It’s been way too long since I’ve done anything even remotely related to a DIY project. I get winded just washing a sink full of dishes here lately! I’ve got a little over a month to go in my pregnancy and then I’ll be exhausted for totally different reasons 😉 I’ve never been one to go get my nails done. I loathe paying someone to do something I could do just as easily myself. I’ve even started cutting my own hair. I know, super crazy! I watched a tutorial on cutting your own curly hair over at Delightfully Tacky and was inspired to save myself some money. I’m a bit stubborn like that.
Anyway, back to the reason for this post today. I’ve been doing my nails since junior high or high school, somewhere in there. I’ve always had so much fun doing it but don’t always get good opportunities with my little toddler around. Little ones and wet nails are not a good combination! So while I was sick and my in-laws had Miss Izzy so I could recover a bit, I got a good chance to have some fun. I saw this tutorial on Pinterest and decided to try and recreate the feather part of it. (Sorry, I would have linked the picture directly on my site, but when I clicked on the link I couldn’t find the original picture) Here are my results:
It’s been a little over a week since I did them so you can see that lovely chip on my pointer finger. Phht. I hate that!
These handy little brushes make doing special designs on your nails a lot easier. I got them at Sally’s Beauty Supply.
I loved this pretty pink. It’s just so very delicate and girly. I used the sparkly polish on the spine of the feathers and then decided to use that as the top coat on my other nails. I’m not so sure I would do the sparkly top coat in combination with this look again, but I was pretty happy with the overall result. Hope y’all are having a great week!
