31DC2013: Day 26 - Inspired by a pattern

Oh hello there!! Pattern, I was going to do your standard paisley but then I decided I wanted to do something cooler. So clearly this calls for stationery, stationery have the best patterns. I chose a robot notebook from Paperchase, as it's pretty funky/edgy.

Ok so I abused glitter, it happened again but I (as always) really wanted glitter. The base colours looked really great by themselves. I much prefer this design in photos and as always I'm taking it, but I don't think these are as nice in real life. Once again they got that edgy thing going on. Also my black pen decided to continually flow so I didn't have as much precision as I would've liked.

I really like the pairing of red and Minnie Style, I think it's great (though the robot covers it). These were not meant to be cute robots (even though cute is my favourite thing), they've got a rougher past haha. But once again going to reference to my last 31 day challenge robots, which I loved.

Cornflower blue: Essie - Bikini So Teeny and Barry M - Amethyst 
Blue: Nails Inc - Baker Street and Models Own - Freak Out!
Red: Essie - E-Nuff Is E-Nuff and OPI - Minnie Style
I don't know how I didn't realise this before but E-Nuff Is E-Nuff is a gorgeous colour!! Another thing I can't believe I didn't notice, 1 coat!! I couldn't believe that either, I did 2 coats out of habit but really 1 coat!! I thinking with time E-Nuff Is E-Nuff might take over OPI Dutch Tulips as my favourite red :O
Silver: w7 - Silver Mirror and Nails Inc - Abbey Road
Black: Lovely Me:Ex - Black

Thank you very much for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day!! :)


  1. Hahahha!! I couldn't agree more with you on stationary having the best patterns! It's so true! Which has caused me to be endlessly addicted to stationaries in the past. Hahahaha! Since I hardly need to buy these days and being able to DIY a lot of things, I hardly go by there anymore. Back on nail topic, I love the addition of glitters in these robotic nails! Feels very techno-ish! Which in my opinion, very robot-suitable! :D They seem to have big eyes - still cute! :3

    1. Hahaha I want all the stationery!! :P Oh diy stationery sounds like a great idea, I wanna get to it!! Thank you!! I thought the glitter could be a bit detracting but I like what they add, I like your take on it better though. The techno theme works here and I'm all about the big eyes :)
