Hey, Nice Nails! Water Marble Tutorial.

Hey, Nice Nails!

Supplies: orange stick or toothpick, shot glass or cup (the smaller the circumference, the less polish you end up wasting), room temp. water, nail polish, tape (optional, but it helps with the clean up) I like to begin by prepping my nails with base coat and one coat of polish. Here I used China Glaze Innocence for a nice neutral base.

Steps: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Most importantly, have fun! We would love to see pictures of all your water marbling attempts, so get dipping! THE LONG + THE SHORT OF IT - Photos: justin coit + post designed by kristin ess Remember when Lauren’s go-to hairstyle was the bang braid?


Well, lately this little lady’s had a new favorite. Check out this gem. It works on literally any hair type – short, long, curly, pin straight, anything! It’s so great for those mornings when you’re in a rush, but need something to pull your look together. We like to part slightly off-center for this. on the heavier side, grab a section at your hairline. split it into three.start it just like you would a regular french add in a piece of hair from the top, still like a regular french skip the part where you’d grab a new piece from the bottom + keep braiding instead.then take another piece from the top + add it in.continue with this pattern until you have 5-7 sections added in.once you’re just past the ear, stop adding in new hair.

How are you guys doing with ALL these BRAIDS?? Xx Kristin Related posts: The Best Eyeshadow Colors For You. People often ask “What are the best eyeshadow colors for me?”

The Best Eyeshadow Colors For You

Rules abound over this one and I agree with Kevyn Aucoin’s view:“There are no rules when it comes to makeup.” You, like me, know when the eyeshadow you've just applied is not right. Makeup trends are all about selling cosmetics. I believe in the classics with an adventurous splash of something different every now and again. As well as being too enthusiastic with blush and using a really dark lip-liner, the enthusiastic application of vivid colour to your entire eyelid brings to mind that dreaded saying … you know the one I mean. Spending 20 minutes to end up looking like a clown is not my idea of fun or time well spent! However, I take great delight in having so many drop-dead-gorgeous eyeshadow colours to choose from. This may surprise you because at first glance, this colour does not look gorgeous. However, the surprise is in the application to your eyelids and how your eye colour will be beautifully and attractively emphasised.

The Color Wheel: How to Combine Colors in your Wardrobe

Well so does Fashion Bombshell Kendra who wrote in asking, “As a recessionista engineer, I cannot afford to buy a new wardrobe for the spring/summer. I have great pieces in my wardrobe already so I want to know how to make the most of my wardrobe by playing around with different color combinations. My mom gave me a color wheel as a gift. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to get it right…” “…Can you please provide tips on how to combine colors for clothes? Hey Kendra! The color wheel is an excellent wardrobe tool! You can make the following combos using the color wheel as your guide: 1.

Since brown is a neutral, it will go with virtually any color on the color wheel. Colors that are a part of a “color family” also apply. As for accessories, I’m definitely not a fan of colored jewelry or belts, but go crazy with colored hats, bags, shoes, or scarves. ~Danielle.
