Nail Sticker-y Stripes!

Today's pin... DIY nail stickers!

First lesson I learnt - this probably would work better in under thirty-something degree heat...

RH finished!

Turns out I have a lot of pink polish, so several pinks (and purple!) with a silver base seemed the cutest way to go.  I ended up using...

Hot pink and purple polish

Pink and colour changing polish

Base coat, top coat, bottom polish

I assumed this would have worked so much better if the sticky tape actually... stuck.  I'm blaming the heat on this one, but it was harder than I thought it'd be to do this when I had to wrestle with the sticky tape.  As far as things go though, I'm surprisingly happy with the way it turned out.  Since it took so long to actually do this manicure I assume it won't be something I do often, but it's nice for something different!  Maybe next time I'll actually do fancy shapes or something...

The original pin!
LH finished!
My left hand!

What about you?  Have you tried any manicures you've found on Pinterest?

See you Tuesday!

Pattern: No Navi!

It's been a while...  Life's been pretty hectic around here, finally 3/4 way through my prac, so hopefully I can get more pattern making / stitching sometime...  For now, here's a small pattern inspired by this demotivational poster:

Pichu Cross Stitch

My first cross stitch creation, created with KG-Chart LE.  It's a Pichu (from Pokemon), and I'm hoping to continue with this Pokemon theme through other cross stitches.  If I get around to this, I'll post a picture when I'm done =)

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…
