Multi Colored Polka Dots

Hello Everyone!

Another nail post today were I have a trick for creating polka dot nails easily with something you probably already have in your make up bag.

Another nail post today were I have a trick for creating polka dot nails easily with something you probably already have in your make up bag.

  1. I use an old felt tip liquid eyeliner brush and I have cleaned and dried throughly, Simply snip the pointy end off with a scissors leaving me with a flat felt tip base. 
  2. Source for Image
  3. Then I cover a plate in clingfilm (clear plastic wrap) and drip some nail varnish onto the plate. Get your eyeliner brush and lightly dip it into the nail varnish - careful not to put too much nail varnish on the brush or it will create blobs not dots.
  4. I used four differant colors for this look, so I dipped so cotton wool in nail varnish remover and cleaned the top of the brush between colors.
  5. It is important to take your time with this look and try and leave 2-3mins between each new color. 

Top Tip: Do not apply clear nail varnish for at least two after applying the dots are it may smudge and run, ruining the look

Then nail varnishes I used for this look were:
Base; Sally Hansen - Pink Slip
Orange: Catrice -Fred said Red
Red: Rimmel - Double Decker Red

Weekly Wants #1

Hello Everyone!

I always love reading these types of posts, so I thought I would starting doing them as well. I dunno if I going to buy any of the items of clothing but a girl can dream!

Black and Gold Studded Dress; Brown Buckle Boots; Black Bowler Bag; Black and White Striped Jumper

I am seriously considering the brown boots from New Look because they are so wearable and would be great for wearing to college.

I fell in love with the New Look Dress as soon as I saw it. It would be perfect for night out with sky high heels and a clutch bag. But could also be dressed down with a long cardigan, tights and ankle boots.

I really like this River Island bag, I have one kinda similar to it at the moment but it is two years old so its starting to look a bit worse for wear!

And finally the striped jumper from H&M, I think H&M do some of the best high street knitwear. It lasts the test of time without getting holes or bobbles.

Thank you for reading this post. What are you weekly wants at the moment?
