NAIL THE LOOK

Just got back from my first Pilates class so felt like a little pampering. For me this usually means painting my nails, which has now become a bit of a obsession whereby I feel naked if they are not painted! Anyway I decided to try something different today, inspired by Caggie Dunlop from Made In Chelsea, I thought i'd give her rainbow nails a go.

Lavender: Miss sporty no:6         Blue: Barry M: no:294            Peach: Rimmel: no:053

I decided not to go for a full rainbow instead I just used 3 colours. However I think it slightly looks like I was running out of nail varnish and could only paint 2 nails in each colour! So if I try this look again I would definitely use a different colour on each nail, and I'd probably go for a more subtle colour palette and just stick to pastels. But if you never try you never know, and your nails are definitely a great place to experiment. Especially if your like me and are too scared to dye your hair, nails are the next best colour experimenting canvas! Let me know what you think about this look!
