Nails Of The Week 37: Barry M Almond


Hey guys! I hope you are at that point on a Sunday where the chores are done, your bedroom is clear, and outfits are washed and dried ready for the week ahead. Or if you have only just emerged from your bed of hangover food, smudged eyeliner pillows and regrettable texts, then that's even better! I've had a mixed weekend of eventful vs. relaxing as I went to 1xtra Live last night with my bestie Melissa, which was seriously fun. We had a quick cocktail before heading to the arena where loads of acts took to the stage for bitesize sets, including Lethal B, Rozay himself: Mr Rick Ross, and legendary Mary J Blige, who was a total pro to close the show, wearing a leather crop top with jeans, looking all sorts of sassy. It was a seated show, probably due to safety, but the crowd was really hyped and a favourite part of gigs for me is seeing everyone turning it up a notch and looking great. For my fave look, I saw a really cute, structured circle skirt, almost prom style, in white with a matching mini cropped bralette and white sandals. Annoying I didn't get chance to snap my own outfit even for Instagram, but hopefully I'll end up wearing it again anyway. I wore Joni  Jeans and a silky Zara plunge slip top, with laced heels. Still liking wearing jeans out at night!

I've just changed my nails but these were my Milan holiday talons, and this colour is a serious challenger for my upcoming December nails. It's Barry M Almond from nailpolish.co.uk, and what a beautiful milky lilac it is! Very luxe, grey toned, but somehow it has the depth to suit gold as well as silver, and especially rose gold. I'm hoping to find a rose gold crop top to create my Christmas outfits around, and I have my work party and a friend's legendary birthday where all my friends gather each year, plus NYE, although I have no idea what will happen for that night! Other nail colours I'm considering are a super bright electric blue with a matte top coat, or going for the classic Christmassy gold metallics. Any ideas? Does anyone else give this as much thought as me?!
