Two Tone

 Top: New Look | Skirt: ASOS | Cardigan: M&S | Tights: Topshop | Bracelet: eBay | Ring: Dollybowbow | Nail Wraps: Topshop

I decided to dig out a few items from my wardrobe which haven't seen the light of day for a while, I love going for a little wardrobe shop, it's so easy to forget what you have! This skirt must've been the first or second thing I ever purchased from ASOS, a good few years ago now, it has a kind of three tier/bustle at the back; it's really different. I think the tights are also about two years old because I remember wearing them in sixth form! (How have I not laddered them?!) I'm also wearing my M&S granny cardigan which my Mum and my Granny both have too, I have to choose when to wear it very carefully!

As you can probably see I have the Meadham Kirchhoff nail wraps on, which look fairly decent from the picture, but don't be fooled they creased like a bitch! I'm generally unimpressed with nail wraps as a whole even if they do look ridiculously cute. I won't be buying again. What is everyone else's experience with nail wraps? Am I doing it wrong?

  1. Nice outfit! I have that top too, isn't it nice? :D Cool tights, they add a nice little flare to the look :) I've never tried nail wraps as in all honesty I can't be bothered with them. They look like a pain to apply so I'd rather just paint my nails xx

    1. Hehe, it is a nice top indeed! When I first got it though I couldn't wear it in New Look because all the mannequins had it on, haha! I'm not going to bother with nail wraps again.

  2. Your top and tights <3 Those nail wraps are amazing and so cute - I need them! I've never used them before so it will probably be a complete disaster.

    1. Thank you! That's a shame - I did them on fake nails so they would last longer, but after two days they were looking a bit tatty :\

  17. I love that collar. I've used Sally Hansen nail strips and I love them but I don't use them often because they are a bit pricey.

    1. These ones were pricey too, but I couldn't pass up the cuteness! I won't be buying nail wraps again.
