The Pretty for Punk Gel Mani for AW 14/15

Hi everyone, I’m Bethanie  – Mum, writer and wine lover.  I’ve been writing about fashion and beauty for 11 years now and have in that time, grown a passion for products and trends alongside boundless knowledge.

I recently visited Powder Beauty Boutique for a trend-lead gel manicure and simply had to share it with you for a little beauty inspiration.

Hailing key autumn-winter 2014/15 fashion looks, I opted for pastel pink and gunmetal grey nail art in a geometric pattern.  I think the colours stand out so well next to each other and my talons are attracting much attention – always a good thing in my book.

In contrast to Fall’s bold primary colours, burnt oranges and strong reds, pastels will become a tran-seasonal trend from the summer months with Ralph Lauren, and Christopher Kane having lead the way on the catwalks.  Pastel pink in particular will give a feminine and glamorous look but, as an overriding style for next season, pretty pinks will be punked up a little for a ‘polished but edgy’ finish.

Grey, as shown by Michael Kors, will be one of the key shades to wear and looks fabulous combined with pastels.  Look out for gunmetal grey as shown here for the perfect balance of glamorous and gritty.

So if you want to stay ahead of the fash pack and sport next seasons styles, head down to Powder Beauty Boutique.
