a big RAWR to the BarryM Instant Nail Effects giveaway winners!

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 11 - 2010

Completely inspired by Kellie at BigFashionista, I had a go at applying the BarryM Instant Nail Effects over Models Own 25 Carat Gold to get a more feline interpretation!

Close up… it’s not that leopard print-y, but from 3 feet or further, it works REALLY well!

This stuff really is nail art for the completely unartistic (i.e. me!)

But enough of all this!

Who are my two lucky winners from this weekend’s giveaway?

The gods over at Random.org have spoken… and I’m pleased to announce that…



… are the lucky winners, I shall email you this evening for your addresses ladies!

Thanks for entering everyone, with over 180 entries in 48hrs, I can’t tell you how much I wish I could afford to give away more bottles.  Instead, I shall wish you all the bestest week ever xx

    Looks awesome over gold! I hesitated over a bottle in the shop because I wasn’t sure how often I’d wear it/which colours I would wear it over but if I’d seen this before I went I would definitely have bought some! might have to rectify the situation today. :-) xxx

  2. Jess says:

    I agree, this is nail art for the unartistic! This leopard look is great, I was thinking of trying a ‘zebra’ look.


  3. Ann says:

    OMG, your nails are totally Art Deco, and they look awesome!

  4. Enigma says:

    That does look quite good actually! I really hope my boots / superdrugs gets it in. I couldnt even see any gaps where they might of sold out of it either.

  5. Catriona says:

    I wore mine over a pale metallic colour (Toasted Almond by 17) and it looks great! I think it’s the metallic vs matt that helps it look so good and it was much more subtle than your one!

  6. Estelle says:

    Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so happy! I’m so sad, I wanted this so much I was even boring my boyfriend about this yesterday! Thank you soooooo much!!!! Mwah mwah mwah!xxx

  7. Estelle says:

  16. I love the effect!! This is one of the best combos I’ve seen with that cracking nail polish! :)

  17. Megan says:

    Thank so much for your post on Barry M Instant Nail Effects. I’ve popped out in my lunch hour and bought one and a coral polish colour! I read about Isadora Graffitti Nails on Jangsara’s blog and I have been searching high and low for them. I’m so glad Barry M do a very similar product … hopefully, they will come out with more colours like the Isadora range.

    I’m fairly new to your site and I must say, I absolutely love it! It is great to read a blog from a UK girl with oproduct reviews that I can purchase in this country!!!
