Coral and Gold

A: Chloe and I are going to a ball tomorrow and I’m in full preparation mode tonight. I’ve exfoliated, toned, moisturised and preened, and I’ve just finished painting my nails.

It was a pretty tough decision on what to paint, I’ve got way too many polishes! I needed a pale-ish, not too vibrant colour which isn’t easy when all I buy is anything bright/glittery/a bit gross. This is what I decided on:

A pale coral from Accessorize, a gold W7 glitter, a chunky gold Avon glitter, and a Body Shop clear for base coat and top. Firstly, I did the standard prep of file, buff and base coat. I then applied the coral to all of my nails in two even layers. After this was dry, I used the fine glitter to creat the half crescent shape on my ring finger and then the chunky gold on my index finger as another layer. I then used the dotting pen to add the gold stud to my middle finger.

Im pretty happy with it, I like the mixture of patterns from the glitter and I love using these gold studs because they give a super professional look and they are really cheap! I bought these from eBay for about £2.50 for 50 pieces. Bargain!

The colours go well with my dress too, I needed a toned down base colour because my dress has a really pretty floral print.

In winter, I tend to stick to darker colours like navy, a deep red and black as well as nudes and golds. I’m not sure why, but both me and Annie agreed that these are the colours for winter and brighter colours for the summer months! However, we cant just have boring dark coloured nails all winter, so here are our favourite Winter themed glitter nail varnishes to add too those colours for more sparkle and excitement!

We use these to add sparkle to either all our nails, or just one statement finger. Stay tuned for our nail art posts, as we are scheduling our next one in for the weekend! Accessorize your newly manicured hands with a bold statement ring and some midi-rings (I just got some amazing ones from matalan – bargain!) for that perfect Winter look. #twolittleowlsblog
