As the colours used for this design are purple and gold they remind me of royalty colours and Cadbury’s Chocolate packaging lol. Hence the title choice.
This look was quite easy to create, yet I think it looks really effective. I think it would look especially good for the party season this Christmas.
I also felt it would be the perfect use for the new limited edition Christmas Gold nail paint by Barry M that I picked up from Boots last week.
I painted all of my nails with Barry M’s Gelly nail paint in Blackberry. I love this shade of purple. After this was dry I sponged the gold nail paint onto the tips using a makeup sponge.
I think the sparkly gold glittery foil effect goes really well with the shiny boldness of the purple. However I think a couple of the nails could have done with a bit more of the gold concentrated onto the very end of the tip to give it a bit more coverage.
I find that the current colours of the gelly nail paint are all quite bold. This makes them good choices as the base for nail art, which you can then add more fancy nail varnish to the top of. This prevents things form getting too busy.
What do you think of this look? I would love to see what else people have done with the limited edition nail paints.
