Minty Confetti Nails

This is a quick look I did using the Barry M confetti effect nail paint that they released earlier on in the year.

I painted all nails with 2 coats of a mint pastel green shade.

To all nails except the ring finger I added a few coats of the confetti effect. This one is called Sour Apple and is made up of almost turquoise and yellow rectangular flecks. Like with some glitters there was a lot of ‘blobbing’ needed to spread it across the nail evenly. This nail effect nail paint reminds me of a cheaper version of the feather effect polishes by Nails Inc.

To the ring finger I added a single simple silver rhinestone to finish off the whole look.

I think the confetti effects are a nice alternative to using a glitter nail paint in a design, especially if you want something similar to glitter, but which is not sparkly. The only problem is that just like glitter it is hard to remove lol.

  1. That’s really pretty. I have both the Nails Inc and Barry M nail varnishes and they are pretty much identical, you definitely don’t need both. They are definitely a pain to remover though, but they look so pretty I just can’t resist wearing them.

    • yeah lol they are a right pain to get off, but it’s worth it :P.
      I do have the dolly mixture shade of these as well but haven’t got around to trying it out yet. I was thinking about using it for sprinkles in a cupcake design possibly.

      • I have the dolly mixture one as well and wore it over Essie’s navigate her, which created a lovely delicate look, but something I’d wear more in the spring. I think they’d look great as sprinkles on a cupcake design though, you should definitely try it!

      • Cool.
        Yeah I think I will go with the cupcake idea – you helped me make up my mind about it lol.
        One of the things I love about nail polishes that are “bits” of something in a clear base is that that are so versatile and you can put them over anything and get a different look each time.
