How to NOTD: Barry M Chameleon Effects!

Hey girls! As promised, I have an in depth NOTD and tutorial on the new BarryM Chameleon Effects Nail Paints, for you today. I chose to do a sort of half and half design and I will be showing you step by step exactly how to recreate this.
These nail polishes basically change colour when you paint on top of them with a clear polish. So that you can easily create so many different designs. I think these are really cool and I was so excited to try them. I've never seen any other nail polishes like this before and it sort of reminded me of those colour changing felt pens I used to get when I was little.
I used the lilac shade. It is pale and silvery but changes to a darker, indigo, purple. They are also available in pink and blue shades. As you will see the application process is quick and simple. To make it even easier I would recommend using the BarryM clear nail polish or one a with a similar thin brush. The only thing that I don't particularly like is the fact that all of the shades are metallic and not very summery. I would have preferred a wider variety of shades with different finishes. 
Overall I do really like these nail polishes and I would give them a 9/10! They are available in Superdrug stores and online for £3.99.

What I used:

  • Collection 2000 Nail Care- 2 in 1 Base Coat
  • BarryM Nail Paint- 332 Chameleon Lilac
  • Barry M Nail Paint- 54 Clear
Always start with a base coat to protect your nails.

Paint your nail as normal and wait for them to dry.

Repeat Step 2 for a second coat.

Using a clear nail polish, vertically paint half of your nail. (I did this freehand but you could use tape to be more precise)
Repeat Step 4 on all of your nails.
