Black and White Stripe with a Touch of Green

I am absolutely loving green at the moment – in my outfits, accessories, nail polishes and make-up. The brightness of the colour is great in the winter season to add light to the more dull colours on our winter colour pallet. By emphasising colour in shoes, bag and accessory choices, it really does achieve a much brighter feel, which I believe is vital in the cooler weather. Today was such a gorgeous day in Brisbane ,so I wanted my outfit to feel and look bright and breezy. To get this look I paired what was a simple black and white maxi dress and a black cardi with a bright green scarf, pumps and polish to brighten up the look.

Caviar Pearls

photo 1-3

For months now, every time I walk into a chemist I see Caviar Pearls and often spend 10 minutes staring at them contemplating whether to purchase them or not. Every time I have come up with some sort of reason why I shouldn’t and manage to walk away. However, today I was looking for something ‘funky’ to go with my outfit for a work lunch I have on tomorrow at C’est Bon a lovely french restaurant in Stanley Street, Woolloongabba. As soon as I saw Caviar Pearls they made the cut. I couldn’t wait to get home and give them a go and to my surprise they were really simple to apply. They look amazing and although they only last up to 48 hours they are incredibly stylish. Paired with a simple black dress, they will create the perfect balance of sophisticated style and fun. My all time favouriate mix.

You can purchase Caviar Pearls at most chemists and beauty stores.

  1. Apply one coat of base colour and let dry completely;
  2. Working on one nail at a time, add another coat of base colour and pour pearls onto nails (make sure you keep something under your finger to catch the pearls that fall);
  3. Wait 30 seconds then press the pearls into your nail;
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3;
  5. Apply a cover of top coat nail polish; and
  6. Allow to dry completely for 10 – 20 minutes.
