Paisley and Crackle

23 October 2010

I almost didn't want to write a new post because I loved the last one so much. However it makes me realise that I should do something about framing those old photos for my parents.

These days my favourite thing to do is wear knee socks layered over tights...which means tmy legs are extra toasty! I've got a bad habit of ripping these kind of dot tights so I'm glad to have discovered super cheap ones over at Primark (£2!). Guess I was a little late catching on!

There's still no escaping those granny ankles!
After rave reviews all over the blogosphere over the Barry M Instant Nail Effects Nail Polish, I had to check it out when I went into Superdrug today. There really is no need to shell out a hefty £10 on the OPI version, the Barry M version is only £3.95 and I loooove it.

So many colour combinations!

  1. Ahhhhh we are sock and nail twins! I didn't even realise OPI had a version, but I'm glad Barry M is far more reasonable. I'm excited for what other effects they're going to create.
    Love the mix of blues in this outfit;I also really want a braided belt now. See what reading blogs does to me? More disso fodder.

  12. I love your shoes and nails!! I ought to check out the cracked lacquer from Barry m once I'm back in uk. I very nearly bought one from canmake but changed my mind. Wished I bought it now cos it was an LE!!

    Your mix of colours and print is very inspiring. And I need a brown belt like that!

  16. Right, I'm buying that Nail Polish next time I leave the house. Everyone is totally rocking those nails AND THEY LOOK FANTASTIC!

    I love the over the knee sock trend. Fashionable and cosy: you can't go wrong.

  23. I do the tights and socks thing all the time especially in winter! It's been so cold recently hasn't it? I really need to get me some of this nail varnish I can seem to find it in any of the shops here :(

    ReplyDelete
  24. That outfit is so pretty! I'm planning on a Uniqlo online spree any day now and have a bit of a weird question for you - whats the sizing like? Does it tend to come up any smaller than high street shops like H&M or Topshop? Thanks! xxxx

  28. OMG, YES. I love tights and high socks layered. ♥ So super comfy! It's almost like I don't need to even wear pants. You look super adorable. And I really wish we had a Primark here in the States! I'm so jealous!

    The crack nail effects are absolutely awesome. I definitely need to try them for myself!

    ReplyDelete

  46. Love your outfit!! I do the same as you with wearing tights under knee highs, I still freeze though! Also had seen about the new barry m nail polish on their website, I'm quite tempted to buy a bottle now; the effect is awesome.

  47. I was totally amazed by that nail polish video. My mouth was open the whole time. haha I wonder if they sell them here :(((

    And it's true that if the pufferfish isn't prepared right, it can be life threatening. ahh

    That's so cool! I had no idea it was the thing to add blush in the pictures back then! We do it a lot now with purikura here

  52. I really want to try the high socks They look fantastic with your tights.
    The nail polish is fantastic. I used to have a white one a few years back and I would do multiple colors of nail polish under the crackle polish and it created an amazing effect.

  53. I saw this on a couple of other blogs and thought it looked bizarre! Does it come in other colours? jazzy ♥
