NOTD: With Sparkle On The Top

Today's NOTD features one of my favourite nail varnishes - Barry M Peach Melba. It's a colour I come back to again and again, especially in summer. Feeling inspired by Gem, who does some lovely NOTDs on her blog Gem Seren, I decided to make it a bit more interesting and added glitter tips in a gradient style. For this I used Color Club Gingerbread from the Glitter Vixen Collection*, which is mainly gold but has some green and pink glitter thrown in for good measure.


I applied two coats of Peach Melba first and then a layer of Gingerbread roughly half way down the nail, followed by another layer a quarter of the way down the nail to achieve the gradient effect. I think this would look even better on longer nails (I just prefer mine short).





Barry M Peach Melba costs £2.99 from Boots or Superdrug. Color Club is an American brand, but a quick Google comes up with a few UK sites that sell the varnishes individually for £3.00.

What nail varnish do you always go back to?
