I’ve been feeling pretty uninspired recently when it comes to nail polish. Don’t get me wrong, I still love nail polish and love looking at everyone else’s blogs, but I’ve been feeling kind of blah about my own. I realized I haven’t done any sort of nail art in a while. I’ve pulled out my stamping plates several times, but end up just pushing them aside…not feeling stamping right now. So when all else fails, just start dotting. To get me in the mood I chose Barry M Mint Green as my inspiration.
Mint Green is exactly what the name implies….a mint green. This is the third Barry M polish I’ve used and I have to say these are great polishes. They’re not sold here in the U.S , but you can purchase them through Harlow & Co. or if you have a friend in the UK maybe they can send you some Just don’t bother with Amazon because they all seem to be over priced when I looked. However, you might be able to find some decently priced on Ebay.
For my so called nail art I used Julep Kate (pearly white) and Color Club Age of Aquarius (turquoise) along with Barry M Mint Green. I didn’t have any real idea in mind, I kinda just dotted away on one nail and repeated it on the rest of my nails. The only part about dotting that I find to be hard is consistency. Other than that, if you’re not going for a repetitive pattern, dotting is great because you can just do whatever you feel like and it’ll probably turn out cute.
I’m kind of “whatever” about this mani. The dotting does make it more interesting, but its nothing special. I don’t hate it, but I’m not in love with it. It is what it is….
