HARD CANDY Beetle meets Barry M ….
Last night I spammed the living daylights out of you all with my post on Hard Candy Beetle.
Well, believe it or not, Beetle can get better. On a rare Saturday shopping trip into town, I picked up the new Barry M crackle, Purple Rain. I bought it cos the colour reminded me of CG Let’s Groove, and was less “bright” than by CG purple crackle.
Well … well well well. When I put in on, I kinda GULPED! Can you BELIEVE how amazing this looks ? There is something in the browny tone of the purple that just joins in holy matrimony with Beetle. Scrumptiousness!!!
The crackle itself was also to die for. Went on easily, shattered beautifully, and left this lovely dusty kind of look in its wake, like footprints in in the dirt. I was scared a top coat would ruin it, so left it all matte, which allowed Beetle to shine all the more.
Just for fun, I then did the other hand with my trusty CG black crackle, Black Mesh, and altho it looks cool, the Barry M knocks its socks off.
I can see me digging Beetle & Barry out lots in the next few months – don’t they just look like they were MADE to be together ??
Lol. Enjoy J
Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
