Illamasqua Scarab + Barry M Instant Nail Effect Gold Foil

Afternoon all

Hope you've had a spectacular weekend! Today I have my attempt at a Halloween mani. It was also a good opportunity to try out Barry M's new Instant Nail Effects Gold Foil. First I needed a vampy nail colour base. Hello Illamasqua - Scarab.

Then I used a Bundle Monster plate with the Barry M Gold Foil. The cobwebs were a little tricky, with some of the design not transferring properly.

Scarab is gorgeous! 2 coats here. It's the only Illamasqua polish I own. Got that gorgeous glowy effect that I love. Got it off Ebay for about £6.00. The Gold Foil stamps okay, better than Gosh Gold. I thought It was going to be rubbish, as the reviews haven't been positive. I haven't yet tried the Silver Foil, but might give it a go soon.  

Barry M Instant Nail Effects is available at Boots and Superdrugs for £3.99. Superdrugs are currently running a 3 for 2 mix and match here.
Enjoy your Halloween!

    @Linsey I've got my eye on Viridian and Baptiste...and also Poke. Actually lots of their polishes. I love their concepts too, really imaginative.

  5. Great combination! Looks like that Barry M stamps pretty darn well.

  6. such a gorgeous colour and i love the spider detail!

  7. I really want to get Scarab, I have Viridian but can never seem to find this one! The colour you used for the spider is perfect with this.


Thank you for your comments, I appreciate every single one of them :-)
