NOTD: Autumnal Stripe

I'm one of those people that you'll never see without nail varnish on. I've been wearing it constantly (ok, not the same one!) for around 2+ years. I love how it transforms the look of your hands, and gives you that extra girly touch to any outfit.
Just recently I've become obsessed with nail art. I invested in some dotting pens and started with simple polka dots, then turned to strips and have started with the diamonte nail art (although that one is a bugar to get off so I might just stick to special occasions to get the jewels out!). I have tried certain shapes such as hearts and stars on my nails, but haven't quite got the knack of precision just yet!

Here is a look that I've been sporting for the past couple of days...

For this I used NYC in 'Pin stripe' and Avon's 'Cherry Jubilee' (which is v.similiar to BarryMs 'Raspberry'). I've been working with these 2 colours a lot just recently. I've been trying to slowly incorporate Autumnal colours into my wardrobe, and I'm being suckered in by the burgundy's and rusty browns that seem to be everywhere! However I thought I'd brighten it up a little with some white. I worked with these 2 colours but created a simple polka dot design as well and got so many compliments when I was out shopping and getting served at the weekend so I'll definitely be working on more ideas!

Keep your eyes peeled for more NOTD's
