Guys, girls, everyone, I couldn't believe that I totally forgot about my Barry M pink nail art pen *cries* I feel so guilty!!

To make up to my negligence, I paired up with Barry M Espresso, a black matte, ONE COATER polish. In light of the upcoming V-Day, I decided to do something related since the pen is in pink color.

I then goolged for Tattoo Ink font as a reference for my letters L-O-V-E. 


I then followed the font really closely using the pen. The Barry M Nail Art Pen is really easy to use. However, you do have to take note that when drawing onto the nail, you will have to draw in a stippling motion, otherwise the color does not show off opaque.


I added a layer of G&G HK Girl Top Coat, which is glossy then adding a matte top coat, Essie - Matte About You over the whole design. I have a love-hate relationship with Matte About You. It does it's job with fascinating matte finish, however there are white bits that are left on my design which I find very annoying. 

I have tried to clean the bottle neck to prevent the white residue from falling into the top coat itself but to no avail :( What do you guys suggest I do? Should I go grap OPI's matte top coat too or would it be the same? Do let me know in the comments!

  1. This is so cool! Definitely reminds me of a chalkboard.

    If you're in the market for another good matte top coat, check out NYC New York Color's Matte Me Crazy! I don't know if you're able to get that over there, but it's pretty cheap over here. You might be able to find it online :)
