How to make a heart on your nails in a few easy steps

14 Jul

I am so in love with all the latest nail art I have come across, it’s such a sensation across beauty blogs and all over the web. I have always done polka dots and have mastered the easiest way to do so.  I am not artsy at all, so getting perfect polka dots every time is an amazing feat.  I used to use a toothpick until I discovered my favorite polka dot making tool at a craft store  years ago and I still use the same tool now. The tool is known in the scrapbooking world as a stylus or embossing tool and they’re very reasonably priced, $2-$4 at Michaels, Jo-ann or any craft store. I prefer the dual tipped kind, so I can choose the size of my polka dots. This whole polka dot obsession has led me to include heart designs in my nail art.  I came across a tutorial a few months ago that showed how to create a heart by connecting 3 dots. you’ll see just how simple it is in the pictures below

Stylus tool $2.10 at stuff4scrapbooking.

Heart in a few easy steps.

1. start with one dot

2. make another dot directly beside it

3.make a third dot under the first two, directly in the middle, this will be the bottom of your heart.

4 connect the three dots into a heart shape.

5. give your design plenty of time to dry before applying your topcoat.

I prefer to put a small amount of polish onto a post it and dip my tool into that instead of into the bottle.

Minimal Summer Makeup

15 May

I love the look of minimal makeup in the Summer and it’s so easy. I have gotten a lightweight routine down for these warm months. It literally takes 5 minutes and looks polished yet simple.

I’ve narrowed my products down to only 4!!!!! I add a swipe of shimmery eyeshadow or liner if I have extra time, but these 4 products are key to achieve this look.

  • Tinted moisturizer with SPF
  • Mascara
  • Blush(I love corals & peaches for summer)
  • Lip balm/gloss(peach,pink,nude)
