Or, if you’d rather do it yourself, we’ve got a bubbly nail art design that is simple and will make your nails pop in the Fall.

On clean nails, paint on 2 coats of White Nail Varnish.

Take your first chosen color and begin to paint small dots with the tip of the brush. Make sure the dots are more dense towards the tip of your nails. Once that has dried, do the same with your second nail varnish color. Overlapping the dots is encouraged!

Dry it out and finally add your top coat. Voila, you’ve got confetti nails.

FASHION TALK FRIDAY: Stripes or plaid?

Both are stylish and fashionable. Both are timeless and classic. They’re versatile and seriously everyone looks good in both prints. But, which do you prefer?

Are you more of a chic stripes wearer or an edgy plaid girl?

All the Bloggers can’t get enough of both stripes and plaid because they give off that effortlessly casual chic look that we all want to embrace. Both are awesome to wear during any season, whether it’s Summer or Winter. So, which do you wear more?


Photo from Pinterest

The timeless stripes can be found in different styles, so you’re bound to find some sort of striped piece that you just love. The striped tee is one of the most versatile clothing staple that we all need in our wardrobe – guys and girls. Speaking of clothing that is both versatile and should be a wardrobe staple, stripes come in all different designs, so whether you’re more into button down’s, structured blazer’s or striped skirts, there’s something out there for you and your wardrobe.

Forget the misconception that horizontal stripes make you look ‘fat’. If you want to rock stripes, then do it. Do it and wear it with confidence!

Plaid will never go out of style. It’s been around forever and it’s not disappearing anytime soon. If you’re trying to achieve a laid-back and grungy look, or you’re channeling your inner fashion-forward school uniform, plaid will go perfectly.

It’s the perfect pop of pattern with any minimal outfit and, like stripes, comes in endless styles. A pleated skirt for a cute ‘girl power’ look paired with a plain tee and some chunky booties, or a light plaid coat simply paired with blue jeans, a white tee and strappy heels – you can’t go wrong with styling!

So… Have you decided on what you’re wearing today?

DIY GRADIENT NAILS

How are those pretty claws of yours? In need of some new unique and creative nail art inspiration? What about this simple and stylish gradient nail design?

+++

IMG_6483

If you want a sure-fire conversation starter, all you need is 3 colors of varnish: Black, grey and white. And you’ll also need your fave Top Coat.

Starting off with clean nails, paint on one coat of black varnish to your thumb nails. Then one coat of grey on your middle finger, and one coat of white varnish on your pinky nail! Then go back and do your second coat.

Moving on to your index finger! On a scrap piece of paper, make a mixture of black and white varnish, making sure there’s more back in the mix. You should end up with a charcoal-like color. Paint that shiz on!

Make another color by mixing your white and grey varnish. Put in a little more grey than white. You should end up with a pale grey color, then paint it on to your ring finger!

Let it dry and finish off with your top coat!
