NOTD matching my nails to my dress

I got distracted yesterday and forgot to post this. Last night I ended uo going to see spiderman. It was so good. Actually had to hold back tears at one point (I’m a crier at films) lots of cinema trips thus week as me and L are off to see magic mike. I can ‘t believe she’ll have been in the country almost a week before I see her!

So onto to today’s post. I spent last week at my parents. It was so nice to have a week to catch up with everyone as weekends I seem to spend rushing.

Whilst at home I took advantage of having time to paint my nails and did them to match my outfits for my planned nights out.

Here is the first outfit I matched my nails to. 

Dress New Look spring sale

Blazer Next Christmas Sale

Belt Primark

Sorry I’m a bad blogger and only took finished photo’s. But both designs are easy to do.

Firstly I wore this red dress for a meal with the family (you may have seen it before if you read the post on L’s birthday night out) I picked it up in the new look sale a while back. I love the pattern on it and decided to try and do a feature nail with the pattern. I painted two coats of Avon Nailwear Pro+ in Real Red. I was pretty impressed with the opaqueness after one coat and it dried well.My nail art skills aren’t good enough to do all my nails.

Using my trusty ebay dotting tool (I need to pick up nail art brushes soon) I started to create a fan shape with scollaped edges. I simplified the design a bit. I used OPI alpine white for this (I got the best of the best mini set for Christmas). It’s great for nail art as its really opaque. 

I drew to of the spikey white fan shapes on each of my ring fingers. Next I used No7 Grey skies (only £2 with a voucher) I drew little half circles as with my dotting tool I couldn’t be precise enough to smaller spikes.

Lastly using OPI Lincoln After Dark I tried to paint little triangles at the bottom of the fan shape and then used the No7 grey skies to add stems.

And the final look. It’s not an exact match the patter was too fiddley but I like the way it looks only being on one nail.

The other hand. 

What do you think? Do you try to match nails to your outfit?
