The X Factor has taken over my weekends and while I love the show because of the entertainment and ocassional sob stories, I find myself being distracted by Kelly Rowland. The woman is just beautiful and seems to be a pretty genuine character in the show. One of things that I love about Kelly Rowland is the fact that she isn't afraid of colour, both in her outfit choices and her makeup. She embraces it with a big bear hug and has definitely given a lot of girls out there ideas with how to play with their makeup a lot more.
I'm pretty sure that we've all noticed her pink and blue glitter mani and while I think she pulls it off effortlessly, who cares if she doesn't - she is Kelly Rowland, I don't think I could so I went for a slightly muted version...
Using a lavender blue and pretty pink shade, I did my own version - sans glitter.
If you haven't noticed Kelly's nails, this is what they look like:

It seems that the ring finger mani is so last year and the index finger mani is going to be the one to look out for or you could do like Kelly and mix it up, it's all up to personal preference.
Now, while I admire her for trying something different on TV, I think I'll just stick with an accent nail on my ring finger...
The colours I used are both by Filthy Gorgeous - Minx (blue) and Posh Frock (pink). These are both available from Debenhams stores, Jarrolds, Fenwick Newcastle and online from Debenhams.com, priced at £9.00 each.
I've never really done an accent nail without glitter but after trying it out with these shades, I am definitely going to be doing this more often. What do you think?
Until next time...
