NOTW: Mustard & Petrol for fall

It’s time for some fall inspired nail art. I simply didn’t have the time to create anything interesting the past few weeks with my being sick and all. So I walked around with bare nails for a while. I had already planned what to put on my nails. I bought this mustard colored nail polish from Urban Outfitters a while ago, but I had not worn it. Mustard isn’t always a flattering color on your nails and so I decided to use it as a base color for a nail look. I paired it with some petrol/ greenish blue colors and thought it would be bang on for fall. To do something different than usual, I tried to make diagonal stripes on my nails. It didn’t work out as well on every nail, but hey, I still think it looks pretty.

Mustard & Petrol

Products used:

Etos nail hardener in extra strong

Urban Outfitters Mustard

Catrice Be Pool (LE)

Essie Dive Bar

INM out the door fast drying topcoat

It’s a bit bumpy here and there, but I didn’t use any special tools for this. I just used the brushes that already came with the polish. Makes sure you let every layer dry sufficiently before moving on to the next as you could mess up your design otherwise.

      • Up and down few weeks but went to see Gosia and did some shopping in Liverpool so I feel rather refreshed now. How are you hun?

      • Ah sounds like fun! I’m doing great actually. Enjoying the job, but this lack of daylight is wearing me out. So tired every night… Oh btw, I might be coming to Birmingham in April… Will keep you posted when I know more.

      • Awesome! I’d love to meet up, what are you coming for?

        I’m still planning on coming to Holland next year. Fingers crossed I’ll have my passport sorted by Christmas. Then just the rest to sort out.

      • Cool-i-oh. My job is organising a study trip and I get to come. We’ll have some time off in Birmingham if all goes according to plan.

  1. […] If there is one color which is difficult to find in nail polish it’s mustard. So when I saw this at Urban Outfitters when I was in London in early 2012 I had to take it home. It’s the perfect mustard yellow color, complete with cream finish. I’d almost want to eat it. I used both this and the polish above to create the nail look which you can find by clicking here. […]
