barry m matte nude vanilla polish
I have to admit I've never been a huge fan of matte nails.
I didn't realise that I'd accidentally picked up a matte polish when I bought this, I was slightly disappointed but thought I'd give it a try. 
oh boy... I love it!! 
I think nude nails really suit this effect, I added some accent studs at the cuticle to dress it up a notch and I'm super happy with the result... yippee! I do find it strange not to apply a top coat which meant they didn't last as long as normal but this polish dries so quickly that I'm happy to use this one again. 
I'm pretty happy with my accidental purchase after all.. are you a fan of matte look nails?

  2. This looks great and I love the nude shade you've used. I'm quite pale and find I stay away from nude nails as they make my hands look even paler, but I am tempted to go and have a look at this shade in Boots now! I really like Barry M nail varnish so I'll probably end up buying it!

  11. I have tried doing matte nails in the past, and I wanted to like it but I cant.
    It just feels too unfinished without a glossy top coat!
