Galaxy Nails

I did gradient nails with a black and sparkly navy, then added a chunk silver glitter to the top half of the nail. Pretty simple and I love them! This is actually a design I didn’t find from Pinterest, so congrats to me. Let me know if you try it out!

A Package

Sundays have become Craft Sundays for me, mostly because I don’t ever feel like I have very much to do on Sundays. I have a boyfriend on a mission for my Church, so I sent him a package on Friday. I put such cute stuff in it! At least, I think I did. I used all neon colors and frankly, it hurts the eyes to look at, but I’m hoping he enjoyed it!

The best thing about being in the same city as the MTC (where he currently is) is that I can get packages to him same day, no matter the size, for $2. It’s very convenient. I can obviously also get letters to him same day. They don’t even charge postage, how COOL.

Well, I’m off to send him a letter and tonight I’ll be doing more things to make him another package! Yay, craftiness!

Little tiny quotes that he can insert into his journal or put on the mirror, or do whatever, honestly.

Since he’ll be serving in France, I wrote up the Articles of Faith (the basic beliefs of our Church) in french, then put a pretty bow on it.

The whole thing, packed and stuffed to the top, right before I sealed it and sent it!

The contents! It was fun to put together! AH! I hope he liked it! I hope I get a letter today…

I honestly don’t know how I can keep this up for another 24 months without a breakdown of some kind…

Guest Post: Nail Art by Anna

 

Who doesn’t love finding new ways to to their nails? I know I suddenly am obsessed, which is why I asked the lovely Anna to post about her immaculate nail art!

First I painted my nails with multiple coats of Sinful Colors Scandal nail
polish. It’s an extremely pale pink, which means multiple coats was
necessary.

Then, I got out my Kiss Nail Artist Blue and simply painted a backwards “C”
on the left side of my finger. I placed a normal “C” on top and a crooked
“C” on the bottom to form the main design on my fingers.

On my ring fingers only (just my personal preference), I added a
little bit of Kiss Nail Artist Silver coming from the center “C” just to
add some flare.

After all of this, I let my nails dry to the “sticky” stage and added a clear top coat, which for me is Seche Vite.

Et voila! A cute way to design your nails. Use red and gold to spice it up for the Holidays, or give as a gift to a little sister!
