Nail art threesome: One Nail to Rule Them All

Alice of One Nail to Rule Them All and Allie of Brit Nails and I have had a Whatsapp conversation going for years now. They’ve kept me sane when blogging (and non-blogging life) has been driving me up the wall. They’re a great sounding board, and wonderful friends. So who better to have a threesome with?

Barry M Speedy Nail Paints

I’ve been told that these polishes have taken a while to produce because of UK regulations for quick dry ingredients, but I’m glad that Barry M finally have a quick dry range to add to their ever growing array of nail polish!
