DIY: COLOR-BLOCKED NEGATIVE SPACE NAIL ART

It’s time to store those winter colors and get some pretty spring polishes on your fingertips! Today, I’ll be sharing a fun color-blocked negative space design that’s the perfect way to get you in the mood for the upcoming season. The polishes I used are Wet Seal’s Nude, Lavender Ice, and Lilac Grey. Let’s get started!

1. Apply a base coat to protect your natural nails, and help the polish adhere better.

2. Place two pieces of striping tape onto the nail to create a side ‘V’ shape.

3. Apply each polish to one of the sections created by the striping tape. Carefully remove the tape right after, before the polish dries.

4. Apply a top coat to help protect your manicure, and you’re done!

A Hint of Lace

acey bralettes are a major YES right now in our book, and what better time than Valentine’s day to try them out?  Yes, you do wear these bralettes under your clothing, but the whole point is for them to peek-a-boo out from your top or dress for a hint of flirtation.  Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s day, or singles awareness, embrace the bralette and flaunt your femininity.  Below are some tips to help you style your outfit around a bralette.

In our opinion, the perfect pairing for our lace trim bralette is any of our basic v neck tees.  The front strappy detail can be seen while wearing a deep v top (or dress).  Another idea is to pair this bralette with a muscle tee that has arm holes that scoop low like our Wanderlust Ringer Muscle Tank. With the scooping arm hole detail, the side of your bralette will be slightly visible for a playful touch. 

When we look at this beauty, we instantly knew it had to be paired with a flowy dress.  Our Floral Print Shift Dress compliments this bralette to perfection.  The neckline of the bralette will just peek out above the neckline of the dress for a pretty scalloped edge.

The front of this bralette is just as as pretty as the back.  Our Low V-Back Sweater was made to show off this bralette.  Pair the two together to make heads turn.

For a more casual effortless chic look, pair a plaid button up top with our Sheer Floral Lace Triangle Bralette.  Unbutton a few buttons, and voila!

DIY: NYE NAILS

‘Tis the season for glittery nails, and what better way to celebrate the new year than with a perfectly manicured hand (aside from a midnight kiss of course)?  We have put together an easy New Years Eve nail look that is so simple I was able to paint my dominant hand and have it still turn out good!  Follow the steps below for a fun sparkly nail look.

Step 1: Pick a solid polish and a glittery polish for good contrast (we used WS Gel Effect Polish in Bordeaux and Champagne).

Step 2: Take your solid color and paint 2 coats on your nails for a seamless look.

Step 3: Once your nails have fully dried, get some tape and form a triangular shape that you will be filling in with the glitter polish in the next step.

Step 4: Fill in the triangular shape with our glittery Champagne nail polish.

Step 5: Once the triangle is filled in with the glittery polish, take the tape off and WA-LAH, beautiful nails that can take you from holiday to New Years Eve party.
