Nail of the Day: Pink Mermaid Tears

Monday, 15 July 2013 10:00

   Today's nail combination features a mixture of Barry M's Summer Limited Edition Neon Pink as a base and Models Own's 'Mermaid Tears' as a top coat. The Barry M pink base glided on and only needed two coats on one or two nails, another example of just how brilliant Barry M's nail polish formula is. I love the shade and it looked gorgeous on it's own too, so summery and bright!

   The Models Own 'Mermaid Tears' is part of the 'Splash' collection, featuring an extremely sheer blue-lilac base and gleaming shards of iridescent glitter. In the bottle it looked beautiful, but unfortunately I don't think it transferred onto my nails quite as beautiful. I tried it on its own originally and it looked like I had no nail polish on, just one or two shards of random glitter- I wasn't impressed! It looks much nicer over the Barry M pink, but was still so difficult to apply. It went on lumpy and left a messy finish which you can kind of see in the picture. I think the end result looked okay, but I couldn't help being a little disappointed!

What do you think to this combination? Have you tried any of the Models Own Splash Collection?
