Falling Leaf…

So I’ve been really embracing Autumn this week. I feel summer delivered good weather and good times, and therefore I’m happy to get on with the seasons to come. Sometimes, especially in Scotland, we’re a little cheated by the summer weather due to it’s unpredictability but not this year.

I find Autumn very beautiful. Most of my flowers are dying off, but I’ve looked at them for months so now it’s nice to see the Cyclamen peeping out with their wonderful shades of pinks and purples. Even though the leaves on the trees are actually dying, their death attire is gorgeous. And I’m lucky enough to have a wonderful view of the edge of a forest from my room window so I can’t help but appreciate the beauty of it.

Anyway, can we put that ramble down to a ‘the weekend is here’ drink, here’s some nail art.

Bridesmaid Nails…

So last week I was a bridesmaid at a very wonderful wedding. I opted for some simple nails – a base of Models Own ‘Deep Sea’ (I felt that matched my dress the closest out of all the polishes I had), and some gold foil flecks as I was wearing gold accessories.

I also customized this gorgeous bag from Accessorize, by sewing some excess material from the dress’ ties in to flowers to ensure the bag matched perfectly! There’s one right above my nails in this photo.

We were all wearing the same multi-way dress, but in different styles which made it fun and way more practical as the five of us are all different shapes and sizes! Don’t we scrub up well!

Deep Sea Tartan…

So is there a difference between ‘tartan’ and ‘plaid’? I wasn’t quite sure what title these nails should come under so I went with Tartan, because well I’m Scottish and it seemed more natural. Anyway, this style of nail art seems to be a trend right now so I thought I’d hop on and join in. I’m using ‘Deep Sea’ from Models Own Hyper-Gel ‘Twilight’ collection, which I won after being selected as a runner up. The hyper-gels are lovely – so thick and glossy and they have great coverage.

So who’s yet to try out this style? And more importantly is it ‘plaid’ or ‘tartan’? Help me.

I normally use my thumb as my ‘practice’ nail which is why it’s never included in shots as it usually ends up in a bit of a mess. However, annoyingly this time I felt that my thumb actually turned out the best….
