OOTD ~ Carry On Paddling! Pt 2

image

Hi Di Hi campers!
This is my second OOTD from my camping trip to Woolacombe ^_^

Here I am wearing the same Judy sunglasses by Collectif. I had a nightmare the other day that I’d broken them and was so upset! :’-(

On my lips I’m wearing Rimmel’s Apocalips Big Bang, it’s a perfect pillar box red that works so well when going for a retro or vintage style look.

The vest is from Sweaty Betty and the red polka dot bikini that I’m wearing underneath is from Freya – it’s about 6 years old! :-/

The beautiful shorts are by Tara Starlet. They are so comfortable and easy to wear ^_^ I managed to find these on Ebay for a snip; I don’t think I could have bought myself to wear them on the beach if I’d paid the full retail price o_O

I really love this picture, I feel like I achieved the look I was going for and for once I can agree that I look good! The Captain has been away working and when he got back he showed me his phone; he’s set this picture as his lock screen and his wallpaper ^_^ he doesn’t normally do things like that so it bought a big smile to my face {^_^}

Concrete proof of textured nails!

Hello!

Today I have painted my nails with Nails Inc Concrete textured nail varnish in London Wall. The colour is hard to describe, it’s almost a putty grey colour and I guess it would be on the taupe side of things!

As you can see the texture is very rough and bumpy. I’ve worn this a few times and it always gets mixed reactions, but is intriguing and gets attention! It does feel rough and you have to be careful if you have an itch! I’ve not worn it at the same time as wearing tights; I do think it has the potential to snag.

I have found that this nail varnish wears really well. I don’t use a top coat as this would stop it being matte and even out the texture. As a base coat I used 2 coats of Dr LeWinn’s RenuNail in sensitive. I’ve got to write a post on Dr LeWinn’s RenuNail treatment system and the sensitive maintenance varnish as I have been amazed with the results!!!
Nails Inc Concrete doesn’t chip on me and lasts about a week with minimal tip wear, which I spot touch up.

I used to shy away from using grey tones when I had long nails, but for some reason this autumn I’ve changed my mind.

Do you think grey and darker colours suit short nails better?
