Last weekend we went to one of Holland’s largest and longest running rock festivals, Pinkpop. I’ve been to loads of them as I do enjoy to ***rock out*** quite a bit (doing some silly moves while typing).
I’d done my nails a few days before already, however I was blissfully unaware of the fact that I basically had my festival nails on a few days too soon!

I thought it looked amazing, so decided to give it a go, adding in a few twists. First, I only just started out using tape to stripe my nails, so opted for one wide band rather than several smaller stripes. And I felt like playing with glitter a bit, I’ve this (here we go again, sponsor me already haha) Nails Inc. rose coloured glitter which is deliciously amazing, I’d been wanting to use it again for a while. Anyway, on to how I did it! Continue reading
