Hand palette for makeup artist cleanliness

Henry Holland Eek Nails Tutorial

Nail guru Sophy Robson may have created the Henry Holland Eek Nail look overa year ago, but after hanging out with the man recently I felt inspired to try some home DIY nail art. Here’s how I created my own version of the Eek Nails.

Eek Nails! Tutorial

1. Start with a good base coat ( I like CiateUnderwear for this) for a nice clean base.
2. Apply a different colour to each nail- opt for bright primary shades. I have used a blue from Orly, green from Avon and Red, orange and yellow from OPI.
3. Take a black and white polish ( I used Stargazer here) and a toothpick. Apply two fine white lines down the centre of each nail.
4. Take the black polish and a clean toothpick and dot a tiny black dot on the end.
5. Seal with a top coat- love Ciate Speed Dry.

This 50’s prom dress is also rather divine, and the styling of the shots make the clothes look gorgeous. If only I was a six foot redhead…

The store is curated by Miss Ooh La La who has a fine eye for vintage ladies fashion with a stylish twist. I love her work- and her style- and think this lady is one to watch. Continue reading
