Here's a little something for the weekend, I don't really see this as a work appropriate mani but its a little bit of fun :)
Introducing Barry M Nail Effects, I can imagine this will be very close to the forthcoming Black Shatter by OPI.
Its very easy to achieve this look, just one coat on top of your normal dry nail lacquer, the amount you apply and the speed at which you apply it will determined what type of effect appears on your nail.
This was one regular coat (by regular I mean I wasn't too generous and tried not to make it a thin coat) and I added a top coat to get a glossy, polished look as I tend to find it will dry quite matt looking.
For a more subtle look I am going to try a coat of black polish and then a coat of nail effects, to see if I can get that mixture of textures on the nail.
In case you are wondering, the polish I am sporting under the nail effects is Pamplona Purple, although it could easily be Barry M's Bright Purple no:303 as they are dead on dupes!
