Nail Art: Dripping Nails

After having an exceptionally productive Friday off- an early morning trip to the gym, a good clean of the entire house, 2 loads of washing and a couple of job applications- I decided to paint my nails for the weekend! Tomorrow I’m heading south for the Jubilee weekend  and I am so excited! I plan to paint something very patriotic on my nails on Monday, while I eat red, white and blue cake and watch Gary Barlow on the telly because I am so British! Best get the bunting out!

Nail Art: Pastels With a Twist

Nail Art: Pastels and Spots

Sorry about the poor pictures- I am just not a great photographer!

My Mid Week Outfit- and Other Things….

So after feeling very nervous about finally visiting the hairdresser after a year long absence… I decided to just have a trim. BUT, on the plus side, I also got to try out heated rollers- they are amazing and I will be buying some when I get paid! (Along with the million other things I need/want to buy!)

These are my must haves for my March pay packet- nothing to extravagant as I’m trying to save up!!

These pastel jeans are from Topshop, and I love, love, LOVE them. They’re only £25!!! A complete steal!

I am a teeny tiny bit obsessed with animal prints at the moment- the picture isn’t very clear (apologies!) but they are tiny little elephants! So cute! The shirt is from Asos, and is £35.

This is also from Topshop, and I have to confess I already have this dress in red, but I love this green colour so much! It is such a versatile dress too- you could dress it up with heels, or dress it down with a cute cardi!

I got so many compliments this afternoon about my nails- I think they might be my favourites!!

My outfit today was all about pastels! What do you think?

For once, the whole outfit isn’t from Topshop! The skirt is River Island, the shirt is Zara, the shoes are New Look, and the belt is Topshop (obviously, I couldn’t completely give up on them!) The charm is Disney Couture- I got it a few years ago and found it this morning lurking at the bottom of my make up bag!

Nail Art: Leopard Print with Pastels

I finally got around to testing out my new nail art brushes. Even though I have about as much artistic ability as a rock, I found it surprisingly easy to do my first animal print. They definitely aren’t perfect, but I’m proud of myself anyway!

I chose pastel colours because it’s so dull outside, and after reading this months Glamour magazine, I have a feeling pastel shades will be here to stay throughout the Spring season.

I started out with  a base coat, and then applied two coats of Barry M nail paint in Peach Melba. The blue spots are also Barry M, in Blueberry. I’m not sure how durable Barry M will be, as they were very, very cheap! The black is J17 polish in Nightshade, though I’ll probably invest in a better one at some stage!

Let me know what you think- and I’m in need of suggestions for my next attempt too!!!
