Nail Tips - Livening Up Polishes - Glitter Dots Y'all

The lovely Síle (whose Bday it is today, whoot!) one of the four brains behind the fab Emerald Eyeliner blog was showing us her picks for Sally Hansen Autumn Nails  but was fairly iffy about the above colour, Café Au Lait, for wearing on its lonesome. The above is my take on how to rock the colour and was tweeted with the quickness.

We know I have Magpieitis when it comes to glitters so I got to thinking... Using a simple hair clip as a dotting tool like I did with the cherry blossom nails any colour can be brought to life. 

Several colour combos

& on the nail

While I'm not advocating you wear every combination you have at once, merely showing you options, they're your nails and if that floats your boat get mixing and matching!

Nudes can be livened up and mattes given a lift while still being office appropriate or your more garish colours can be combined with more dots for night out nails. 

What do we reckon? Give it a shot?

Hi Sue, that's so pretty. I had actually thought of buying that shade from Sally Hansen then two others I bought were big failures. I think they are too thick but this one, would definitely not stain the nail (like the Fairy Teal) don't get me started on that.

Definitely going to buy Cafe Au Lait it looks gorgeous, thankyou :) Love how you dressed it up with glitter. I'd do something similar I love glittered nails :)

Thanks again for the birthday shout out! I love this idea... what's the colour you have on the whole nail on the middle finger? Graphite? So gorgeous. I'm going on the hunt for those Angelica glitters this afternoon.

And it's become a sea of cheap, instantly-gratifying, mass-produced and quickly forgotten snapshots. The reason for this is that we often throw ourselves into all of the 'doing' and forget to check 'within' - first of all to ensure our mindset is onboard and really is part of 'the
plan', secondly, what you want is 'congruent' with who you are born to be, and thirdly - that out hearts, mind and soul are in 'alignment'. For this reason, entrepreneurs should consider investing in a business that they are truly passionate about, because when certain distractions come, their passion will continue to drive them even when their lack of ambition doesn't.
