Spring Time Nails :)

Well would you look who it is... ME. I realise it's been a while...and a bit, but I'm just gonna jump straight back in with a quick post about how I painted my nails today. Now, I rarely bother with my nails as I find the paint chips before I've even left the house, but I'm in super procrastination mode at the moment so I thought hey ho, what the hell. I felt like something bright and airy to compliment the nice (ish) weather we've been having at the moment so here you go :)

Cherry and Chocolate - OOTD

Just a quick ootd of what I wore to college the other day (I neglected to put this up the day I took the pictures, woops). I got the coat as a 21st birthday present from my sister, and it is BEAUTIFUL. Just what I needed for my autumn wardrobe ;) I'm considering getting some fur cuffs and a collar from asos to accessorise it for winter.

I have been looking for a nice pair of flat knee high boots for a while now but to no avail, most were oddly proportioned or just... wrong. Who knew I could find the perfect pair in Penneys of all places??The cardigan is also from Penneys, I decided it was about time I got myself a comfy cardie, I've worn it every day since I bought it :)

Coat - Topshop
Cardigan and boots - Penneys/Primark

Skirt - New Look
Socks - Penneys/Primark
Necklace - Primark


P.S. I'm currently hooked on the tv show 'Community'... If you've never seen it check it out, SO funny. It has been seriously detrimental to my level productivity though.. I'm already on the second season since discovering it three days ago. Oops.

Masquerade!


   My friends' 21st was on last night and they decided to have a masquerade theme (the best kind of theme I think!). I couldn't afford to spend money on a mask/didn't think any of them were worth it so I decided to paint one on ;) So here is a Fotn i guess? But more extreme! 




I practiced the night before just using what I had at home. I changed it a little then on the day and I think it turned out really well! Here's what I used:

For the black I used a Benefit Cake Liner, and it worked perfectly, you only need one layer to make it a nice matte black. I have tons of beads in my house so I decided to just use some pearly seed beads to define the edges and make it more 3D, stuck on with eyelash glue. The feathers were from a hairband I had from Penney's, and I left the eyes simple with just black liner (after this picture I added on some fake eyelashes too).

I was happy at how it turned out, and it did take people a few seconds to realise it was painted on ;) Unfortunately I forgot my camera (like an eejit I know) so I've no pictures of everyone else's masks but we all looked very mysterious! :P

Now, I'm off to bed, got sleep to catch up on before my birthday tomorrow (!!), good night!
