multocolor nails : gradient

19 Feb

So as I mentioned before Multi color nails are up and coming , now there are a ton of different ways to apply this trend en here is one that I love!

instead of  putting  different colors on different nails you can also put different colors on the same nail ! behold!

Pretty huh ? I thought so ! so let me show you how I did this

You’ll need !

– 2 different nail polishes in the colors you want to use, two shades of the same color works best

– A make-up sponge

– Nail polish remover

– top coat ( not necessary but recommended !)

the polishes I used are : MaybellineExpress finish pearl , pink and Flormar super shine, hot pink. And the top coat: Rimmel londen Pro ultra shine

Step 1

Polish your nails with the lighter color.

Step 2

Pour some of both colors on a plate or piece of paper and mix them a little in the middle so you get a little bit of overflowfoto s iphone 20122013 466

Step 3

Then use your make up sponge to apply the colors, you want your sponge to look like this after you dipped it in the polish

Step 4

apply the polish by gently patting it on to your nail using the sponge

Your nail will now look something like this

Step 5

use a cotton with remover to remove the smudges on your finger

( if necessary use the color u used for the top to touch up)

And voila your done !

It’s a little bit messy I have to admit, but the result is gorgeous and anyone can do it.

Instagram photostrips

11 Feb

Instagram photostrips !!!

If you are no stranger to the wonderful world of Pinterest you have probably already seen this ! Making old school photo strips of your Instagram photo’s , I loved it from the moment I saw it and couldn’t wait to try it out, so here’s my result !

foto s iphone 20122013 465

On the link below is the original tutorial using Photoshop.

http://www.thecollegeprepster.com/2012/01/tutorial-instagram-photostrips.html

Now I am no hero when it comes to Photoshop so after failing over and over again I gave up and used Windows Word ( I know, ) If you know your way around Photoshop I definitely recommend  the tutorial on the blog! Now if you don’t have Photoshop and no idea how else to do this then you can take a look at my steps down here 🙂

You’ll need

Computer with printer / Stanley knife and ruler

The print screen of my steps :

 photostrips word

 Step 1

 Import  a square .

Step 2

Copy/paste the square 3 times and line them up.

Step 3

Go  to the formatting image menu and choose the content which in this case is an illustration,  do this for all four squares and you are ready to print !

Step 4

When printed use your Stanley knife and ruler to cut out your strips, more strips on one paper makes it easier to cut them and it saves paper obviously.

And you’re done !

You can use coloured photos ( filtered by Instagram ) or black and white .  On the original tutorial she made the frames white which also looked pretty cool.

multi color nails

8 Feb

 

One of the upcoming trends when it comes to nails is multicolor.

Now a different color on ever nail is a little too much for me so I decided to use a more neural color , grey and spice it up by doing only one nail hot pink , and this is the result !

DIY coulered keys

7 Feb

Hi everyone 🙂

Here’s another super easy and fun DIY project!

I just moved to a new apartment and with that came 4 different keys, from which one looked just like the one for my sister’s house ! So in order to remember what’s what I customized them !

 Image (6)

Isn’t that cute !?

Well it’s also very easy

What you need:

Your keys / nail polish in the colors you want to use / nail polish remover / tape

foto (1)

Step 1

Clean the part you are going to paint with nail polish remover , then tape the key so you’ll get a nice straight line in the end.

Step 2

Paint the top of your with your polish, don’t worry about smudging  you can clean it up later using the nail polish

foto s iphone 20122013 447

Step 3

Let them dry for a couple of hours and when they’re dry you can remove the tape.

( if the polish has worn anyway you can use the remover to fix it! )

foto s iphone 20122013 449

Extra Tip !

U can sparkle them up using glitter nail polish , just add a layer of it when the color is dry !

step 4

When all you keys are dry and you removed the tapes but them back on a key ring and done !foto (3)

Honestly .. aren’t these the cutest keys u have ever seen !  after I showed these to my mom she immediately did her keys to !
