Newspaper Nail Art!!!

September 29, 2011 § 4 Comments

I love patters, designs, pearling patterns, and art on nails! Who would have thought that there was an actual way to put newsprint on your nails!!! This process sounds awesome and the use of vodka could be two fold….maybe enjoy a night in with the girls. A little nail art a little cocktail and who knows where the night would go. This idea was created by Kelsey of the Tumblr Quiet Time her original nail design is featured by Refinery29 and Dolce Vanity.

All you need is OPI Samoan Sand Nail Polish; NARS Top Coat and Absolut Vodka.

Steps: 1-you apply the base color in this case Samoan Sand by OPI, allow to dry. Dip each fingernail into the vodka, press a strip of newspaper onto the top of each alcohol soaked nail and remove slowly. Once the nails are dry apply a glossy top coat to create a finished look!

I cant wait to try this! Who’s down for a night of nails, nibbles and cocktails?!

The new “Made Her Think” spring line 2012 is absolutely beautiful! The clean lines paired with the raw characteristics of the pieces are perfectly intertwined. I wish i could own the whole line, starting with this necklace!

Ever since I was a kid, it was always about the perfect braid. As a young lady with two sisters, countless barbies and my little ponies with the perfect braiding length hair; we spent a lot of time perfecting our braiding capabilities. So why is it i cannot seem to create a single decent braid on my own head. both of my sisters are braiding masters and if you saw me doing my hair in the morning you would have no idea i even knew how to use my hands!

None the less, i am totally in love with the new braiding trend that is running rampant!
