Mani Time

Lately I’ve been slacking in the nail art department! I’ve been lucky enough to find time to let regular coats dry, let alone do additional fun stuff. Here’s what I’ve done over the last couple of months. Life is so much more fun with nail art though, so I’m determined to get back into it. ūüôā Enjoy!

It looks white, but the base color was actually a pale blue. After it started chipping, I threw on a crackle coat for camouflage.

And then when that started chipping, I added yet another camouflage of turquoise tips. haha.

I loved these screaming, neon, watercolor-esque blended nails

Before taking off the polish, I played with a feather look that I will definitely experiment with again

Sparkle french tips

And my current nails, hot pink glitter with bow lace trim

Hope your week gets off to a great start!

Decoupaged Day Planner Part 2

Happy weekend! Only a few hours left until Monday; hope you’re making the most of your Sunday night.

Without further ado, here’s my made-over day planner¬†post I promised last month. {See part one, here!}¬†I needed a new one (and had to end the school year planner cycle by jumping into the June section of a Jan.-Dec. calendar planner. No more school; bittersweet!) but am always on a super-tight budget, so I headed to the 99 Cent Store and found one in a size I liked. It was plain, but I liked the color, so I went ahead and splurged for $1. ūüôā

I decided to jazz it up with a chevron-inspired pattern using masking tape and paint.

The paint all peeled off, so I retaped and instead used a paint pen. Thankfully, this method worked.

Then I topped the gold paint pen off with some sparkly nail polish for some extra pizazz.

Ta-da! Easy peasy, and one of a kind.

While putting together this post, I took a break to make kale chips that are now completely gone. haha. Now to wash them down with a little something. . .
