Green Glitter - My Bonfire Night mani

Just a quick post to show the glittery green mani I wore over the weekend to my family's annual bonfire night party.


It's two coats of the awesome Barielle Date Night with two coats of Nyx Lime Sparkle. I really like how this turned out and couldn't stop looking at my nails. As ever, click for *really* big pics but don't look too close at the cuticles - my hand cream/cuticle oil/lemony flutter habit has uninhabited itself.

I'm sure most folk reading this will already be aware of Date Night but for the uninitiated, Date night is a fantastic emerald green shimmer that Barielle released in 2008 as part of the Fall Affair collection. I was lucky enough to find these in a CVS when I was in the US earlier this year. It applies flawlessly, dries fast and is opaque in 2 coats.

NYX is another US brand but this one I picked up on my cheapie haul the other weekend. It was one of the most expensive cheapies at £3.30 but totally worth it.

Unfortunately over the weekend my middle fingernail (which I was patching with a succession of silk wraps & ibd - if there's a way to make them last longer than 24hrs I need to know?!) broke off completely and I haven't got the heart to file all the others down to match.
