You know what...I sorted these pictures out when I got home from work, and I've only just realised I didn't actually post them.  I think the heat's finally gotten to me.  That being said, we were in a lovely air-conditioned room today - it was heaven!  The room was built for doctors, rather than lowly physicists like us, so it was rather swish.  And there was free lunch, which never fails to make me happy :)

Anyhoo, two weeks ago I was walking home from the train station on a Saturday morning, so obviously I had to pop into Superdrug and buy four nail polishes.  One of those was my first Barry M Gelly, in Guava.  I popped it on the other day, since it seemed suitably bright for this fabulous weather we've been having!  It's like seriously super bright.  And for some reason, I just kept thinking it needed a bit of bunting...


When swatches of these were first posted, the Crumpet commented on how hard it was to capture the colour of this polish.  I couldn't help but think "yeah right, it's not like it's purple!".  But seriously, I can't believe how much this is not the colour of the polish.  It is bizarre.  I was taking pictures and just looking at the images on my camera baffled!  It sort of leans a little more teal, but isn't teal at all...  Just buy it and find out!

So then I added the bunting using the Barry M Nail Art Pen in White, filling it in with Barry M Peach Melba and Mint Green, Nails Inc Grosvenor Street, and Rimmel Sunshine.

I want more bunting!  I'm trying to think what other designs I could combine it with to create summer fete skittles :)


  1. This is wonderful, perfect for summer! The colours are so cute together. Such a shame that the colour was hard to photograph, I hate it when that happens! Looking forward to seeing more of your bunting!
