Manicure Monday #13

I missed Manicure Monday last week but I'm back and this time with some nail art. I got all four Barry M nail art pens for Christmas and after the exciting reviews I've seen around at the beginning of last year I couldn't wait to dive in and have a play. I found inspiration online and created some simple, easy-to-do bows and I'm mega pleased. I couldn't catch them at there best due to bad lighting (it was dark when I took these photo's), they do look really nice and I'm so impressed with these nail art pens - so impressed I can't believe I didn't get them sooner. I'm really hoping they bring some more shades out because I will pick them all up.

I used Barry M magnetic burgundy this is from the magnetic range, I used this without using the magnet the shade is just gorgeous but I only have half the bottle left due to a recent DIY moment. I then used fairy dust from the Kardashian Beauty range to fill in the bows and for detailing I of course used the Barry M nail art pen in black. 


  1. That's So pretty! I'm really pleased, I asked my best mate to get me one of them for xmas, not totally sure what bits he got me off the list of possibilities but if he didn't pick this I'm definitely going to pick one up, they look great.

    That red is just Stunning too! You did a great job xx

    1. Thank you. I was really pleased. They looked so much better in person.

      I hope your friend does give you the chance to try at least one but if not they are definitely a must buy. I'm going to review them better soon xx

  2. A very pretty look hun, well done, xoxo.

    1. Thank you, I'm really obsessed with the nail art pens at the moment xx
