#UKTVShowcase

I am truly shocked at the amount of time that has passed since I last post. I can only apologise!!

It has been a very busy couple of months since starting my placement and sadly my nails have taken a bit of a back seat.

BUT

I’m back and keen to get creative once again, especially now the sun has gone in and we have been graced with huge amounts of rain in London.

Anyway, this week I decided to get on brand with UKTV!

On Tuesday 10th September we held our annual UKTV Showcase event at the Saatchi gallery. This was a fantastic opportunity for journalists to gain an understanding of the new commissions that will be coming up in months to come on the UKTV channels.

It’s safe to say that I had an absolutely amazing time! I got to mingle with the stars (namely shared a lift with Anthony Head and was told by Harry Enfield that I ran around a lot).

So, I thought I would go all out and do a fancy branded UKTV design on my nails!

The main colours I have used for this design are a Topshop pastel Blue, a standard white polish, Barry M silver glitter, Topshop blue nail art pen and black and white nail art pens.

I’m so glad I did these. They certainly became a talking point!

All that glitters

It’s been a while but I am back in full swing of painting my nails again!

Sequin Effect - Barry M

My love for Barry M continues as I had to purchase a nail paint from their lovely new range.

This is the white shade of their latest Sequin Effect range and I think it is really pretty. I have applied two layers as it is quite pale when first applied and I wanted a fair amount of sequins on my nails.

It’s also worth adding a top coat of clear polish to ensure that no sequins go astray.

Sparkle and Shine

I’m so bored of the sun not wanting to shine so I felt like brightening up my days with a bit of glitter on my nails. Fingers crossed this will make summer hurry up!

The main polishes used for this are Barry M red wine, red glitter, Topshop hidden treasure and a black nail art pen.

This is a nice and simple design and very easy to achieve. I always do a base colour for glitter polishes to enhance the bold colour.
