Beyonce - If I Were a Boy

decidedly bored whilst lounging in the south of France (where else would i be spending my summer daaahling?), claire and i thought we would pass our time festooning our nails with the print of the cutest of big cats; leopard! this look is easily achieved with a base coat, two of your favourite nail varnishes, liquid eyeliner, a top coat, steady hands AND a boxset of series three of Gilmore Girls.
method
1. paint your nails with the base colour coat (nudey lilac)
2. using an opened out bobby pin, put slightly linear blobs on your nails (gold)
3. then, take your liquid eyeliner (any one will do) and carefully encircle your linear blobs, leaving a tiny gap so it’s not quite an enclosed circle. you’re aiming for an ‘o’ which never quite manages to kiss. an overeager ‘c’ if you will.
4. and just simply pop on a top coat and wait to fully dry – this is where Gilmore girls comes in handy!





(Sally Hansen Base&Top coat, Model’s Own Utopia, 17’s Sphinx, Barry M liquid eyeliner in black, Nails Inc Top coat)
i’m having a glorious time with my best friend, we’re filling our days with sand, sunbathing, workouts and our nights with Lorelai and Rory, apertifs (Francais for pre-dinner drinks don’tcha know) and plenty of French cheese. and we’re only sneaking to the cafĂ© to use the internet every few days, so the internet’s imaginary claws are only loosely grasped round our wrists.
