Lana Del Rey Inspired nails: Pointy red tips

This is my second nail post of the day but I think for the first time they are my natural nails! The only reason why this is because over time of having my nails done at the salon they were in terrible condition which is normal, thank god before getting the nails done in my last post I let my natural ones grow stronger and healthier or else they probably would of fell off by now! ( Not literally though haha, bit exaggerated…) In all seriousness they were in very bad condition so I decided to research nail designs to practice on my natural nails as they grew longer, after all its not like you have to have boring nails just because they are a bit damaged!

Anyways I mainly researched pointed nail designs because they are gorgeous and so feminine! Well I think so :). Whilst researching I came across Lana Del Rey’s signature red pointed nails and since they were not complicated to recreate I thought why not give it a little go…..

This is what the lovely Lana’s nails looks like………….

Here is my recreation of this look, my nails are a lot shorter then Lana’s which makes the look less bold.

What do you think, would you give this look a go?

Trend & Update: Ombre Hair (DIY) L’oreal Wild Ombre Kit

Heyy my lovelies, again it has been a while since I have posted anything for you. Since then there have been a few changes and one of those is changing my hair for the new season. I know ‘Ombre’ hair or as others would call it ‘Dip Dye’ hair is a very popular trend the a range of different colours. Caught up in the trend and coming across hundreds of pictures I picked up a DIY Wild Ombre kit by L’oreal and gave it a go. Unfortunately I do not still have the kit or I would have shown you the brush that came with it, even though I don’t think there is a point in doing so. By this I mean that the brush was not effective at all when it came to brushing the product through my hair, I mean it was so small that I had to grab my actual hairbrush and brush it through at the end to make sure it really blended and didnt leave any bleach spots!

Before I actually used the kit I dyed my hair a very dark brown to take the colour I had previously in it, here is the finished look after dying.

These pictures were taken just after I had washed the dye out and dried it, I noticed that after using the kit with bleach and lightener my hair was quite dry and knotted. However after conditioning a few times it did blend my hair in more and return it back to its shiny silky self :).

Here is a picture of what my hair returned to after a week…………

Overall I think I did a pretty good job with blending it into my hair, the results have paid off and the cost was a lot cheaper than going to the salon and getting it done. The kit was very good and came with clear instructions and  think it was around £6 or £7. Whats not to love about it! Well apart from the brush that comes with it but that can always be worked around :).

What do you think about my new hair? Would you Ombre your hair?
