Smith & Cult 1972

As promised in last week's 'Nail paint of the week' post I am wearing Smith & Cult 1972 for this week's NPOTW. A shimmering rose gold metallic shade to add some much needed sparkle to my outfit. I must say that the metallic shades are very much on trend at the moment and I for one I'm here for this sought after Smith & Cult 1972.  

It sold out in the US upon its release and it looks like its all sold out over here in the UK as well proving to be a popular choice for most nail paint lovers out there. Just last week I checked its availability and was in stock across the various stockist, a week later and it is all gone.

For the love of Gingham & Billowy Sleeves

Another day, another gingham post but this time round in the form of Shein's billow sleeve top. If you haven't seen my last shopping haul over on my youtube channel then please bare with me as I have another gingham print piece to share with you. I took my obsession for the gingham print to the next level. I have not accumulated enough gingham pieces that I am going to try my hardest to steer clear of them but its incredibly difficult to do so when its all over the shops.

In my previous gingham x gingham post, I looked at mixing different coloured gingham prints, this time round I am opting for a plain block colour, keeping it simple and sleek.

Smith & Cult Darjeeling Darling

This week's nail paint of the week features Darjeeling Darling, a jaded forest green shade from Smith & Cult's AW16 collection. The Smith & Cult AW16 collection features two new colours, Darjeeling Darling and 1972, but given that green is my all time favourite colour I have opted to swatch this colour first. As you can see from the pictures, Darjeeling Darling is the ideal shade to compliment your autumn/winter colour palette. 

Gingham X Gingham

I'm taking my love for the gingham print to the next level with my gingham x gingham look. Some folks tend to associate the gingham print with the summer, I see it as an all year round affair. Come spring, summer autumn or winter, you will see me wearing a gingham print of sorts.

Mink Shades & Embroidered Details

I'm mixing a bit of the old  (the mink coloured coat and skirt) along with the new (embroidered shirt and fur skin shoes) as per usual. Embroidered details are very much on trend at the moment. You just can't escape it, no matter what store you walk in, you are likely to see a few embroidered pieces hanging off the rails. 

I was a bit unsure about this new trend to begin with but I guess the more I saw of it, the more it grew on me. The Shein embroidered shirt featured in this post has been my first embroidered buy so far this season. I'm now loving it so much that I am thinking to add grab some more embroidered pieces to my wardrobe.

Topshop beauty Gel Nails Bravado

Last week's nail paint of the week saw me wearing 'Bravado' a bold navy shade from Topshop Beauty's new gel nail range. Given how much I love navy, its no surprise that it would be the first colour I would choose from the new colour collection of twelve. 

The new Topshop gel nail range is formulated with shellac resin giving you that gel like finish ever so reminiscent of shellac that lasts up to ten days, it's ideal for the 21st century woman constantly on the go. Impressively theres no need for professional equipment or a UV lamp to achieve the long lasting gel like finish. You can achieve your very own impressive manicure from the comfort of your home in three simple steps.
