It's like gold dust


This was my polish of choice for Christmas day - Barry M Nail Paint in Goldmine. This is a mixture of small pieces of gold glitter surrounded by a black varnish. I thought this was the perfect Christmas combo, glittery but not too bright - I'm not a massive fan of bright nail colours, I tend to go for dark purples/reds/blues/black etc.

The black varnish under the pieces of glitter is quite thin, so I applied a plain black base coat in order to get a good solid colour. I did find that this varnish peeled quite quickly the first time I used it, however I think this might have been down to the crappy base coat I used, as Barry M varnishes are usually pretty good! 

Have you tried this nail varnish? What was your nail colour of choice this Christmas? x

P.s. it's my birthday on Tuesday so I'm having my birthday celebrations this weekend. Josh has planned a surprise for me on Saturday, I'm so excited! I'm sure you'll see a post on here after the weekend :) x

    this nail varnish is beautiful Im a black blue and purple fan too (it's rare you find my toes anything but black polish) and Christmas I used one of those magnetic garnishes in a dark blue . I love it but as it said to only use one coat it didn't last long
