I've got some fun nails for Fall
to share with you all
(I'm not really a poet)
(though that was a haiku, hehe...) today that are inspired by none other than Burberry. I love pretty much anything Burberry, from their delicious perfumes to their luxurious makeup, but haven't ever purchased anything since I don't feel good enough to use their beautiful products... not to mention the fact that I can't afford anything they sell, but let's ignore that little detail, shall we?
Take the jump to see what I used to get this look!
I used a pretty wide variety of nail polish brands, but you can basically use whatever you want so long as the colors are similar to the famous Burberry plaid! The black polish/nail art pen is something I got off of ebay for suuuuper cheap (I think $1.50-2?) so I definitely suggest looking there if you want nail pens and other nail accessories :)
To get the look, all you have to do is be patient!! It's all about letting the different layers dry between coats; do your typical bottom layer of the tan polish, then add a strip of white near the top of the nail, add the red stripes, then finish things off with the thin black stripes! I used a thin craft paint brush to do the red stripes and the pen nib on my nail art pen to do the black.
And to prove you don't have to be perfect with these nails, just check out the photo below. Even though I let all of the polish dry, my top coat made the red and black stripes bleed :(
But it's okay, really! From far away, it's not something that others will detect :)
And for further imperfection, take a look at these 'blooper' photos that Galileo caused... cracks me up.
"Oh hey meow, what'cha doin'?"
"What, you didn't want them arranged like this? Stupid mommy, meow..."
"Playyyyy with me meow... PLAYYYYY with me or I'll photo bomb the rest of your photos..."
Do you lust over Burberry products like I do?
What's your favorite designer brand that makes more than just beautiful clothes?
Are you embracing plaid this Fall?
