Day 204: Candy Toes

image

This is my final post on candy corn toenails for a while. Especially since we are almost out of the candy corn season. Maybe I should do Indian corn toes? Hrmmm

I tried a different method this time and I think I like it better. So this what I recommend.

Paint your whole nail yellow. Allow to completely dry then paint orange allowing enough yellow to show. Allow to dry then paint white tips.

The two hard aspects of doing it this way is 1) visualizing how much to paint to allow even amounts of color and 2) allow things to totally dry.

I will have to find another easy winter or Christmas type style to do for the next few months.
Pinterest, don’t fail me now!

Day 179: Purple French Toes

image

I blame pintetest for its easy tutorials on nail polish. It has made me brave and given me ideas to play around with.

I didn’t want a solid color and I wanted to practice French tips one more time this week.

Have you ever taken a picture of your feet? I don’t mean taking pictures of new pairs of shoes. Just your feet?
Feet are underrated, I would like to see more cool foot photography.

Feet carry us through trials and to such wonderful places in our lives.

Today, my feet carried me through my tours without wimping out.
4 miles….I sure am going to miss exercising at work like this.

Day 164: Homemade French Tips

Bren, the baby already has fingernails!

No, there is no baby. I just felt that a Juno quote was appropriate.

Thee are my homemade French tips. I mean you nail divas of the world are scoffing. So let me impress you with my lack of experience.

I don’t do nail art and just recently discovered those adorable stickers that you put on your nails and paint clear over.

I did these suckers freehand. Which was actually easier than I first imagined. With lots of practice I plan to be a French tipping queen.

My right hand was much much worse. Notice I am not posting a picture of my right.

Someone told to try those hole reinforcement stickers you can get for school. I may give that a whirl.

N is for Nail Polish

Okay, so I don’t have quite as many colors as is pictured above. But I love painting my nails. Sometimes you just have to do something super girly and this is the quickest way to get that point across.

That super sexy black strapless may not fit the way it did five years ago, but neon blue will still make your fingers pop!

Getting my nails done at a salon is not as enjoyable, but painting nails at a slumber party is definitely my speed. Conversations about boys, punching someone’s face in, upcoming exams, or life in general.

Nail polish is relatively inexpensive, expresses self/moods and is simply FUN in a bottle!
