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 ūüôā

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!

Easter Inspired Nails – Skulls and Stripes!

I badly NEEDED my nails painted and wanted an Easter theme but not “too-Easterly.” ¬†The design needed to make sense the day of Easter and not look too silly the day after, so I chose pastel colors and my favorite: SKULLS! Pretty pastel stripes on my toes and fun pastel skulls on the fingers ^_^

Enjoy and Happy Easter!
