Barry M and Bora Bora Navajo Nails

These navajo nails were actually inspired by Emma. I loved her navajo mani back in summer and couldn't resist creating my own design! You can see Emma's mani hereI started with a base of Barry M - Almond* from the Spring Gelly collection. I then drew the navajo design onto two nails using a Barry M black nail art pen. I wanted to add a splash of colour so picked out four more Barry M polishes - Bikini*, Greenberry, Berry Ice Cream and Pink Flamingo, and added them into the gaps!

I decided not to go navajo on all the nails as I am in love with Models Own - Bora Bora so wanted to incorporate it somehow. I added a thin coat of Bora Bora over the remaining three nails so the Almond* still comes through from below. Adding a glitter top coat is a really cute way to liven up a mani without going all out! Finally I finished it off with a matte top coat - again, loving matte over glitter at the moment, such an interesting look. 

I know these are fairly summery, but I refuse to put all my bright colours away for winter. We need something to cheer us up on these dark miserable days! I say yes to brights all year round!
