How’s everyone feelin’ after the holiday? Full of food and love, we hope! We’ve got another short week ahead of us, and it will officially be 2016, what whatttt? We’re feelin’ excited about this new year, thinking of all of the projects, adventures and fun we’re going to have both in life and on the blog. We’ve also have been reflecting back on this past year, which has been full of posts that we’re very proud of. Reminisce with us for a moment and check out our favorite posts of 2015…
Happy last day of November, lovelies! We’ll be festive & holiday themed in no time (…as in tomorrow…). But before we jump into gift guides and all things peppermint, we’re still loving ourselves some fall metallics, and thought we’d do a fun & easy nail tutorial! What we’re really digging about this is the subtle nude look, making it really versatile for any outfit color palette.
Follow instructions below!
Nude or soft pink base — we used Essie’s Eternal Optimist
Metallic accent color with a subtle contrast — we used Penny Talk
Clear topcoat — we cannot recommend Seche Vite enough!
Wax paper or a plate
01. Pour a small amount of your metallic color onto your wax paper or plate and set aside
02. Paint 2 coats of your base color and allow to fully dry
03. Once your base coat dries, use your toothpick to dip into the metallic paint
04. Gently dot 3 points onto your nails in a straight line
05. Once dried, apply your top coat, pop on the Netflix and allow to fully dry
Guys, 2 days from now it will officially be fall! Now that things are cooling off a bit and our faces won’t be melting off, it’s a perfect time to get a little funky with fun trends in the beauty department. Some big things we’re loving at the moment —sharp cat eyes, smudged smokey shadows, vampy lips, rose-y cheeks & puckers, minimal nail art, romantic updos, fringy bangs with piece-y ends, braids galore, and balayage highlights.
This picture just makes us want to rent a rustic place in the mountains and relax a bit! This week felt extra long and stressful, huh? Let’s take some time to ourselves this weekend, do something fun (whether it be lounging or going out). And if you’re lounging, make sure to check out some of these links…
