A Huckleberry Nail

One of my main blogging 'enablers' is Laura from Buy Now, Blog Later I absolutely love everything about her style and so tend to pay attention to what she is currently sporting. So it was no surprise that I took notice when I saw her wearing an on trend pale pastel blue nail in this post. She was actually wearing an Essie version but my local Boots store was out of stock so off I went around the aisles to find a dupe.

It looks like Rimmel and L'Oreal currently have a range of pastels out; Rimmel with the Rita Ora range and L'Oreal with their Perfection Color Riche Nails but again both were out of stock. 

Then I stumbled across the BarryM counter and they have a few perfect pastel shades in their Gelly High Shine range, which is already a formula I love. I instantly picked up Huckleberry in a bid to replicate the far more expensive Essie version.

I am really pleased with this polish although I think the pictures make it look a little brighter than it is because they have been taken in a blue room however, it is also definitely not a blue toned white. As usual with this formula a couple of coats gives a totally opaque, highly pigmented and glossy finish. Paired with a good base coat and Seche Vite top coat it is also long lasting.

The perfect shade for those looking to incorporate a spring pastel into their look. Has anyone else been loving pastel nails lately?
