These nails were more of an accident as if you remember, I've had heart nails before. I was actually inspired by Vanessa Hudgen's mega nails and the dude doing my nails definitely laughed when I showed them him! But on shorter nails with a rounded cuticle, the bare triangles actually made the design look like hearts!
My favourite thing about leaving the base bare is that nails can grow out a little without it being noticeable! Gaining one more week before an infill is much more economical. Pointed nails do round off a little but filing them lightly gets them back to claws in no time, and they remain my favourite shape. I'm feeling a nude colour next as autumn approaches but I like these subtle designs at the moment; a sure bet for many compliments!
FYI this snap was taken in the new Selfridges beauty hall at Bullring where there is a host of those unique beauty products that have cult status but are hard to come by. Louise Young brushes, Aesop, and these EOS lip balms certainly caught my eye! I had the lemon yellow flavour earlier this year when the hall was unveiled and it felt very cool taking it out of my bag and applying the dome shape. Speaking of bags, I'm so after a new one for AW14 but have yet to find the perfect bag. Always the way - I'm so not a bag person!
