So I have become transfixed with trying new and interesting things with my nails! I love the ombre look, or super sparkly. Anyway, while I don't have time to post a how-to of some of the projects I have been working on, I did want to post a few links with ideas for glamorizing your nails!
Away We Go
- Seventeen Magazine
has 10 different nail decorating ideas! My favorite is the one where you dip your finger in Glitter! I tried this the other night and it came out really awesome and was super easy!
has a slideshow with beautiful nail polish suggestions! I've done the watermelon look before and it comes out absolutely adorable, although it can be a little tricky getting the lines to look clean!
has a great how-to for the Newspaper nails!
has a how-to for Caviar Nails which I have absolutely fallen in love with! I really want to try these!
There are so many other websites out there! If you find any good ones, share them with me!
Holy crap! Nearly 3 months since my last post! I guess that speaks for itself in regards to how outrageously busy I've been with school, work, and personal things! Without a huge spiel, here's a couple of how-tos I have been wanting to post:
as promised - about 3 months ago - here is the technique behind making a pom-pom out of yarn, as seen on my sock puppet
. I also love to make huge ones and wear them on my head as a ridiculously-couture head piece. I've actually recieved a lot of compliments and a few people who want me to make some, so if you're looking for a new hair piece, try making one of these puppies!
these next two how-tos are gifts I made for my boyfriend. I was so happy with how they came out and they where both really easy, I wanted to share them with you:
Super Easy. Super Fun. Super Awesome. I loved doing this project and it looks great when it's finished. I know there are a lot of how-tos out there, but I wanted to share the process I did as well!
Another classic project. It has such a clean and modern look when it's done. My boyfriend is a guitarist and has a huge passion for musc. He also had no clock in his room, so this was an ideal gift!
