Newspaper Nail Art

Hi beauties!
I discovered this marvy looking nail art on Dollybowbow a while ago and kept meaning to do a blogpost on it, so here I am having overcome my laziness and getting on to it! In my photos i'm wearing Nail Inc in Basil Street, which may seem pretty boring but i'm getting into the whole pastel neutral colours faze. Its beautiful nail art without looking tacky, its simple and effective, and heres what you need to do it..
  • A nail polish of your choice, i've used Nail Inc in Basil Street (pale colours work best)
  • 10 strips of newspaper
  • Rubbing alcohol or a spirit (I've used gin)
  • Top coat
  • A small pot or glass
1. Paint your nails in your chosen colour and leave to dry, (make sure they're properly dry, otherwise it won't work!)

2. Once your nails are dry, pour your alcohol into a small glass, dip a nail into the liquid, then take a piece of newspaper and hold it down onto the nail for about 20-30 seconds. Keep the paper still so the print doesn't smudge, then carefully peel away the paper.

3. Continue these steps on each nail, then finish by painting over your design with some top coat.

And there you have it! Have any of you got any nail art tutorials to share? I'd be more than interested to find out :-)
Thanks for reading! Lots of love,
The blonde one.

To live doesn't mean that your alive..

Hello beauties!

Hope you've all been enjoying the snow! For some it came a long, long time ago but for us in London it only started snowing last night. And I think you could all join me when I say that I wish school is closed tomorrow. I just have too much to do! The thing that's on top of my list at the moment is to pack for my skiing holiday in France that I'm leaving for at the end of the week. So excited!

I'm in the mood for an outfit post today. :) Seeing as I never do one and I think our loyal readers deserve it. So, I thought that I'd review my favourite outfit at the moment:

 Sorry about the blurriness, I blame my crappy focusing skills rather than blaming my camera.
Fleece £30 - David and Goliath
 Not sure where I got the tights from, but they're just plain black silk touch ones that you should be able to get at most stores. I also love David and Goliath atm! I've been wearing this fleece all the time lately because its so comfortable. There's a shop in Covent Garden where they sell the most adorable tee's, pyjamas and accessories!
For my next post I'm hoping on doing a round up of whats happened in the past month or so which should be fun. :)

Best wishes,
