GDN Is Seeing Stars

Grazia Daily Nail was in quite the quandary this morning. Inspired by the super-hot Olivia Wilde, who had us all starry eyed when sporting a snazzy Dolce & Gabbana frock last night, we wore a Zara jumpsuit emblazoned with white stars in tribute (if only we could have Olivia's silky locks too - sigh). BUT, as a self-confessed nail aficionado, GDN couldn't decide which manicure would work best with such a lively print... See, what a conundrum.

So this is why were were shooting down to WAH at Topshop this lunchtime for some expert advice. 'How about a starry manicure to match?' the uber-cool nail maestro behind the bar suggested. Genius! As you will have seen from last week's Grazia, the trend has recently skyrocketed to Motif-of-the-Moment status with err, stars including Solange Knowles and Evan Rachel Wood, as well as Ms Wilde, getting in on the act.

So first step was a base coat of deep violet by Essie. Then out came the very special WAH pen in white for delicately drawing on a pretty galaxy of stars before finishing off with lashings of clear nail polish. And here's the result:

Do you like? If yes, do try this at home, kids. Just find yourself a veeery fine paintbrush for the fiddily bits. Or, better yet, head to WAH and let the wizards there do it for you. And bring on the star gazing...
