A Quick Barry M Doodle


I fancied having another play-around with my Barry M pen. 

I painted my nails with Greenberry Gelly. Once it had fully dried, I attempted a paisley design, starting from my index finger. Then I realised I was rubbish at drawing and being neat, so gave up after one finger! I just doodled and tried out different designs on the other fingers. I've realised that simple things like spots and stripes do tend to look better!

I think the pink is a little bit too see-through, and I used a too-bright base colour. Maybe over white it would have worked better!

This design has already gone (as I only did one hand!) and I'm working on something else for this week's challenge, that I'll post tomorrow. :-)


  1. I love these! I really like the paisley one actually... you are good at drawing so dont say your not :P

  2. Love the color combo! This is much better than my attempt at the pens

  3. I think the paisley looks really cool!! I bet it would have looked good as a full manicure :)


Please add a comment, I love to read what you think :-)
