This season, berry is the colour to covet and I adore it on nails and lips. Most skin tones can carry this shade off since it looks sexy on darker skin tones and dramatic against pale skin – both being great effects in my opinion. I chose a berry shade for my latest manicure at Powder in Shellac for the ultimate glossy, long-lasting appeal with a subtle bronze gem on my ring finger to give a nod to the pending festivities. Well, soon it will be all about the sparkle!
If you want the same long-lasting finish on your lips, choose MAC Lipstick in Yield To Love. Dense, bold but with a matte finish, it’s suitable for everyday wear. Keep the rest of your makeup neutral with unkempt hair for a truly up-to-date look.
Is it wrong of me to look forward to colder weather just so that I can wear gorgeous winter coats and cosy jumpers? While the spring summer 2015 trends at London Fashion Week recently showed what we’ll be wearing next season, I’m getting pretty excited about the new clothing creeping in for winter.
A luxurious winter coat is a key autumn/ winter staple that you shouldn’t be afraid to invest in. Get it right and it can last you years but since there are so many styles to choose from, I’m taking inspiration from my latest nail art creation by Powder Beauty Boutique.
Championing two fashionable shades with a gunmetal grey base topped with a graduation of mink glitter, this look adds a touch of festivity and glamour while still being elegant enough for every day.
I normally opt for gels because I’m always using my hands as a busy mum and writer, meaning normal nail polish doesn’t even last a day however, I used CND VINYLUX® for the first time. This is a breakthrough nail polish where exposure to natural light activates the patent-pending ProLight Technology™ to deliver week-long wear. That’s rich colour with no chips or peeling and more durable nails overall for a whole week.
I was skeptical at first but I needn’t have been since they still look fabulous a week later. I have the tiniest of chips on one nail but that’s after a week and much use / clumsiness!
To match my talons to my coattails, naturally, I have my eye on this super luxe New Look Grey faux fur collarless coat £64.99 and this Wallis Gold/Brown Faux Fur Coat. Both are versatile enough to take me from day to night.
Military trench coats nip you in at the waist and give an overall structured and tailored look making them ideal for the office and this JD Williams Military Coat, £90 highlights my mani perfectly.
For an everyday coat, I’m coveting this stunning House of Fraser Grey Textured Coat, £150. Well, if you can’t decide on just one…
So when you’re out shopping for your new coat(s), pop into Powder Beauty Boutique and get a new mani to match.
