Let's clear this clutch.

Clear Clutch




Nail Art Pens and OPI matte top coat
After much anticipation and waiting around, I am pleased to say that I am now the proud owner of a clear clutch :). It has been on my wish list for quite some time now and at long last I have one. I came across it on eBay for £10 inclusive of postage and packaging and I had to have it. It came all the way from China so I had to wait for about three weeks after ordering it to be able to hold it in my hands and it was well worth the wait. I couldn't be happier with it, It's everything I expected it to be and I cannot wait to feature it in my future style looks, so can watch out for that.

I also recently got an OPI matte top coat (from amazon) that I am yet to use and these nail art pens from light in the box, one of which I featured in my nail paint of the week posts. I've been pretty good off late to not spend unnecessarily so these are pretty much the latest goodies that I have gotten myself the past few weeks. I think thats it for now until something new catches my eyes that is!

Nail Paint of the Week- creating dots with a nail art pen


I've been trying to get a little bit more creative with my nails off late so for the past week I dragged out this nail art pen that I recently bought from the light in the box. It was my first time using it and I have to say that I was really pleased with the end results. With this being my second attempt using a nail art pen, I wanted to keep the design simple whilst I get the hang of using the pen. Hopefully as time goes on I might try some more complex intricate designs but for now, I am happy to keep things simple.

To get started I first applied my base coat before then applying about three layers of 'lady in black" from OPI on all fingers. I then used the fine brush end of the nail art pen to create tiny dots on every other nail before allowing it to dry and then finishing it off with a top coat application. All in all I spent about 5-10 minutes doing my nails, that is excluding the time taken for it to dry. I think my next purchase will have to be a UV lamp because I can't keep waiting till late in the evening to do my nails because of the fear of the nail paint smudging.

Pen nib applicator

One of two of the application tips on the nail art pen. I had to squeeze quite hard to get the nail gel out the pen nib so I resorted to the other application tip to create the dots. You would  assume that this applicator type would have been easier to use but I personally didn't.

Fine brush applicator
I used the fine brush applicator end to create the dots because I found it to be the easiest option out of the two. The only downside to using this option was finding the gel polish getting a bit stringy so it was a bit tricky creating the dots without having them spread or connect to each other. That was the only issue  I came across when using the fine brush applicator so I recommend that you don't use this application end if you're in  a hurry because it requires a bit of patience and gentle hands.

NAIL PAINT OF THE WEEK: YSL POLISH


I can't get enough of my dark shades at the moment and this week I chose to go for a dark plummy colour from YSL as my nail paint of the week. I am loving it so much so that I might just keep it on for another week if they don't chip too much that is!

I love that it has a natural gloss finish to it, so when I apply my top coat on, it glistens the more and I love, love, love that. I'm not really one for matte finishes when it comes to my nails. I will always choose a glossy finish over a matte finish any day without fail. I guess, I never caught onto the hype surrounding matte finish nail varnishes.

Autumn Fashion

A fashion set look put together by myself and the inspiration behind it was the mustard yellow colour which is a hot favourite during the a/w season. Its a bold choice of colour to brighten up a look and it really compliments the colour purple really well.
