Trendwatch: The Accent Nail

9 Aug

So I’m a tiny bit late getting on this bandwagon… my excuse is that I was waiting for the right colour combination which just happened to come along in the 50% off deal that ELF were having.

It consists of the shades Mod Mauve and Copper (usually £1.50 but an extra bargainous 75p on the offer – amazing!)

I felt it needed a little extra (and I’m a glitter fiend as you know) so topped up the accent with some Stargazer Glitter which I just happened to have in the exact same colour!

And this is the final result – left without flash, right with flash:


I’m absolutely loving my ring finger bling! I keep oohing and aahing everything I look at my nails. I can’t help but think we need the little things to help us keep smiling with everything that’s being going on in London and throughout the UK this week with the riots.

For 75p the nail varnishes were really good – although I did have to use three coats rather than my usual two and I’m not sure about staying power yet (will keep you updated).

Have you tried the accent nail trend yet? I’m slightly stumped about colour combos so I’d love it if you could recommend me any!

Please stay safe wherever you are,

      I’m not too sure actually but I’ve seen some celebs and a lot of beauty YouTubers with it. I love it… still oohing and aahing over my sparkly ring finger everytime I see it! Haha 🙂 x
