LFW might be showing Spring but we’re getting excited for Winter…

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.
