Aussie Curves: Bold Nails

This week's theme for our Aussie Curves challenge is bold nails. I've just gotten back into painting my nails after a long hiatus. I was sick of them chipping when I so much as looked at them. Now with the additional steps of buffing the nail surface, applying Opi's Chip Skip, and finishing with a good brand top coat, I've been able to make the polish last long enough to bother with doing it.
I looked at my nail colours and decided that the boldest colour for me is fushia pink. Pink is a recent addition to my wardrobe. I've slowly come around to it, and recently acquired enough wardrobe pieces to create a pink outfit.

This dress is a recent purchase from Asos Curve. My boys have renamed it "Mummy's kissy dress." I love that. The material is a sort of slippery cotton, comfy and bright. It was sold out of my usual size (24) so I tried a 26, figuring I could always belt it in. Thankfully I did, as the dress fit my body perfectly.

I paired the dress with long-sleeves and my favourite star-print leggings from Autograph. I'm finding that the star print is so subtle, that I can pair it with pretty much anything. I wore my domino necklace that a friend made for me, tying it in with the polka dot print background on the dress.

I love my new shoes, I picked them from Big W recently (from the men's section as usual). All the different black and white patterns hanging out together on this outfit is fun!

I'm loving these Aussie Curves Challenges, they're inspiring me to post more often. Check out below what the other ladies have come up with.
