Do you ever come across beauty or fashion products that you once said you would never use then slowly realize that you would. I once said I would not paint my nails blue, green, dark purple or metallic. Then the other day, I was having a browse at Topshop’s beauty section and saw this metallic nail polish that seemed to change color in the light and I thought ‘nah not going to get that’…’even though it’s so pretty.’ Then I tried it on and could not leave without it. Initially I thought I would just buy it to add little touches of metallic to my nail polish but it has now spread to the rest of my nails. What do you think about metallic nails? So yeah this is another think I said I would never do that I just did and Looooved. Also it reminds me of space and aliens which is totally cool of course.
I also wanted to rave about Seche Vite top coat it is dries my nails super quick and it has a slightly gelish thickness that makes them shiny.

Have you heard of ‘stiletto nails’? They are long, oval and seen on the hands of Rihanna, Gaga, and Blake Lively. I think it’s kind of cool that the nail shapes that were popular on 1930s starlets are back again. I just don’t know if I can get them. They look intense and could be very glamourous but I don’t know if I dress up enough to get them? I remember when I was younger the only types of nails that I thought were cool were square nails and everything else looked outdated. Now I kind of like them; I guess that’s fashion. Also I have figured out that the only time round nails have not been in is the 90s and 2000′s. What do you Think?

On the other hand check out these nails stickers from Newlook’s Gold By Giles. There are two things I learned about putting nail stickers on:
1) Buff and file your nails
2) Use Acetone nail remover on your nail so that there are no oils on your nail.
3) put the nail stickers on your nail and use the nail on your other hand to smooth it out!
