First up, you have to excuse the extremely bad paint job in the image above. Here's the thing: it was late. I was drinking wine. I was watching Gossip Girl. Out of the corner of my eye, I spied this bottle of Barry M nail paint sitting on my desk. "Why, now would be the perfect time to try this out!" I thought, before slapping it on with gay abandon, completely ignoring the fact that I was painting my SKIN as well as my nails. D'oh.
Now, I don't normally go for coloured polish on my fingers, mostly because I can guarantee that if I choose to wear some bright colour on my nails, I will immediately want to wear an outfit in an equally bright, but totally clashing colour.
This one tempted me, though, not just because the so-called "Goth" look is very much in fashion at the moment, and dark blue seems like a much easier option than black, but because it's such a pretty colour in itself, with a hint of glitter running though it.
The colour is called "Cobalt Blue", but it looks more like navy to me. I like it because it's dark and dramatic looking, but the aforementioned hint of sparkle helps to soften it up a little and make it that little bit easier to wear.
I had to remove this not long after I put it on, because it would've clashed horribly with my outfit the next day, so I can't comment on how long it lasts, but for £2.95 you can probably afford to find out for yourself.
