Nails - peter pan collar

I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend? And kept warm! I'm not a fan of snow, so when it started coming down last night I wasn't too impressed...however, the snowball fight my boyfriend and I had on the way home from the cinema [really recommend seeing Chronicle!] was pretty fun. Not looking so pretty out there today though - it's just a dirty, sludgy mush. So we spent this morning in bed and then booked our holiday to Cyprus this afternoon - it may be cold outside, but I'm dreaming of laying by the pool at our hotel which is right on the beach :)

Anyway, onto the nails!

Browsing Pinterest, I came across an amazing tutorial for peter pan collar nails! They instantly reminded me of tuxedo nails, which I've never really fancied doing on my own nails - but peter pan collars? Yes please!


I decided to do mine in black and pink, as I love the colours together. Mine may not look as good as those in the tutorial, but they're really easy to do - the hardest part is cleaning them up after, to be fair! I used Models Own Black Magic with my Topshop pink nail art pen.



  1. I wish I was this good at nail art! x

  2. those are adorable! I definitely need to try them once I get some new nail art pens!
