No7 Speed Dry Nail Colour in Hot Pink
Barry M Instant Nail Effects

So I'm pretty sure that many of you have tried this miracle - its circulation in the bloggging world is c-razy - but I just wanted to show you some I made earlier. I'm not normally a bright-pink-kinda-gal but decided a bright colour underneath would work best. I'm so happy with the result, even if I did slightly mess up the thumbnails, because it looks like some fancy nail art that took a considerable amount of time, which of course it didn't.

And I always knew I had stubby fingers but I swear that they're not normally this stubby. Maybe I should have made them skinnier on Photoshop, no?! Ha.

Has anyone else given these a go? What's your experience been like?

  5. I love it! Im still trying to perfect a technique, I keep overlapping it. But Im getting there! I agree that a bright colour looks best underneath.

  6. I am awful at putting nail polish on but practice makes perfect. That effect looks really cool and I like the bright colour it makes it stand out more :)

  7. I bought this a while ago, yet I've only actually used it once! I love it when I see it on other people - I've seen it on so many blogs, & it always looks so cool & it looks ace on you, with the bright pink - but I just really wasn't sure on me. Just didn't look.. right. Annoying!
    Maybe I should give it another go, with some different colours.. Give it a fair trial & all!

  11. I love this stuff too - I find the best colour for me underneath is a dark red, it's subtle but you can still see it!

  19. I did it too! But instead of pink I took a bright green and as the graffiti colour I used also black. The result was: crazy monster nails which looked absolutely terrific!
