Nails: Loving Nicki Minaj

Just a quick post before bed to show you guys my nails. My sister came over tonight with her boyfriend and nights like these always end up with my sister and I on the couch watching a chick flick, doing our nails while the boys are on the balcony smoking cigars. Tonight's movie of choice was Something Borrowed and nails where Pinterest inspired.

Dark pink: OPI La Positively Hot
Light pink: OPI Nicki Minaj

I saw this idea on Pinterest with a heart on top of glitter on the accent nail. It's a different idea and since I feel like I've done the ring finger accent a hundred ways, this is something different to keep my interest piqued.

For the heart I had a hard time figuring out the best way to paint it. I actually don't have any paint brushes that are small enough to make a tiny heart so I dipped a dull colored pencil into a blob of polish I put on some paper. It took a few tries to get it perfect but I'm loving it so far.

I took some outfit posts tonight but didn't have time to post them. I'll definitely have time to update tomorrow. Have a great night guys. Tomorrow is my Friday!!

DIY Bracelets!

Happy Sunday Folks! Today has been a pretty relaxing day, grocery shopping, house cleaning, and of course laundry. I did attempt a Martha Stewart Tart that was out of my league and therefore ended up in the trash, you win some and you lose some right?! 

Other than that, I did spent some time this weekend working on some DIY things I have seen on Pinterest. I found some great links for making my own bracelets and since I love the look of stacked bracelets and I think it will be a fun look for summer, I thought this would be a great way to add a few to my collection.

Here are some supplies I picked up from Jo-Ann's:

Using some of these links (here and here) I created these:

Jo-Ann's didn't have a huge selection of colors so I am planning on ordering some more leather and beads from an online site to make some more. They are kind of addicting. Have any DIY crafts lately??

I hope you had a great weekend. Dinner is almost ready and we are having a mini-Thanksgiving. I have been craving dinner all week and tonight the hubs and I figured what the heck! Have a great night!!!
