Nails Of The Week 24: Nude Sparkles

Oooo I got my nails did! I just googled a picture of this polish and I found one of my own from a few years ago when I did some crazyyy nails with this colour! It's called Linen by W7 and it's a creamy white with a hint of pink. When I first had it applied at the salon I worried it looked like a dirty white but in daylight it has milky, nude tones, which are super chic. I have a couple of W7 polishes and they have the best colours.

I fancied a bit of bling and actually did these on the train to Manchester on Friday! The guy next to me probably thought I was crazy but one nail doesn't take very long. I realised that the gems and glue would be more effective if the surface was rough so I filed the nail a little so make it less smooth. I'm quite tempted to do a few more nails for the weekend, and of course fashion week is coming up! I've decided my outfit (mostly Motel of course!) and am rather looking forward to hitting the cobbles of Somerset House!

A Manchester OOTN

Here is an outfit of the night as I went to Manchester on Friday! It's the first time I've been since July 2012 on my graduation so I was EXCITED! As a city, Manchester feels like home after studying there and all the vibes there are right up my street. You wouldn't go out on the town in trainers, put it that way! I love the pace of the city and how everyone takes the weekend as the chance to go all out. It was payday weekend too and I booked the day off work so I could travel up early. 

I had some Debenhams vouchers at Christmas and luckily in Bristol the MAC counter is there, so I booked an early makeover with my favourite makeup artist Claire and got a few new things! As I've said before, if you're spending £30 at MAC, you might as well get the free 1 hour makeover! Book in advance though as they sell out quickly! When you start getting a few, the makeup artists will remember you and know exactly what your into. Even though my appointment was at 11am, I knew it would stay on until the evening so later I just topped up this Kimmy K look with a bit more eyeliner and blush, and of course my favourite Eylure 202 double lashes. 

I thought I ordered this American Apparel dress when they had a 30% off day but it turns out I somehow didn't! I barely ordered it properly in time and thankfully it came; I always get AA dresses and the shiny effect on this one makes it super flattering. I recommend! I wore my tan Jeffrey Campbell Litas too as I realised the new black heels I bought didn't exactly fit outside the shop - have you ever done that? I swear they were fine when I tried them on but as soon as I paid, they were pain city.

As for Manchester, the shops were glorious and the night was full of party people. Such a good city!!
