Day 8 of the 30 Day Challenge: Metallic nails & GIVEAWAY!

Posted on: September 8th, 2012 by shewhodoesnails  17 Comments

It’s Saturday! Hooray! Unfortunately however, I was wide awake at 6.30 this morning which I guess is what you get for waking up stupidly early every day for work.

Today the theme is ‘metallic nails’ so I thought today would be a great day for a new giveaway!

If you’ve been following my blog over the last few weeks, you will have seen that I’m quite keen of Barry M’s Foil Effect Silver, especially for stamping designs onto my nails! Well, as I haven’t used this polish as just a plain coat before, I decided that is what I would do for today’s nail post :)

Barry M Foil Effects Silver – indoor with flash


Barry M’s Foil Effects Silver is probably the closest colour I’ve seen to an actual piece of kitchen foil. It’s a lovely consistency and you only need one coat which is an absolute winner for me! My only complaint would be you can sometimes see the nail brush streaks on your nails, so I found myself going over the polish I had already painted if I had done a bit of a wiggly line.

As this is one of my favourite polishes at the moment I bought a second one to share with one of you, my lovely readers! The giveaway with be open for a week starting today and you can enter using the form below. You must like my page on Facebook (the form below gives you a little link) and there are several other ways to gain more entries into the pot. The more entries you have, the more likely you are to win :) You can come back every day and claim more entries for tweeting about the giveaway or sharing the giveaway on Facebook. Good luck!

  1. Hey!
    I have both of the Barry M foils but I am wondering if there are any other metallics you could recommend for stamping as the other one I have is a bit too runny :(
    It is not quite a metallic but I am loving my China Glaze ‘Fast Track’ from the Hunger Games collection – would definitely recommend trying out some china glaze polish.

  2. My favourite metallic polish is a dark purple color nail polish from a Korean Brand ‘Elianto’,i can’t really remember the shade name but it’s my current favorite right now :D

  3. My fav metallic at the moment (that I own) would be Finger Paint’s Figure of Art! One that I really like also (but don’t own) is Essie’s No Place Like Chrome! I didn’t see if this giveaway was international or not, since I’m in the US, you’ll have to disregard my entry if it isn’t.
