Gobstopper Candy Inspired Nail Art? Sure!

Playing with bright yellow nail polish again and this design to me looks like Gobstopper candies or a bunch of Easter eggs.

Whatever it looks like to you, I just hope you enjoy them!

Randomness with Yellow Polish: Skunk Tail Nail Art

I really don’t know what I was thinking. I started playing around with black on the yellow polish, then decided to add white and then BAM! I have a skunk-like tail design on my nails. How did bright yellow nail polish lead to this? I can’t answer that for you but I made it more random by adding three blue marquise gemstones to my ring nail for no reason. Yup, don’t know if this yellow polish is releasing my creative flow or making a fool of my nails.

I still want to experiment with yellow nail polish, so stay tune for more yellow craziness.

Not-So-Mellow Yellow Nails

You don’t see many nail designs with lots of yellow out there in the nail world. To be honest, it’s kind of an awkward color. It’s hard to match with and it can be really bright and overwhelming. BUT, on the other side, yellow nail polish is so out there, that it makes everything fun!

Next few posts will be my attempt to rock (or fail) bright yellow nail polish starting with today’s nail design with colored marquise gemstones. It’s super simple, but I need to start somewhere 🙂

Enjoy!

A Metal Beard for Your Sunglasses

Came across this indie jewelry company called Litter and it made my day. I’m sure you’ve seen sunglasses with an attached mustache to it, but have you ever seen sunglasses and mustaches like these? It’s called the “Officer.”

Oh, and there are two more styles: the “Criminal” and my favorite, the “Biker.”

It’s summer and I want my skull nail art now!

Yes, Halloween is a about four months away but you don’t understand…I want my skulls in every season! I had a few chips on my  Chanel Granite nails but IT’S CHANEL so I definitely needed to come up with something to prolong my nail polish. Hence, the fun skull heads and body nail design.

A week after, the ‘teeth’ on my skulls started to chip…so I prolonged my nail polish again by retouching them with ‘gold fillings’ ^_~

Cuppow! The mason jar sippy lid

Been drinking lots of coffee lately because of the hardcoreness of school. I found that the best coffee cup was the mason jar. It was larger than the average coffee cup, microwavable, could hold hot and cold beverages, and it was easy to clean. The only downside to the Mason jar was the lid. The twist-off lid was not convenient to do every time I wanted to drink when walking around campus or driving.

But then I found the savior of all Mason jar lids: The Cuppow!

This amazing lid can be put on all wide mouth canning/ Mason jars! Woot! Woot!

The answers to my Mason jar prayers!

Now I can drink and drive *Coffee and tea of course* ^_~

Rug Pillowcase

Found this awesome Rug Pillow DIY Project by Martha Stewart and did an aphan version of it!

Instead of using an Ikea rug I just found a cheaper rug made of recycled fabric (I liked the texture better) and sewed away!

Hope this works for you!

Chanel Nail Polish Please!

I got to touch and  use something CHANEL! Yes, it was only polish but that means a lot when you’re a poor college student!

My longtime friend Kiley is one of the LUCKIEST and SWEETEST people ever and let me use this coveted polish on myself. Of course we had to match our polish and nail design ^_^

*NOTE* Sorry for image overload with the henna skull on my palm! I’ve been playing with henna and going crazy with it!

Enjoy!

Funky Zebra Nail Design

The first technique I learned when starting this nail art obsession were Zebra stripes. There’s a funky twist to the zebra technique.

Enjoy!
