Everyone knows I love nail varnish.
But sometimes I get a bit sick of just painting my nails one colour. So I was looking for a cheap way to jazz up my nails. I have wanted to buy the Models own nail pen for a while, so in absence of this, here’s a cheaper alternative. I had bought the BarryM nail effects a while back in a BarryM 2 for £5 deal. All I needed now was a gold nail varnish. This buy was harder to find than I first thought as no high-street brand had a gold nail varnish. I guess gold is not in any more, or was it ever ‘in’ ?
After traipsing around Woolwich for any store that sells make up of some sort. Eventually I found a small little shop that sells ‘Beauty UK – Glam Nails‘. I have never heard of it but they actually had a gold! Maybe not 100% the right colour but it had to do.
Wild Nails How To:
Clean, buff and file nails to suitable length. Paint your nails with a base coat so they don’t stain.
Next just simply paint your nails with ‘Beauty UK – Glam Nails Gold’ nail varnish. Wait for that to dry and you will most likely need another coat.
Grab your ‘Barry M Nails Effect Black’ and carefully paint over the gold coat. (Mine has gone rather thick and globby so i found this rather hard to make look good.) DO NOT paint over it again it wont work! Wait until the nail effects varnish has cracked over the gold varnish.
Now clean up any bit of nail vanish that is around the nail, and paint a clear over coat, this should help it from chipping. Then your done! Quick and easy.
This can take up 10 minutes so great for a night out. Such an easy way to give your nails a make over, and it’s very cheap. The gold nail varnish only cost me £1.99! Cheap as chips!
Got more time on your hands? Well at some point this month I will be doing another leopard print nail ‘How to’ which takes a little more time and effect, and also costs a little more.
Give the wild nail look a go for a £5 (which can be done again, and again and again…) who would ever want to go the salon again?
