You can read all about it here (Yu puts it better than I ever could..!) but needless to say, we both purchased some new Barry M nail paints - it would have been rude not to!
First up to try....
Barry M Peach Melba
Peach Melba was on my nail varnish wish list and it does not disappoint. A supposed dupe for Illamasqua's Purity, it is gorgeous creamy peach that looks almost nude in some lights but neon in others. The application was a little streaky - nothing to really moan about - and whilst two coats would have been plenty, I opted for three to ensure a perfectly smooth and opaque finish.
Unfortunately my attempt of duping Seche Vite with China Glaze's fast dry topcoat is not really working out. It is nowhere near as fast and as you can probably see in the picture, it recedes on the tips even when I cover the free edge. Any recommendations for a fast drying top coat that works - with no health side effects - would be really appreciated!
