banana nail art




base: barry m - bright pink | bananas: collection 2000 hot looks yellow | details: black eyeliner

Topshop may have tempted us all with this gorgeous banana dress before admitting that we will never be able to get our hands on it because they only used it for promotional pictures but that doesn't mean we can't recreate the look ourselves... on our nails!

I must admit it did take a long time to do these - almost an hour - but I blame my liquid eyeliner brush which has lost it's sharp tip at the end making it near impossible to draw fine lines. The edges are needing cleaned up, and my cuticles are in a bad way, but I'm quite proud of these!

  6. Ah wicked! You must have SUCH a lot of patience, I tried polka dots on mine and gave up when it came to doing my right hand haha

    I can't believe a clothing company would make an advertisement in which they didnt sell that actual item of clothing. What? I like that dress too! Stupid arrogant Topshop!

    Loving your nail posts :-)
