101 Dalmations

After seeing the models at Topshop Unique sporting dalmation nails it's a design I have been dying to try but I've been saving it for the perfect outfit.  I wanted something simple and monotone as it's very striking!

Dalmation Nails at Topshop Unique by Sophy Robson



I created my version using Models Own Snow White as the base and have used their nail art pen in black to add the splodges.  I found it easier to use the pen than to try and control the splodges from a brush.  What do you think?  I like it!  



Dress: Dorothy Perkins
Satchel: Primark

If you follow me on twitter you may have seen a photo of this satchel already, isn't it ace?!  It's just big enough to fit my iPad in, a necessity for me when buying a bag.  Best bit is it was only £7!!  A total steal.  I am wearing the white version of this dress that I picked up in the Dorothy Perkins sale for a whole £20.  It's not as wearable as the black but makes a nice change and I have a lot of love monotone outfits, especially when enhanced with a flash of colour.

I'm off to my sisters wedding dress fitting today followed by lunch with the other bridesmaids.  I also have a friends engagement drinks tonight so today is going to be jam packed.  No time for a little impromptu shopping trip.

I haven't mentioned the heart wrenching Japanese earthquake and tsunami as my words are of insignificance.  I am sure your thoughts are already with the people whose lives have been turned upside down and urge you to donate if you can.  It really does put things into perspective :(

    I could never wear white, first thing I would do it spill tea on it, Im so clumsy!!
    Love your nails, that topshop show was really cute. Loved the models with little noses painted on and their hair like little ears on top. So fun and not too serious, thats why I love British fashion

  15. Great nails :) I saw that dalmation print was big at LFW, but I'm not sure about it- so this would be great to try! Something small, but just as effective.
    Oh my gosh, that dress is stunning :) & the sacthel is lovely! You look super pretty
