Just been trying out some nails for the transition into Autumn where I've rolled together few of my must try nail trends. I conjured up a camel colour for the nude nail trend, mixing up a few old nail polishes to get a colour that would suit my skin tone (if you want to be economical and create a brand new colour with polishes you already have then refer to this post here). A tip is to use a shade that doesn't match your skin tone, so go with one that's lighter or darker otherwise you'll end up with mannequin looking hands!
A newcomer nail trend is the new french manicure that is the subtle oval v shape which I love and previously blogged about. It definitely elongates your nails, so if you have shorter nails then you should definitely give this a go. Talking about manicures, the moon manicure has been quite a hit this year. It has been seen on Christian Dior advertisement campaigns to Chanel catwalks, so I decided to do the Lorraine Stanick odd ring finger thing and do a half moon using a chunky glitter. This was a bit tricky so my tip to keep the moon shapes looking sharp would be to use a nail art pen to outline the shape and then fill it in. And my thumbs got treated by the polish pattern graphics trend with ropes using this seasons gold and brown metallic colours.
It would be rude not to show you my new favourite addition to my wardrobe. I can't leave without sharing this fringe sleeve detailed body-con dress which I have been searching for in different Topshop stores for literally the past 2 months. I was elated when I spotted it on the rails whilst shopping when I was staying at my boyfriends, and it was just my luck since it was the last in my size. Just had a quick peek on Topshop and it's now in the sale so nab it whilst you can girls! Might do a haul post showing what I've bought recently, what do you reckon?
PS. sorry about the awful quality of my pictures recently. It's so annoying that I've had to take them on my Macbook since I have no camera battery.
