Throwback Thursday – Saran Wrap Manicure

Last week I wanted to do some water marbling, but I’d already done the traditional dipping-in-water technique on my sister’s nails so I decided to finally try the saran wrap manicure! It was super easy and I love the outcome! Makes me think of my birthstone – turquoise!

(Sorry for the thumb chip, this was after a few days of wear.)

Have you ever tried this technique? I think I actually prefer this to water marbling just because of the messiness aspect of the latter. But they both provide some unique and gorgeous looks!

Sharing Saturday – Justin Bieber Nails

Last Wednesday, my sister went to a Justin Bieber concert. Obviously, she asked me to do her nails. My first thought? Put his face on her nails a la Katy Perry

I kinda just made up the rest as I went. This is how they turned out! (As always, I needed to add some rhinestones..)

Mani Monday – Rhinestones!

I started at least attempting to get into a Valentine’s mood, but I don’t actually have very many pink polishes at school with me 😦

So what else to do but use pink and red rhinestones! I wanted to try making a heart shape with the rhinestones, but it was only my second time using them and my placement method needs work.

Here’s how they turned out instead! (And I apologize for the pictures, for some reason it was really difficult to keep the camera focused on the rhinestones!)
