D.I.Y Glitter Nails

Howdy ya’ll im back with another fun easy D.I.Y  project 

Glitter tips for your nails! You can either do this with fake or real nails.. lets get started :) 

 

Step 1.

Here are the supplies you will need

Glitter! make sure you find glitter that is extra fine

Clear nail polish

Nails and a file . Im terrible with my left hand. so i opted for fake nails for a better job.

Step 2.

Choose your nail Colour .  I went for a bright pink

Step 3.

Take your clear coat and brush on the polish everywhere you want the glitter to stay. to make it easy i m just coating the white tips of the nails

.

Step 4

Drop the nail in the glitter. make sure every inch of the coated tip gets covered in the glitter.

take it out and let it dry

Step 5

take it out of the glitter. using a brush wipe away all the glitter, once dry ( a few hours ) Glue the nails on and add a final top coat , to your entire nail to ensure the glitter wont flake off

AND YOUR DONE!

Quick Outfit Post!

Chalk it up to beauty – D.I.Y

Want to change your hair colour but dont want to dye it?! Using chalk you can achieve the same effects for a night out or a day or two. My hair is pretty dark  but it still shows through…. 

here is what you need :)

Buy soft chalk, not the oil. 

Towel , gloves, old clothes. 

Take small sections and start rubbing the chalk on it.. if your hair needs it add some water.. 

twisting adds texture against the chalk

Adding colour to desire areas

Finished product that easy! hope you can enjoy and let me know what you think :)

Sorry for the M.I.A i hope to be back in action ;)

KISSES,

Super simple and got a TON of compliments .. what do you think?!

i’m trying to let go of the past should we make this one a double? you dont even have to ask, because its hard to say no…

Christmas is just around the corner ! Ive been working so hard reaping the benefits of working in a boutique.  I bought these stockings when i visited on of the best malls we have around Yorkdale a few weeks back. they brought in the legendary Topshop! I just HAD to have these stockings,  if you read my blog on a daily bases you would know my undying love for stockings , knee highs and socks! 

 I paired it with the top i got a month or so ago showing how  versatile the top can be, from causal to formal!

butterfly in the sky, i can go twice as high D.I.Y

Had a great day off! Im super excited i picked up the new drake album its probably the first cd i bought in over 10 years. I have to support  artists that come from my home town and  the fact i partied with him a few time growing up. If you havent picked up the album yet i highly recommend it!

 

D.I.Y post today i m a big football fan,  and was watching  green bay so i thought i would D.I.Y this old sweat – shirt lying around.. 

here is the results 

 

Step 1 

find an old sweater you dont mind cutting up .  Get scissors and lay  the shirt on the ground . 

 

 Step 2. 

Carefully cut around the hood. Make sure you stay with in the seam so it doesnt unravel 

 

 

 

Step 3 

Turn sweater over,  go about an inch down and make a cut  across the back . continue down  the back  making each line shorter and shorter till you get something like this 

Here is the finished result :)

Going Rouge

Hello fashionland!

Busy Busy i try really hard to update everyday but working long 9-10 hours is killing me on top of styling a fashion show phew!

My mom  came by my boutique and offered to buy me this great top,. which in a sense can actually go for two trends this season but im going to focus on “going rouge” or going red :)

If there was one color message that stood out above all the rest, it was red. Shades of scarlet, cardinal and vermilion were everywhere, whether it was Michael Kors’furs, a classic Chanel jacket, or a sparkling Dorothy-style skirt at Rodarte. = harpers bazaar

Day 3 Trend # 3

Here is my look for a casual day,  i opted for a wide leg jean to off set the crop top feel .

D.I.Y – sparkle flip flops!

Thursday night. bucket of KFC , sparkles glue and old navy. 

i dont normally wear flip flops very often , i thought why not add some glam to it,  make it more personalized.?!

Here is the result and steps. 

love.

step 1 ) 

If you can buy a new pair of flips if not. make sure your old ones are cleaned well ( if not the sparkles wont sit evenly  and will fall off fast ) 

old navy  2 or $6  ( i picked up a black pair too…  * a first for me *

step 2 

  pick  up sparkles i dont think they matter much ,  i also picked up sparkle glue and tried to match it to the sparkle but you can also just use regular white glue : )

step 3 

 take the sparkle glue and put on the rubber thong part carefully ( because where you put glue sparkles will stick )  its nice with the sparkle glue because it has abit of a nozzle that you can you use to spread and put on slowly and carefully  then apply sparkles over top. wait about 30 mins after 

.

step 3 – after waiting 30 mins add a top coat in clear, or use hair spray!  it helps seal the sparkles with out flaking off.

I waited over night, i also covered the shoe with paper  (so when  i  sprayed the  gloss glue it wouldnt ruin the flip flops )

but its super easy and here is the end result !

.

i have few outfits i can glam up with this new flip flop.!! yah

enjoy !
