Designer Nails

Claire and I have told you about what nail polish shades we think are hip for this winter, but a craze that I can’t wait to get my hands on are, designer nails. These fantastic manicures are worn by  many celebrities these days, like Katy Perry, Fergie and Lady Ga Ga. From my google research, it seems that you can get almost any design you choose put on to your nails. Katy Perry even had pictures of her husband, Russell Brand paint to her nails. I have to admit, I am a person who self manicures every week. So this is something I really would love to try. Only problem is I have no idea where to go. So if you have any ideas as to where I could get some blingin’ nails, please don’t hesitate to drop us a comment. Now check out Katy Perry and her designer nails. My favourite are the disco nails. -J

The ultimate fashion accessory

Nail polish is definitely one of my ultimate fashion accessories. It is affordable, available in multiple colours and is easy to change. My favorite brand is O.P.I. They have an amazing array of colours and types. Whether you choose glitter, shatter, matte or the usual shade of black, nail polish can really improve and add to your outfit. -J



Claire’s Top Colours for Winter

Camel is the colour du jour this season. Nail polish is the easiest way to update your wardrobes’ colour palette so why not invest in this gorgeous colour and stay on trend. Pair it with a basic black outfit for work or play. Combine it with deep wine reds or olive greens for a sophisticated final touch to your outfit.

Purple is perfect in winter. Wear deep blackcurrent or aubergines instead of basic black for a new take on dark nail polish. Contrast spring-like lilacs with dark grey and black knits for a refreshing winter look.

Evoke the feeling of summer with your nail polish if the winter cold starts to take its toll. Warm spicy reds and hot oranges will brighten up your nails and your mood until summer rounds the corner and they’ll really pop with winter’s muted colour palette of greys and neutrals.

Head to the shops and stock up on the latest colours to complete your winter wardrobe. Then get painting!
