Cherry Pie : Sticks and Bricks

24 August 2011

Sticks and Bricks

A bit of a break from the A/W 2011 posts today to bring you a little nail art! I feel like I've lost my nail art mojo recently as I can never get the design looking good on my right hand or, like today, I make them look all pretty with stickers and things and then they go and fall off in a second!

I guess practice makes perfect doesn't it so I shall continue! I've been trying leopard print nails recently but am going to have to get my mum to do the 'spots' on the right hand as I keep smudging it all over the place. Bad times.

When I was on work experience last week I picked up these cool nail stickers in Savers for about £1.50. What a bargain! Then yesterday when I was shopping for Vince's birthday present, I picked up some cool little nail gems for £1 in Poundland. :) There's so many little gems to choose from, but I opted for the purple/pink stars and flowers on Models Own Utopia and Concrete Mixer.

Models Own are currently having an amazing sale with everything at 50% off on a minimum spend of £20. Unfortunately I don't have £20 to spare so I'm doing my best to keep off the website, but if you're lucky enough to have a bit of spare cash, use the code FIFTYFIFTY! Some people are spending hundreds of pounds on nail polishes which is a bit mad!

I went a bit OTT on the ring finger as you can see but I love the colours! Next time I'm going to try a more simple design! I have to be in the right mood for nail art though, which isn't very often!

Tonight Vince and I are off to watch The Inbetweeners movie. I've seen lots of people on Twitter talking about how good it is so I hope it lives up to the hype! I'll be reviewing it as well so will link you to the review once it's up!

Yesterday I spent the day shopping for Vince's birthday present. Obviously I picked up a few bits and pieces for myself from Interna├žionale which will feature in an upcoming post A/W Lookbook post. I was really impressed by the shop actually and think it's a great alternative to Topshop and New Look which are getting a bit too expensive these days!

On Friday my dear Vince will be turning 24 and we're off to our favourite Pan Asian restaurant so I'll try to remember to snap lots of pics as it's so lovely and there's more food than you can imagine. I'm quite a bad blogger really when it comes to photos. My camera is always too big and heavy to lug around all day and I always forget I have a smaller digital camera. I want to get lots more outfit posts up on the blog but need to scope out a blank wall somewhere in the house!

In the mean time, Vince has been a busy bee creating some new tunes for his new songwriting venture. Take a listen over at Vince Lowe Music because they are bloody amazing and he created them on his laptop in his bedroom! Genius!
