This is Barbara Daly Denim from Tesco. It's a horrid steely blue.
(Oh, and it was pointed out to me that it was the Greeks who came up with ba ba ba barbarians. True true.)
Oo, thought I when in the shop, this is very like Barielle Falling Star. This is why I am a rubbish nail blogger. Because that is a garbage observation.
See the microscopic coral glitter in the BD? The BD is more sheer (no, be honest, watery) than I'd like so I got out a tiddly make-up sponge on a stick and did a bit of a sponge gradient. Which is harder than you'd think because the Barielle dried on the nail almost at once. I need to work on that because it would be a good look when done well with different colours.
Any tips on sponge manis? Leanne of Do Not Refreeze is an expert on this as I recall. See what I mean?
