NOTD: Snowflake Nails!
After Tass's review of the Topshop nail pens I knew exactly what to spend part of my Topshop voucher on (I've only been hoarding it since last Christmas...) - nail art pens. I got the white and silver, as I usually just use a black marker for black nail art, but thought these would be useful. And they are! This was very easy to do, but so pretty and wintry. I used OPI Mermaid's Tears for the base shade, then used the white Topshop nail art pen for the snowflake, and put a silver dot in the centre. Then I topped it with China Glaze Fairy Dust (seriously, is this the prettiest top coat ever?) and a coat of Seche Vite to finish. Festive!
Rabbit-like in a nose that twitches when I laugh and front teeth not 100% rectified by 7 years of braces, postcolonial in being of British-Bangladeshi heritage (and reading many many books thereon). Books, tea and dresses: these are some of my favourite things.
