Just a quick post today to share with you this gorgeous combination which I've sported on my nails today! 

I've really been loving the new Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints lately, especially the pretty pastel shades. I decided to use "Prickly Pear" which is a medium Lilac colour. It applied completely opaque with 2 coats, and dried (as the name suggests) to a very glossy, high-shine effect.

Models Own Snowflakes is a new purchase of mine, its part of the Wonderland Collection. I really love the effect of this polish, it has a clear base filled with irridescent foil flakes. It was a little tedious to apply and try and get an equal covering of the flakes, which I eventually gave up with. However the end result is so pretty, and it reflects all kinds of different colours in different lights! 

This is a perfect combination right now, especially as the weather was starting to warm up a little and everyone wanted "Spring colours" yet with a twist of Winter thrown in, as we seem to keep getting occasional flurries of snow! 

What do you think? Can you think of any other shades to go with Snowflakes?
