Quick nail post

Pastel pink & lilac: Gold by Giles at New Look // Top coat: Polishield by Orly // Gem wheel: eBay

I haven't blogged a nail post in ages! 
This is a really quick little manicure I did the other night. I don't wear many pastel colours so I thought I'd branch out. Working with Kim gives me nail envy pretty much every day, so I thought I'd get my act together and actually do something with my nails for once!

These Gold by Giles nail varnishes are great, they come in a massive range of colours, dry really fast and actually last quite a long time with a decent top coat! I'm really impatient, so nail varnishes that dry quickly are a lifesaver for me! I chose to go for a different colour accent nail and added contrasting gems to my thumb and ring finger. 

Where do you get inspiration for nail designs from? I want to try and keep my nails nicely painted as much as possible, so give me ideas! :)

I'm off to Creamfields this weekend! Is anyone else going? I hope the weather is okay and not too rainyyyy :( x


  1. My go to place for nail inspiration is this Pinterest board!

    I've used loads of the ideas and there's so many more I want to try :D
