Marcus got me this dream catcher when we were dating. I love it!
Spent the day with Jenny again.
We decided to get crazy with our nails while the boys were at band practice.
Check it:
It's newspaper transfered onto out fingernails!
We got the idea from this french blog.
We still need to perfect the art, but we're pretty excited about it!

Just happened upon your blog through a link from Kristine's blog, and I'm absolutely loving your 30x30 outfits! I totally blew it on my pieces - I'm missing color in a desperate way - so I'm loving your vibrant choices!

This dream catcher is to-die-for, and I posted about my nails today, too! :)

(Also loved your top-knot tutorial! Can't wait to try it!)

I Mondrian nails once. they were sweet. i think I did the details with a toothpick...

Emily Lauren said...

First, love your 30x30. Also love the cool nails. I'm going to have to try that soon.

I actually have been obsessed with jamberry nails lately. I ordered my first sheet on groopdealz for $7.50 (one sheet will cover two sets of toes and two sets of fingers- for $7.50!)

I got this style

and put them on my toes and I LOVE them. I have had them on for 5 weeks now and they still look great. I ordered 4 more because I love them so much, haha.

I read through the blog, but did you just use rubbing alcohol to soak your nails in? It suggested vodka but unfortunately I am all out haha. How did you get the transfer?

We used to transfer newspaper to our silly putty. And then put that on our fingernails, no joke. But your way is definitely cooler. And more sanitary.
