London Trip & Purple Ombre Nails

The month of August remains on a high after my recent trip to watch Rock of Ages the musical in Londaan! 

It was immense, amazing, incredible! I went with my boyfriend, his sister, her boyfriend and also his mum and dad. We traveled up by train on the 24th and as soon as we found our hotel, we went exploring around Covent Garden at the different sites. We also went around Leicester Square, Westminister and had a nice walk in Hyde Park, where we were able to get very close and personal with some squirrels and had a little sight of Buckingham Palace. After that we then had to dash quickly to the theater to watch the musical!

After such an amazing night, we had a lovely fry up in Cafe Rouge, Covent Garden to kick start our last day! Soon afterwards we decided to catch a city cruise across The Thames in order to see most of the London sights :} From Big Ben and the London eye at the beginning, to London Bridge, The Shard, The Tower of London, Tower Bridge and Canary Wharf ;) 

After our cruise it decided to absolutely piss down (with additional thunder), so I was there in my khaki jacket, hood up with my umbrella flapping away back and forth with the wind as we scrambled up to the entrance of Harrods. After a quick look through the absolute MADNESS we decided to check out the food court and I ended up buying a very posh sandwich! (parma ham and mozzarella ;D)

Simple Purple Ombre Nails 

Once you have clean, dry nails, apply a base coat.

Apply grey purple shade all over your nails. (I chose "Dusky Mauve by Barry M.)

To create a lovely metallic effect I layered the white shimmery colour from my Andrea Fulerton duo on all nails.

To get the interesting ombre effect, I used a make up sponge to lightly apply the colour "Foxglove" by No7 onto the top half of each nail.
Hope you enjoyed :)
Any of you know of any interesting nail colours out there for me to check out?
