Lipsticks, Nails and Patterned Tights

Not everything that glitters is gold, and you know what, not everything that glitters needs to be gold either.  Whilst shopping in Bentalls, Kingston last Saturday, I was mesmerised by the Gossip Girl Nails Inc Collection, and I immediately had to get my hands (or fingernails to be more precise) on The Blair Collection.

I'm a big Gossip Girl fan, and Blair is by far my favourite, so the choice was never about the colour, but about the character.  And having applied it, I couldn't have chosen better.

The base coat of a dark, forest green (Blair nail colour) is only accentuated by the clear, shimmering glitters of the top coat (Privileged nail colour).  Yes, my nail are a little chipped - this was taken after a long day at work.

And on to the tights...

Pattered tights are a big thing at the moment, so I thought I'd try a pair out.  I found these in H&M and immediately thought they were perfect ... in a paved driveway sort of way.  Not my favourites, but please let me know what you think.

I also treated myself to a lipstick on Saturday.  This is a very special lipstick, because (and now you'll work out how much of a sad geek I really am), it's my 50th Mac Lipstick.  For those of you who don't know, I have a lipstick database to keep track of them all. 

Whirls & Twirls by Mac
A glossy, neutral colour with added sparkle, it's the perfect lipstick for this time of year.
