AUTUMN NOTD: NAIL TRENDS ALL IN ONE




















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.

  15. Christian Louboutin high heels
    High heels shoes design depends on the individual preferences, so can choose their favorite style. But a pair of high heels "heel" and "bottom", I think is no compromise, must have perfect key position, because that is the key to comfort of influence to walk.

  21. The history about high-heels shoes is more than four hundreds, but at the beginning it’s not very high.And the height of heels is more and more high since 16 century. The first one was weared by the gentleman in Franch, but not ladies. It’s a surprise to know that high heels shoes is very convenience for persons to ride horseback. Because the heels can catch the stirrup steadily. So Riding boots was the first shoes with high heels .
    In 18 th century, there are many beautiful maid of honour in the king’s place of, but they feeled lonely living in the king’s place. So they always went out the place and have fun. Louis xiv Has issued a series of court injunction, but still can not prevent it. At this time, one person provided a suggestion to Louis xiv. He said that maid of honour was too free on their foot, and we can do somethig with their shoes for limiting. Therefore, they created the shoes with high heels for reaching theirpurpose. At first, there are much complain aout high heels shoes , because of pain. However, with the time going by, they get used to it and accept it gradually. Of course, high heels shoes was popular from that time, and become a fashion soon after .
