Nude nails


Just a quickie post to show you my nails. I was inspired (heavily) by this cute Wah Nails design.

I used my new nude polish that Missguided sent me. This is the nicest, most natural nude shade I've ever used. It dried super quickly, was perfect in two coats and is all round awesome! This shade is being given away (along with 2 others) in this month's Cosmopolitan mag, so I highly recommend you snap it up! And hey, maybe you'll discover 549 never heard before sex tricks in the process! Win win.




I'm not sure the gold tips suit me, but at least they'll be fairly easy to touch up if they chip! I used a cheapie two-way nail art pen from eBay for those, by the way.

Hope you've had a lovely week, and if not, thank eff it's over!

  2. Oooh loving nude nail varnish at the moment - I bought the topshop one and love it, all their cosmetics seem to be bang on! Liking the gold sparkle tips but they are a bit glam for me for everyday wear

  3. Love nude shades! Keep buying lots of new colours but always go back to a safe nude because it goes with anything so I don't panic when I'm getting ready in the mornings! Gold tips are glamtastic also xx

  27. Love this! Can't believe how neat your tips are too - I can't even do a French manicure! Will have to give it a try using a nail art pen, maybe that's where I'm going wrong! x
