NOTD: Illamasqua Radium + Barry M Instant Nail Effects Black

I think my nails are psychic.  They were just screaming out for a stark contrast with some black crackle, and I was more than happy to oblige with a bit of Illamasqua Radium, a super bright acid green.  I'd not worn my black Barry M Instant Nail Effects in a while, and later that week, I found that there were blue and pink varieties available.  Perhaps my nails knew before I did.

Anyway, rambling aside, I love the sharp contrast between the acid green of Radium and the stylised black of Instant Nail Effects.  Radium drew a lot of comment on its own, and this manicure was even more noticeable - plenty of my workmates noticed it (which was a nice change, I usually have to wave my nails in their faces to get a reaction).

Illamasqua Radium* is available as part of the Toxic Nature collection, priced at £13.50, and Barry M black Instant Nail Effects costs £3.99, and is available at most Superdrug stores, and online at Barry M's website.  What do you think?  What are some of your favourite crackle combos?

  1. I think the harsh contrast works really well! I'm really eager to try out the new instant effects colours since I find the black one is often pretty harsh on the eye! x
