Black & White French Manicure

   Not long ago, Barry M introduced a set of textured nail effects which, like most new products by the brand, I immediately
snapped up. Unfortunately, I wasn't too impressed with the formula as it turned out to be too thin, and therefore the application of multiple layers meant it was slow to dry, and smudged easily.

   Fast forward a few months and I'm introduced to 'Invogue', a recently launched brand with products ranging from nail polishes to false eyelashes, all at a decent price. Their products are available to purchase from Oh Beauty, an affordable makeup stockist.

   Invogue have their own version of the aforementioned nail polish, called 'Matt Concrete Effect'. It has a significantly better formula which dries within one minute, and only needs two coats. I was really impressed with this, especially as it's from a new brand.

   As you can see in the photo above, I've created an unusual French manicure style nail art effect, using this polish with a Barry M nail art pen in white which I simply marked across the tip of the nail - it looks rather cohesive alongside my monochrome shirt!

   You can find Invogue's Matt Concrete Effect polish here (they also stock the same effect in bright orange!). Also, check out their suede effects - a great dupe for the OPI Suede Collection!
