I know that you're flying home to me.

It's been far too long since I painted my nails. I got so annoyed when it chipped at work, so what better time to practice some nail art, than while I am waiting for Uni to start.

I saw this tutorial on The Beauty Department, and I HAD to give it a go!

I used a different colour to the tutorial but I still think it looks quite cool. I love the 'gold leaf' effect you get from painting a sandwich bag and dabbing it onto the nail. It is pretty messy though and you need to be really patient for the under colour to dry before dabbing. Excuse the messyness on my fingers, the tutorial said to use a paintbrush to remove the excess but I only had cotton wool!
