studded head-band

22 Jun

20120621-164151.jpg

Making this head-band is simple and it looks great with so many outfits. It can be another studded accessory or something to give your outfit a little edge 😉
You can make this headband with what ever studs you choose I made one with pyramids and one with spikes. The pyramid one looks really cute but needed a little more work and the studs fell out a couple of times 😦 The spike one was a lot easier and the studs always staid in place.
you will need
* A head band (I used my favorite goodie head-bands in black)
* studs
* flat or round pliers (I prefer the flat ones)

how to

1) place the head band inside the stud 2) fold the “teeth” into the head band overlapping them onto each other

3) continue this process until at least half of the head band is full.
4) pull the head band to check for any loose studs and fix them if they need tightening
5) Enjoy your head band and rock it around town 😉

Valentines Day Tutorial

22 Jun

So Valentines day is almost here and wether your planning on celebrating it or not the great thing is that you have a great excuse to wear pink. Which I must say looks great on everyone
So to help you celebrate, I will be uploading posts this week to get you ready. I’ll post Valentines nails you can do, getting ready to look gorgeous and hand made gifts 😉
Here’s my manicure to give you loads of ideas. It I’m going to be posting the design for each nail separately.

Here is the tutorial for hearts on your nails…
what you’ll need

20120206-155142.jpg
1) a light pink base coat
2) a hot pink stripes nail polish (the kind that has the super thin brush)
3) a hot pink nail pen (to clean up the heart and make it look prettier)
**) if you have a steady hand you can probably use just the pen or the stripes nail polish you might not need both. Just depends on how good you are. But I needed both 🙂

ok let’s get started

(sorry the colors look a little washed out they are much brighter in person, my camera was doing some weird thing with the lighting)

#1. Start with your base coat a solid pretty light pink
#2 Make a V at the bottom half of your nail with the hot pink stripes nail polish
#3 On the top half make a kind of m that meets up with the bottom V
#4 fill it in with the same hot pink color
*optional* define your heart a little more by going over it with your nail pen.
Finish it off with with your top coat
… and your ready to set off on your adventures but instead of having your heart on your sleeve you’ll have it on your nails 😉
Have fun!

I found this on the beauty department one of my fave beauty blogs, and thought OMG! I just have to try it! This ballerina bun is so sassy because of the unexpected braid in the back and I just love it. I will definitely try it out today and maybe even for a holiday party:)
Enjoy! I hope you like it as much as I do ❤
