Obsessions

Hey guys! As you probably noticed, I haven’t been posting that much. Currently I have so much work to do that I don’t ever have time to paint my nails! (for me that big) Anyway because of my lack of time to make multiple post imma just throw a bunch of  stuff into one post. Here we go:

What am I obsessing on these days?

Nails:

This ones not really an obsession but here are my nails for this week.

Photo (3) Photo  Photo (2)

This month is October which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I thought I’d go simple with a glitter heart and stripe of polka dots to show my support. I used Essie‘s Velvet Voyeur and Butter London‘s Rosie Lee for this look.

Music:

WALK THE MOON! Ok so this one is a real obsession. I’ve been pretty obsessed with Spotify these days(its like Pandora and ITunes in one) and I’ve been pretty much been only listening to Walk the Moon on it. I’ve heard Anna Sun, one of their songs, a while ago but I haven’t gotten really into them until now. Their music videos are the best by the way. And they do this really cool thing where they bring face paint to all their shows and everyone looks like they have war paint on.

TV:

Project Runway has always been one of my favorite shows. I love to see what the contestants come up and I just think how much of a fail I would be if I tried to do the stuff they do. The finale is coming up this  Thursday and I’m super excited.

Books:

My favorite book definitely has to be the Maze Runner. It’s one of those books of teens trying to survive being eaten and what not. The plot twist are awesome. The movie was scheduled to be released later this year but of course they’ve pushed it back to September 2014! Gahhh I can’t wait that long. But it’s good because it means that the movie will be really good because their taking time perfecting it. You might know that I really like the show Teen Wolf, and the main character in the Mazer Runner is being played by Dylan O’Brien!  It’s okay I don’t expect you to understand my fan girly-ness.

Yea so that’s whats happening with me right now. I hope you had a good Columbus Day? I don’t know do people really celebrate that? Till next time (could be in a few months because I’m really lazy)

-Love, June

Tuxedo Stripe Nails

I hope you enjoyed your Labor Day weekend! After spending the weekend at the beach my nails were way over due for a mani. Today I decided I’d be classy and do some tuxedo inspired nails.

image

This look is super easy. The white I used is Essie‘s Marshmallow. I really like this color because it’s not super bright. Also it’s a little transparent, so it has a hint of pink when you put it on. For the stripe I used Metal Madness by Elf. This color has a little shimmer to it, so it adds a little something more to my mani.

image

You want to make sure that the color you use for your tuxedo stripe has a small brush. I know OPI has wide brushes which is good for covering your whole nail with ease. However, for this it’ll be easier to make a clean line with a small brush. You can also use tape for to ensure a straight line.

Tell me what you think!

Overnight Waves

Ugh so unfortunately summer is coming to a close. The first day of school is like the ultimate judgment day. Everyone wears the best that they’ve got and stares everyone else down to see how they compare. Whenever I go back to school I like to have pretty hair but curling my hair takes too much effort. However this is a new technique to achieve big bouncy waves that will leave you stress free in the morning.

image

Make sure you do this before bed because if you walk around you’ll look a little crazy. After you take a shower separate your hair into sections. Depending on the thickness of your hair you could have 2-4 sections. Then take one section and separate it in half. Then it all starts with a knot-

image

It’s knot anything fancy (see what I did there?) Like you would tie your shoes, just make a simple knot. You can twist the strands a little to get more of a curl to your waves. Then just keep knotting until you get to the bottom.

image

My hair is kinda long so I was able to get about four knots in for each section. I used those really tiny elastics to make sure my knots wouldn’t fall out while I slept. If you take showers in the morning you can do the same thing just use a hair dryer to dry your hair. Then once it’s dry take out the knots and enjoy the waves.

image

Top it off with hair spray and your good to go. Tell me what you think. Have a great weekend!

Lets Get Fruity!

Hey guys! So for my birthday my friend gave me these really cool nail embellishments things.

image

I think the little fruits are so cute! This kit by Cina includes orange, lemon, lime, strawberry, banana, watermelon, apple, kiwi, starfuit, and dragonfruit decals. It also comes with a wooden stick to help you position the fruit on your nails.

image

image

To apply the decals I put a coat of clear nail polish on and then stuck on one of the decals. Then I sealed the whole thing with another coat of clear polish. The directions say to use this wet binder but how was I supposed to know I need that if it was not indicated on the package.

image

image

These embellishments are really fun and cute. My only problem is that there more of a one day thing. When I woke up today a few of the fruit had fell off. I suggest if you have a big event or something special just paint your nails the day of. Then afterwards you can remove your polish because at the end of the day your probably going to be tired of always looking down to see if your nails are still intact. Anyway I hope you like it!

Daenerys Hair

I don’t watch Game of Thrones but everyone I’ve talked to says that its really good. So the other day my cousins were over and I was on pinterest. I found this picture I was like look how cool this is!

image

My cousins were like oh that’s Daenerys’ hair. I was just like ok I don’t really know what/who that is. Anyway I think this hairstyle is really pretty and intricate. And then just randomly I was like you know what I can do this. So this is what I did on one of my cousins hair.

image

image

image

The pictures aren’t so good but yea so I did that. It’s just a bunch of 4 strand braids. It took a lot of bobby pins and hair ties. I don’t think this is a hairstyle that you can just wear around but it’s still really pretty.

Feeling Blue

Happy first day of summer!

0621131322_edit0

Who ever said blue is a sad color was very wrong. I love this color, Too Too Turq by Sephora by OPI, it’s a perfect color for summer. Tomorrow  is my birthday so I wanted to paint my nails fun a vibrant colors. I thought Butter London‘s Rosie Lee would compliment the blue nicely and add a little sparkle. So yea thats what I did…

Saran Wrap Nails

image

This nail design is super easy to do and looks really cool. All you have to do is paint your nails whatever color you like.  Once your nails have dried take a piece of saran wrap and roll it into a loose ball. Then with the second color, lightly paint a section of the wrap.  Lightly press the saran wrap onto your nails until you get your desired look. Seal it off with a top coat and your ready to go!

image

Today I tried Essie’s all in one base and top coat.

image

It’s supposed to strengthen and protect your nails while leaving them with a shiny finish. My nails feel stronger already so I hope it’s worth it. Have a great week!

I Scheme in Color

image

I really like this nail polish look because you can still make a statement without painting you nails with some crazy intricate design. It’s really easy and you can use any group of colors you want. Tell me what you think!

Try Triangles

image

image

Hey guys! Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. I found the idea for this mani on pinterest. All you have to do is get some regular scotch tape and paint it with your desired nail polish colors. After you’re done painting your nails with a vase color and they’re dry you can cut out the tape in whatever shape you like. I chose triangles and they’re probably the easiest shaped cut out. You can use tweezers or just your fingers to place your pieces of tape on your nails. When you’re satisfied design you can seal off your look with a top coat. My only problem with this method is that the corners of the triangles tend to curl up a little. I think if you do a design with less corners like stripes that wouldn’t be a problem. Anyway I hope you like it!
-Love, June
