About a month ago we were contacted by Barry M to let us know that March is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month. The reason Barry M were the ones telling us about it is that they're teaming up with Ovacome to run their annual #tealtips campaign again this year. The idea is that by wearing Gelly Nail Paint in Greenberry, we’ll get women and girls like you talking about the Ovarian cancer symptoms you should be looking out for. Throughout the whole of March they’re also donating 50% of proceeds of each £3.99 purchase (from barrym.com only) to Ovacome!
We are well aware that we've been absolutely sh*t bloggers during March and although this has been at the top of our to do list, we've only just made it with a couple of days to spare! We don't do a lot of french tip designs as they're really hard to get right. With such a simple design precision is key. As you can see from today's images, precision is something I lack!! I even used template stickers for this and they're still wonky, how is that fair?!
Greenberry is one of our favourite shades so I decided that I wanted it to be the sole star of the show and went for a naked nail. I often fall our with naked nails or negative space designs, however, with today's mani I found the key - matte topcoat. The matte finish smooths out any imperfections on the nail and makes it look as though you're not wearing any polish.
Although I'm not a massive fan of this it did turn out better than I expected and I'm loving the contrast of the Greenberry against the naked nail bed. The pinky is my favourite finger, I think it worked best due to it's shape, the others are a bit too wide and fat. Also, apologies for the highly edited photos this weather has been destroying my cuticles recently and they need some serious tlc!
If you haven't already caught up on Barry M's #tealtips campaign, or the message from Ovacome make sure you check them out and get talking ladies!
