#PartyPolished Nail Bloggers Competition - Barry M and Bon Prix

A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from the guys at Bon Prix asking if I'd like to take part in a nail art competition in association with Barry M.

Readers of my blog and followers of my Instagram will know by now that I am a big Barry M fan, and my collection of their nail polishes extends to the hundreds. Obviously, it was a nobrainer to take part.

The brief was simple; create a nail art design using one of six Bon Prix as inspiration. The winner of the competition would receive a £50 Bon Prix voucher as well as £47 worth of Barry M goodies. Completely disregarding where I would actually house any 'goodies', I started studying the dresses and coming up with an appropriate design.

I chose the 'Luxe Sequin Shift Dress'(below). It's a black dress (though it does also come in red), and features turquoise sequin flowers all over. A great sparkly number for the festive season!

I created my design using some of the Barry M products below;

I actually created two designs; the first was a gothy style with turquoise accents but at the last minute I decided I didn't like it - so did something else.

For my design I used Aqua Glitter, Guava, Teal, the silver nail art pen and of course my clear topcoat. I chose the real colour base as I thought it would really pick out the flowers in the dress. 

Guava is one of my favourite shades from the Gelly range so that was used as a base, with the Teal and glitter used on one side. I liked that this was slightly more subtle than a completely glittery nail - and you can't go wrong with a bit of everything! There are some silver sequin flecks on the dress, so I tried to pick this out with some silver dots to highlight the divide between the two polishes on the nail. 

And here's the final product!
