I wanted to do my nails a bit differently for Halloween and obviously the new Barry M Instant Nail Effects polish is perfect for that! When I dressed as a pirate I wore Barry M's Block Orange with the Instant Nail Effects polish over the top which looked really good. I think the polish looks better the more you practise with it as it's important you use quite a thick layer otherwise it looks a bit grey and doesn't crack well.
For this design I used the MissGuided Polish in MissCellaneous (that came free with this month's Cosmopolitan Magazine) as a base and then covered half of my nail in Barry M's Block Orange (301). I then covered the tips with Instant Nail Effects. I'm not sure whether I like this design or not but it looks ok for Halloween. I really like the effect that the new Barry M polish gives but I don't think i'd use it a lot when it's not Halloween. I also found that because it dries so quickly the rim of the bottle ended up gloopy and messy and I seemed to use a lot of the polish so if I use it regularly i'll probably end up having to repurchase it.
