NOTD STRIPES AND SPOTS

As most of you know, I love pinterest. I am constantly searching for ideas, inspiration and tips. So when I came across this picture, I immediately knew I needed to try it. 



This is my attempt, and may I add first attempt so I am more than happy on how they turned out! 


To do this I put some cello-tape where I wanted the top stripe to go, and then painted the grey. This created a nice sharp line between the colours. (The grey I used was OPI Skull&Glossbones). I then free hand painted the top colour on, waited for it to dry and then with a cocktail stick got a white nail polish and put the dots on.


These are all of the colours I used (from left to right) Barry M Nail Paint in 296 Coral, Models Own Vintage Pink, Barry M Nail Paint in 306 Blueberry l/c, OPI Planks A Lot, OPI Sparrow Me The Drama and OPI Skull&Glossbones. 


Here is a close up of my thumb. The colour shown is Models Own Vintage Pink.

I really like this fun nail art!

Will you try it?

MID MONTH MADNESS

I thought it would be a nice idea to let you know what I'm loving in the middle of each month. Not promising I will keep this up, but I thought it was a nice idea. The products shown are not the exactly the things I am loving but just generally. Mid-Month Madness being the things I am 'mad' about. This month... 


1. Snoods. I have a River Island two-tone snood which is so warm and snuggy! I've worn it in quite a few of my videos.
2. Scented candles. I having been loving my blueberry scented candle from my friend and my white cranberry candle also from a friend for christmas. 
3. UGG Boots, I have a pair of chestnut classic Uggs, the exact ones in the picture. So warm on those nippy January days. 
4. Rings, surprisingly for me, I have been wearing a ring which I showed in my Christmas Haul loads recently! It doesn't hurt or nip my skin which is good! 
5. Beyonce, in general and her newest album 4. Brilliant mix of slow songs and dance tunes! 
6. Sweaters, I have worn my two River Island Sweaters in my videos loads and so obviously they made it into my 2011 Favourites!

Hope you are all having a wonderful week and tell me in a comment down below what you are loving at the moment!

NOTD MODELS OWN VINTAGE PINK

Another NOTD post today, but I am in the middle of writing a very serious post which should be up sometime soon. But for now have a NOTD.

Yes, another Models Own Polish. Also a christmas present from my Auntie. I love this, its a deep pink which is very sophisticated and I am also able to wear this to school because it is not overly bright. 

It is very opaque and would be ok with just one coat but I always but two on anyway. Doesn't chip easily which is very good. I'm in love with these polishes at the moment! 

What nail polish brand are you loving?

NOTD MODELS OWN DUSTY MAUVE

So I have been trying out a few of the polishes that I got for christmas over the last couple of days and I have fallen in love with this colour. Dusty Mauve is a beautiful dark mysterious colour with purple undertones. Its one of those polishes that looks different in different lights, it looks grey metallic in some lights and subtle metallic purple in others. I tried to get some pictures that did it justice!

I hope this shows the purple-ness at the bottom of the bottle!

This picture really shows the purple and the metallic swirls in this beautiful polish.

Here is a slightly blurry picture but you can see the times that this polish looks purple in this.

Here is the dark version. I think this polish is so amazing, and I will definitely carry on wearing this in Fall/Winter months. 

What colour are you loving at the moment?
