2 coats of Barry M Nail Paint in 'Bright Red'

I recently won this in Leah's giveaway recently and thought the colour would be perfect for spring. Thank you again, Leah! :D

The red is a lovely, classic, blue-toned red, which would flatter everyone. It reminds me of a post box! As with all the Barry M nail paints that I have, it was easy to apply and was pretty much opaque with one coat. I did two just to be on the safe side. I've had it on for a couple of days now and have not experienced any chipping.

Since the weather has been absolutely delightful recently, I was inspired to do a spring/summery design on my ring finger. I settled for a strawberry, because it tied in with the red polish and I remembered seeing a strawberry nail design on Tumblr, which I thought was super cute. I used W7 'Spearmint' for the leaves/stalk (Because I didn't have a green polish...), Natural Collection 'Nail Whitener' for the seeds and covered it in a clear topcoat.
