NOTD/Tutorial: Black & Gold Glitter Fade with Barry M

As you can see this is quite a dramatic colour difference from the last NOTD post! I love this look and usually recreate it with slight variations at least once a month. Black nails on their own can sometimes be a little too harsh, so I like to add gold glitter to break up the colour. Today I've gone for a feature nail, but you can also do this look on all the nails too (which I love to do if I'm going to a party or a special occasion!). I think it would also look great with any other colour of glitter polish, or even with a different base colour if black is a little too dramatic for you. 

Here's a quick tutorial:

1. You want to start off with an undercoat to avoid staining you nails. Then paint your nails with a black nail polish with enough coats to make sure it's opaque - I use Barry M Nail Paint in NP47.

2. Next you need to paint the tip of your nail (like you would for a French manicure) with a gold glitter polish - I use Barry M Gold Glitter Nail Paint (NP339). You could even finish the look at this step if you fancy a twist on the classic French manicure! 

3. Now you need to wipe the brush clean and lightly spread the glitter polish from the tip down to about 1/2 to 3/4 of the nail. Finally dab a little more glitter polish at the tips of the nail, allow to dry, and finish off with a thin layer of your favourite top coat!
                                                                                    

Do you like black and/or glitter nail polish? 
Would you ever try a look like this?

  2. I love the gold onto of the black! I tried out some glitter gradient nails before but didn't think of putting a colour underneath.
    Thanks for sharing!

  7. I love them! You have such beautifully shaped nails, too. My boyfriend would go batshit for these - he's a huge Saints fan, so black & gold everything is the way to go!
