Strawberries and Cream NOTD

After having a really positive response to my previous simple nail art looks (bubbles, Midnight Sparkles,Strawberry Libertine and Glittery green gradient)
I thought I’d post one more which absolutely everyone can do and takes barely any time at all!
I apply two coats of Rimmel’s Strawberry libertine
Once it's dry apply a swipe of Barry M White nail effects in the corner.
Up close I think this looks quite pretty but it’s more when you catch a glimpse of it or from far away where it somehow looks really lovely.
I've got both the black and the white nail effect polishes & I've been figuring out a few different ways to wear them however this is by far my favourite!
Hope this has been helpful!! x

P.S I’ve got a new header and favicon (the little icon you see next to the web address) & I know I’ve changed my blog’s look a hundred times but I think I’m finally happy – what do you think?

This is one of my favorite looks! Maybe because it also inspires me to eat strawberries and cream :-) xoxoxoo

@Amy & NRC glad you like this enough to actually wear it!

@cerina I definately think this just looks prettier than doing it all over your nail :)

Krystal said...

i like your header! i'd change my blog around a lot, i have before, but i'm taking a break, haha :)

Beautyshades said...

This is pretty. I did one similar a while ago but I used purple. It looks in my opinion very elegant:)

Radiant Make Up said...

@Krstal thank you, I'm always tweaking things. Even when I say I'm having a break and leaving it alone there's always something I change!

@Beautyshades thank you, I've been wearing the crackle polishes like this for ages on tons of different colours and pink and purple are my two favourites to use this over :)

Thanks for commenting!! x

Bonnie said...

This is a really good idea. I have so many effects and shatter polishes now, but I always wear them in the same exact way. It's nice to have options!
