If you haven’t heard of Nailberry already, keep on reading because this brand is new, and exciting!
Nailberry launched just last year by French beauty addict and salon owner Sonia
Hully. It has already become a favourite amongst celebs, nail techs and beauty know-alls whilst also winning Best Nail Polish Brand at the Beauty Shortlist 2014. Not bad for a newcomer!
With 30 plus fashion forward colours all free from Formaldehyde, Toluene, Dibutyl and synthetic camphor it’s a must have for beauty geeks who care about what goes into to the products they use. Making sure they tick ALL the right beauty boxes, they are also cruelty free too!
When I first saw Nailberry, I thought it would be yet another small “luxury” brand that looks pretty in the bottle but does nothing on the nails. So many of them lack colour pay-off, are streaky and just don’t last, but Nailberry came up trumps. The colours are beautiful, highly pigmented and streak free. They last a good few days without a top-coat and are lovely and shiny. My favourite collection has to be ‘The Must’ collection, made up of deep, dark, berry reds. I can’t wait to use these come the Autumn.
All polish colours are available to buy at £13.50 from Nailberry or you can discover one of three pink shades within The Hip & Healthy Summer Glow Box, including Pink me up, Pink Berry and Groseille.
I decided to knock up a quick tutorial using two of these beautiful pink shades, Pink me up and Pink Berry, as well as the shade Bubblegum. If you have half an hour to spare, give it a whirl. It’s fun, and um, a pretty mess!
You will need:
– 3 Nailberry polishes
– Nail Polish Remover
– Bowl of cold water
– Dotting tool or toothpick
Step 1: Prep your nails and apply a clear base coat
Step 2: Taking your first polish, drop a small amount off the brush into the cold water.
Step 3: Moving fairly quickly, do the same with the remaining colours.
Step 4: Use a dotting tool or toothpick to move the polish around.
Step 5: Place your finger or thumb into the bowl underneath the polish and lift up.
Step 6: Using a Q-tip soaked in polish remover, wipe away excess polish.
Step 7: Apply topcoat.
For the nail art extras, accessories and tools I use in my tutorials I recommend www.sparkly-nails.co.uk – the range they have is incredible and very affordable so you can stock up on all your nail art bits and pieces.
