Triangles of White

I did a manicure on both Sunday and Monday which is unheard of for me!  I did one for a new feature on instagram called #matchingmanimonday but I wasn't enamoured with it so I did another last night which I do love :)

OPI "My Boyfriend Scales Walls" with stamping in Essie Metallics and freehand chevrons:

Fabulous Freehand

The title is not a trumpet blast,
But just a nod to art of weeks gone past,
That I dubbed a freehand fail,
Hence this one fabulous I do hail,
For this art I profess, I do love,
Proud to show you what I'm made of,
White swirls atop some Ancient Jade,
with Chinchilly and Concrete Catwalk shades,
This manicure is created by my fair hand,
One that meets my perfectionist demand.

Marc Jacobs 2013.....on my Digits Once Again!

I do love monochrome and geometrics patterns so I adored Marc Jacobs' show at New York Fashion Week, in fact it was very similar to an old item of fashion at the Victoria and Albert Museum's fashion exhibit that I saw only earlier this month (I believe it might be Chanel but don't quote me on that!)  They do say fashion always comes back around!

Marc Jacobs 2013....on my digits

As soon as I saw the photos of this collection, I knew it would grace my fingers if not my wardrobe!  I used A England "Camelot" and China Glaze "Seduce Me" with acrylic paint:

I Love My Bed

There's nothing better than fresh bedlinen and this week I'm in love with my new Matthew WIlliamson bedlinen.  It's got colour, it's got stripes and it's got chevrons....what's not to love!  Of course the first thing that I thought of was: manicure!
