The tops were fine so I kept them, and the black dress I thought looked great on me. The green dress was nice, but a slightly different fabric to the black one which meant it sat shorter on me and I didn't like it. But that's fine, I'm glad I tried it!
The black dress is really nice. It sits really nicely above my knee and it has nice deep pockets. I like the pinafore top; it's not too baggy on my shoulders which I was a bit worried about. I don't wear a lot of black but I like the look on me. I put my rainbow tie dyed top on underneath and leggings, and my boots. I really liked the whole outfit and will wear it again!
I had also painted my nails. I've been trying to do it every week. I go through phases where I wear nail polish a lot and I've been trying to keep up to it. I discovered Nail Polish Direct and bought a few new polishes - two holos, one from Barry M and this one from A England, and twelve China Glaze minis from two different collections. All for the bargain price of £26! I'll use some of the minis over the next few weeks, but I couldn't resist using this A England polish straight away.
It's called Dancing with Nureyev and it's a gorgeous blue with a deep holographic flash to it. It looks absolutely amazing in bright sunshine. I love holographic nail polishes anyway and this is definitely one of the best I've seen. I have two other A England polishes that I've never worn but I'll have to because their formula is really good and my nails dried really quickly.
