EASY PEASY MANICURE

Wearing: Mood by Me shirt, complex geometries skirt, Nail varnish by Barry M and Chanel
The manicure I'm addicted to at the moment is this super easy DIY; you just cut triangle shapes out of masking tape and stick them over your cuticles, all you need to do then is paint over the top and peel off! I'm loving having the underneath triangle natural, but it would work so well with other colours too. So far this week I've had grey and then last night switched to navy satin, but what I'm really craving is a matt/shiny combo. I need to get myself some matt top coat ASAP!

  6. Love this and such a good to way to cover up the fact that I always make a mess of the paint near my cuticles... Loving this shirt on you, it's nice when you wear a colour!

  7. Thanks for this awesome idea Charlie!

    I love painting my nails but I always make a huge mess, especially near my cuticles.
    This cute manicure will definitely help cover that up while also making me look way more coordinated than I really am.
    Obviously I free-handed these little clear triangles on my fingers. Duhhh. Hahahaha :)

    I can't wait to try doing this. Imagine how cool it would be if you used two different colors...or what about little polka dots in the triangle area...so many ideas!


    Have a marvelous day Charlie (and anyone else who sees this)!
