Smells Like Teen Spirit

Dahlia Nails
I don't know about you guys but I am absolutely obsessed with Pinterest, Tumblr and We Heart It. Even though a lot of the pictures doing the rounds are quite similar on all three I just end up scrolling for hours through people's pictures and boards. I'm obsessed! 

One thing I've noticed over the last year or so is that more and more grungey pics are popping up and I know they're a bit teen angst but I love them! I love a good distressed or filtered photo. A lot of the pics remind me of my youth and I think that's because 90s trends seem to be rearing their ugly heads again (weird plastic chokers I'm looking at you). So in homage to this I decided to do my own grunge-themed mani for y'all.

For this look I decided to have a couple of galaxy nails and leave the rest monochrome. I toyed with the idea of having some insane fluoro shades in there but in practise they didn't work. I'm so happy with how these turned out. They looked quite cool so I did the other hand as well which didn't turn out quite so neat but at least it was passable! 

Not sure if Jo realises this but I completely stole her galaxy technique which she will be revealing in an upcoming post. Used exactly the same shades and everything! Thanks Jo. 

Leave your Pinterest, Tumblr, or We Heart It links below, I love having new boards to follow.
