Bling in the new year manicures

Hello Friends, 

I hope your 2012 has been great so far.

Since the beginning of December, I already started taking advantage of the holiday season to wear glittery nails.

Here, I’m gonna share a few with you…

Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Grey Area (2 layers)

Wet n Wild Shine Nail color in Kaleidoscope (1 layer all over)

Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Invisible for top coat

Wet n Wild Shine Nail color in Sparked (3 layers)

Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Invisible for top coat

Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Red Carpet (2 layers)

And for New Year Eve, I turned to Love Meagan for inspiration. Almost the same as the first pic but instead of putting the glitter layer all over, I only placed 1 line elegantly right down the side of the nails. I even changed my phone case to match. 

This poor quality phone picture is for you to see my NYE manicure in action. Yes it was a baby corn snake in my hands. And if you haven’t noticed, that shiny sparkly purple thing on my lap is the next DIY project i will share soon :)

Just today, I spotted this set of nail polish at my local CVS. I know all about the cheap nail polishes that end up making my nail brittle and discoloring them into this awful yellow color but I’m also a sucker for new products with great price. So I got a set. Here is how the set look:

and here are the individual bottles:

I have seen these a few months back. They had a set of 10 bottles for $9.99. This set was $4.99 for 5 colors.

I can’t tell you anything about them yet, besides from the fact that I love the colors. I will wear them and let you know, so watch out.

My very own 99 cent thread rack.

Hey guys, 

So, my grandma and father in law gave me tons of sewing supplies including these pretty, pretty vintage threads.

Aren’t they pretty?

Here is the problem: I don’t like keeping them in containers and having to go through them every time I need a color. I needed a thread rack. But…

I don’t wanna pay $17.99 on Amazon

or $23.99 at Target.

I paid $0.99 for a bunch of nails and this is what I did: I measured, marked, and pulled out my hammer to put some nails directly onto the side of my sewing nook. I put each nail 1.5 inch apart from each other and 2 inches in between the rows. And, of course they’re nailed in at an angle. 

Putting the threads on there as I go to make sure I put just enough nails, no more, no less.

and here is what I ended up with…

pretty eh? I like! :-)

What I like about this “thread rack” is that it doesn’t take any space at all. I have all my pretty threads out on display and at my finger tips without having to compromise the tiny space I have for the sewing nook.

By the way, I said I would give you guys updates on the nook…here is the left corner of it. I have my card making supplies on those shelves. When I want to paper craft, I can just put the sewing machine on the floor and free up some space on the table. Look at this post here to see the before.

Hope you like this cheap DIY idea and hope you’re having a great Tuesday! :)
