MSMD: Denim Nails


Now that my Halloween challenges are over, I can get back in the groove a little, and was excited to have time to do a Monkey-See-Monkey-Do Monday manicure again. In my awesome shipment of British polishes that my awesome friend Dina hunted down and bought for me, was a little denim gem--Barry M's Denim. This is a blue polish that goes on matte and looks like (you guessed it!) denim, so I figured it was time for me to do some denim nails of my own.

I've seen so many takes on denim nails that I can't really credit an exact one for my creation, but I do think the first time I saw someone do a version of them was this one here, at Konad Abuse. So I'm not going to re-do hers exactly, but do my own take on the denim nail concept. :)

I started out with--go figure--Barry M. Denim as my base color. Then I wanted to have stitching going around like each nail was a pocket, so I put white dashes around the edges with Sally Hansen White On. Then, I stamped on some yellow flowers with Sally Hansen lightning, and turned them into black-eyed Susans with black rhinestones in the middle (using Salon Express SE-19). I put little green dots around the flowers, but they don't show up that well in the pictures:

Seriously, how cool is that polish? It really is the perfect polish for hassle-free denim nails, and to wear any time you just want to match your jeans. For you ladies out there who aren't sure where to get this in the US, I believe you can find this shade, and some other Barry M's, at

Thanks for taking a look!
