China Glaze - Frostbite topped with Barry M. - Jewel Britannia

Happy Monday gals,

I hope all of you had a great weekend! I did, even though it was pretty exhausting. On Friday I was officially awarded my PhD, which means I am finally done with studying (at least I hope so) and there will be no more exams in my life - ever. Yay! Needless to say I was pretty excited for this day to come. Preparations for the big party afterwards kept my quite busy throughout Wednesday and Thursday. I have never cooked such giant pots of soup before, but there were around 50 people that had to be fed. But in the end it was a great day, all of my family, friends and co-workers were there to celebrate with me. Sadly all these preparations kept me from blogging and painting my nails throughout this last week :( Initially I had planned to do a very special manicure for the ceremony, but I just didn't find the time to do it. I ended up going there with nothing but Nail Magic treatment on my nails. But now I have a few days off before Christmas, which means I will have plenty of time to play with Christmas designs, so stay tuned for that!

Today I have a manicure I wore earlier last week and that I liked a lot, so I wanted to share it with you. In my previous post I showed you China Glaze Frostbite, one of my favorite blue nail polishes for Winter. After two days, there was a bit of tip wear, but I didn't want to take it off. So I decided to layer Barry M. Jewel Britannia over it.

Barry M. Jewel Britannia is differently sized red, blue and silver glitter in a clear base. There are also some sparse holographic particles that add some extra sparkles to this glitter bomb. Working with this polish was easy, the base wasn't too thick and I got a fair amount of glitter onto my nails with one coat. The hexes also laid down nicely on the nails, which is always good ;) If there's one thing I cannot stand about glitter polishes, it's glitter particles sticking out of the nail and getting caught everywhere.
I can't even tell why I love the combo of red, blue and white/silver so much. I am not even British, lol. I just feel these colors go so well together. So special thanks to my fellow nail polish lover Hannah from PollyPolish! She got this beauty for me as a price way back for the Polish Olympics contest. I believe this is a limited edition and it is still available on the Barry M. website here.

That is it for today, thank you so much for stopping by!
