NOTD - Marina And The Diamonds Inspired


I thought I would show you how I did my nails when I went to see Marina And The Diamonds on the 23rd May. I would of shown you my FOTD /OOTD however it was a very hot day and the concert was inside and going to be full of sweaty bodies, so I dressed appropriately in a vest and some leggings with gladiator sandals. I also kept my make-up simple and my hair up in a messy bun. 

As you can see from the picture below she does like to use anything glittery and her outfit are always unique. On the night she wore a poncho type dress with a large image of Bambi and Thumper on it. Then towards the end of the night she wore some red & white stripey dungarees that had mickey mouse all over them! 
 

So I thought I would keep with the sparkly glittery theme and paint my nails with copious amounts of glittery nail polish. Which I am sure I will regret when I try to remove it. 

I decided to use only Barry M as they seem to do the best glittery polishes that don't chip off. 
I used 2 coats of Red Glitter and then a thick coat of Hexograms, which I really do love. Unlike in the photos, it really does catch the light and gives off a Hologram effect. 

I am not really one for Nail Art or over the top nails but for some reason I quite like my nails like this. They still look neat and tidy and not too childlike!


As for the concert itself, I had a great time. She was even better than I thought she would be. However as I expected it was very hot and smelly in there towards the end!! But I would like to point out that I definitely wasn't adding too the smell of sweat! 

Ofcourse as usual I would love to know what you think. Do you like to wear glittery nail polish? Or do you think it is for teenagers only!
