Boosh and Lychee: Spots and Glitter

Good evening lovelies

Happy Tuesday. I had a fantastic day today - I was on a nail art course learning how to perfect some free hand designs using acrylic paints and also how to make some clever designs in gel polish before you cure it.

Unfortunately tonight I have to go away for work so will be travelling for about 2.5 hours to get to the hotel and hopefully get a good nights sleep before a couple of days of intense meetings. Luckily I have my fabulous little sister to keep me company which should distract me from how much I will miss Mr L_i_P_P and our doggies.

Onto my nail of the day...

For this eye catching manicure I started with a nice and simple Black and Nude polish combo. The glossy black is Illamasqua Boosh and the creamy Nude is Barry M Gelly in Lychee. I finally treated myself to three polishes from the latest Barry M releases.

Boosh applied like a glossy black dream and Lychee really is the perfect nude. I did two coats of each polish and was tempted to leave them looking that simple... of course the nail art bug took over :-)

Using my trusty Orly dotting tool I used Boosh to add some simple large and small dots to the two Lychee nails. It is the first time I have used different sized dots in this way and was really pleased with how effective they look.

Finally to add a bit of glitz I used Chit Chat Raspberry Glitter on just the black nails. I love black and pink together :-)

I was really pleased with this nail of the day and I am pretty sure you will see more dots like this very soon

  1. I really like this mani. I LOVe dots. :DD

  2. I have been looking those Chit Chat polishes in poundland for ages but was afraid that they are not very good but the raspberry one looks so lovely on top of the black. Added to my wish list now :D

  3. Wow the dotting is sooooo neat & perfectly round!!
