Punk Rock Nails

Gone are the bright coloured nails of summer and now they have been replaced by more autumnal shades.  Punk Rock (part of the Rimmel Salon Pro Kate line) is perfect for this time of the year.

From far away you don't see the beauty of this shade...  it just looks like any other dark steely shade.  But up close it's a whole different story.  You can really see the creamy plumy purple tone to this and I happen to love it.

When I picked this up, the first thought which came to me is 'I've never seen a shade like this before' which is true.  I don't think there is a shade like this... it feels like one of a kind.  I can see myself wearing Punk Rock a lot this winter.  It's that perfect shade.

Holiday nails... Rimmel Peppermint

Yeah so I'm showing you my feet..ugly I know and I apologise for that.  However I had to share with you my favourite holiday nail polish and it just so happens I was wearing it on my toes.  See there is always a reason for everything.

Peppermint from Rimmel (part of the Salon Pro line) was my go-to polish for my trip to Greece.  It's that perfect eye catching turquoise green which is pretty and bright.  Just the colour a girl needs on her holidays.

There were lots of pros: the longevity, the shine, the colour with my tanned skin, the brush and consistency.  There weren't no cons to be honest. I can't really fault it, even the price is good. 

To get this look I used two costs with no top coat.  As you can see it's very glossy.  The lasting power was ridiculous.  I had to force myself to take it off.

What is your holiday colour??


P.S....Happy Friday my friends.

Clown Pants and Kimonos

I'll start this post by mentioning the obvious.  I have no idea at all what the official name for this style of trouser is.  I keep referring to them as clown pants and it's kind of stuck in my mind now.

So moving on... kimonos and clown pants are a big thing right now... they are everywhere.  I thought they would not suit me and would engulf my frame and height.  However sometimes you need to bite the bullet and be brave.  Got for it!

I wouldn't say I was the most fashionable girl on the streets of Skiathos town in these pictures but I like the clash of patterns.  I would never usually do that... but here it works.  Well I think so anyway.

Kimono | Primark - no online store.
Clown Trousers | Primark - again no hiss!
Black Vest | Marks and Spencer - Link here

This outfit has proved to me it is good to mix up patterns and to be daring.  You just never know it might just work for you.
