glitter up your fingertips! {tutorial}

want to know one of the things i love best about the holidays? everything glitters, including my nails. the holidays offer a great excuse to glitter up those fingertips and have some festive fun. here is a nail tutorial using China Glaze’s 3D “Eye Candy” polish.
using your blurple (or any dark color), apply polish to the top third of your nail
 

next, using a gradient of color apply a purple blue sparkle polish to the next third of your nail. i am using China Glaze “Marry a Millionaire”

finish your gradient of color by applying a silver blue sparkle polish to the tip of your nails. i am using China Glaze “Lorelei’s Tiara” (don’t you love these names?)

as a top coat i used my Sally Hansen “Twinkle Twinkle” applied to the entire nail. this sparkle color is much more sparse than the China Glaze and helps to blend all three colors together.

enjoy your Sparkle Dipped Nails!

i love you because SALE!

Well used throughout my home is the print that is on sale today!  The I love you because print is by far the most popular print in my shop..and I think for good reason. It is such a fun and easy way to write a little love note to your kids, spouse…anyone, really!  The print is used by placing in a glass frame and using a dry erase marker to write reasons you love that sweet someone in your life..it can be changed out as often or not as you would like.   My mom has a large one hung in her bedroom and writes love notes to my dad (isn’t that so sweet!).  I have even had customers buying them to use in photo shoots! I love hearing how they are being used.
It’s always fun when my kids see a new note..they giggle and laugh about what I write and then after a day or two they start erasing letters to make funny messages to each other…and then they laugh some more.

Today I thought I would show you some of the most popular color combos and patterns that I sell:
By far, the most popular is the CHEVRON I love you because.  Each print can be made in any of 7 colors: ocean, smoke, rosy, grass, tangerine, yellow or lilac. 

The color combos between backgrounds and lettering are always different, but I love packaging them up and imagining how the customer is going to use them!  Here are the patterns available:

CHEVRON:
STRIPES:
HOUNDSTOOTH:
PLAIN:
