilst its not stand out obvious on your nail you can definately see it in certain lights and just makes the silver foil used for stamping even more complimentary.

This is a great mani to fall back on in a hurry as Denim can easily be a one coater and these foil polishes dry super quick. Pretty little time savers :-)
