Both colours c/o Nails Inc

So notice anything different? yes that's right I have modified my header again.. I've added triangles! let me know your thoughts.. yay or nay? Anywho, I received these two nail polishes from Nails inc a while ago but I didn't have time to review it as I still had my shellac nails(see this post) , with my nails free from the shellac, I decided to try something different and experiment with the brands new invention concrete nails. Now, textured nails will be the rage this SS13 and Nails Inc have cottoned on to this with their new range. Concrete nails come in 4 colours Momentum and London Wall showcased above, with also Stonehenge and Marble Arch. 

Now when I first saw the pics of this nail polish I was very meh about it, as I couldn't really see the true nature of this nail polish. However, as a nail polish lover and a very curious person, I decided to give it a go. London Wall and Momentum are two colours at either end of the spectrum. The nude colour would suit someone who preferred the natural look, whereas the acid green would suit the more daring individual. As I believe I suit both ends of the spectrum I tried both, in my usual accent nail styleee. 

When I first took it out , it looked like a normal nail colour but it quickly started to change to the concrete effect when exposed to air and the nail. I found that once on the nail, I had to work very quickly with the product, as the effects were very quick. One layer is all you need and once it dried it was very much like conceret, hard and rough. I found that it took a bit to dry, but maybe I am just impatient. I liked the finished product and it looks very cool. I placed a top coat on one nail, because I was afraid that the top coat would reduce the texture but it 
just made it shiny, and to be honest I prefer the look sans the top coat.

So overall, I like the effect! it is going to take getting used to non-shiny smooth nails but I like to change things up. So do you think you will check out the concrete nails?

LUST LIST 017 | Swimwear365

Swimwear 365 outfit 1

Swimwear 365 outfit 2

Swimwear 365 outfit 3

*Collaborative post with Swimwear365

So you remember that make-up post, where I did a Summer look for the Winter... well ever since then I have been obsessed for Spring/Summer to start! 1. Because I can finally have a Summer this year, and 2, because I really hate being cold.. I mean really hate. So I thought it would be fun to day dream about my impending Summer holidays and plan a bikini outfit. Even though I am not sure I am going on holiday this year... 

Anywho! I was never the one to think it made sense to wear heels with swimwear.. I mean the purpose of swimwear is to get wet and you can't swim with 5 inch heels, it's just troublesome. However, my mind has been quickly changed after viewing these pretty swimwear on Swimwear365. Although they are slightly a bit pricier, they look like they would support us gals who have a little.. ahem.. extra baggage up there. Also they are majorly pretty so the price makes up for it ..kay!

So the first Bikini I picked was a classic white ensemble. I thought it would be nice with the cover up for when you had finished swimming. It is see through enough to see the swimwear, but the tangerine colour also adds umph to the outfit.Paired up with the accessories finishes the outfit well. 

The second outfit is very fun,very much for the fearless girl who isn't afraid to mix pattern,colour and texture in one piece. I decided on a black cover up to emulate the little black dress effect. But again, it is see through so the detail of the bikini isn't lost. Coupled with the colourful bangles adds extra coolness, with the heels adding elegance. So this outfit has kinda turned into a little black dress..but for swimwear if you get what I mean?

I decided to not use a cover up with the Grey Bikini. I wanted to focus on the accessories and used pewter,gold,silver and rose gold as my colour  scheme. I like the simplicity of this outfit and I love those bangles.

AH I girl can dream, now I'm off to the Library to do more dissertation work #summercomequick
