RuPaul's Drag Race Inspired Nails feat. Barry M Speedy Polishes

So here's where the excuses come in.  I know that it's been over two weeks since my last post and for that, I am sorry.  Uni has been uber hectic lately with a big hand in date at the start of this week so I have been working away on that most of the time (even on weekends when I usually do blog stuff) but now since its handed in I hope I can blog a bit more (I still have differentiation to do so I'll be prepping for that next week) but sure, enough of my moaning, onto the nails!

This week saw the series finale of the latest series of RuPaul's Drag Race and although a few Drag Race fans (like myself) thought a certain contestant whose name begins with a K should have been in the top three, I was happy with the choice of winner (no spoilers here HUNTY).  So to celebrate the finale I thought some simple nail art was in order since I STILL have the new Summer Speedy shades by Barry M to swatch, I thought it was a match made in heaven (Speedy polishes + Drag Race DUH)

So the main polishes in this mani are Get Set Go* (a hot salmon pink) and Kiss Me Quick* (pastel pink) from the Speedy collection.  The base colour is two coats each and topped with top coat.  As with all quick dry polishes, you have to be quick if you want to work with them in terms of nail art but they weren't too bad, they're great as base colours for nail art but maybe not the best for detailing.

I wanted to use elements of the logo for the show and kind of replicate racing stripes but with a bit of flare, hence the curve of the design.  For my accent nail, I wanted a bit of bling, which is something I don't normally do but its nice to try different things from time to time.

Hopefully I'll have more from the Speedy collection over the next few weeks, as well as the rest of the new summer releases from Barry M.  The Speedy polishes are £3.99 and available from Boots, Superdrug and Barry M's website.
