Nails - green glitter edge.

Tried something a bit different this weekend. Trying to break free of my leopard print/spots/konad nail painting habits.


All nail polishes are Models Own [as usual, it seems!] - I started by painting my nails with Sophie's Pink, then added the green edges using Jade Stone. I have some of those sticky tip guide thingies, but I went free-handed as I always seem to mess up my nails when I use them! I finished with a thin strip of Emerald City, which I applied using a cocktail stick.


I actually really like them, and don't want to have to take them off later for work tomorrow :( I reckon they'd look really good with some kind of pattern painted on too. I actually got complimented on them by the girl who served me in BHS today. She asked where I got my nails from, I told her I actually did them myself and she said she really liked them. Aw :)

Hope everyone's enjoyed their weekend. I've mainly been Christmas shopping! SO nice to know I'm almost done though, and I'll be missing the dreaded rush! Also got my advent calendar, any others in their twenties still get them? I hope I'm not the only one.
