Some seasonally inappropriate nail art with Barry M

I’ve always worn dark colours in spring and summer, so why not post some abstract citrus nail art in November? Why not, exactly! And when it’s exclusively made up of Barry M polishes, you can’t really go wrong.

Starting with a base of ‘Coconut’ I painted the tips white, and used a striping brush to do a stripe in ‘Block Orange’ and ‘Mango’. Then using a dotting tool I dotted three spots in ‘Mango’ on each nail and then used a brush to turn the dots into tear drop shapes. Then a couple of dots with ‘Matte White’ and ‘Block Orange’ to finish it off.

Granted it’s not the most perfect example of nail art, but I kind of like that it’s so seasonally inappropriate! Am I alone in wearing summery nail art when autumn seems to finally be setting in?

    That is so cool! I’d never have the patience to do every finger, but one or two on each hand would do me!

    That sounds like a lovely cocktail! Mango juice, coconut, bit of white rum, dash of orange juice. Yum! Caribbean here we come…
    The nails look great too, obviously! Haha! :)
