DIY: Printed tights

You will need: a pair of tights, fabric paint, a paintbrush, 12 index cards, craft punches, scissors, and a paper plate. Start by cutting the index cards into fourths. Then, use the craft punch to punch out a shape in each notecard. Line up 12 stencils on each leg of the tights and plan out your design. Once you like what you have, squirt a blob of paint on to the paper plate and dip your paintbrush in it. Use the paintbrush to paint over your stencil cut out, working from the outside in. Once you've painted all of the stencils, allow the tights to dry. Once they are dry, flip the tights over and repeat on the back side. 

Stay Beautiful! ;D

DIY: Shredded French Nails

Ready for these ferocious French nails? Start with a base coat and two coats of your choice of color.    Then, take pieces of tape and cut out a series of triangles. It should be the shape that you want your first color to be. Then, when your nails are completely dry, put the tape over the bottom portion of your nails. Take your second color and paint that overtop of your entire nail. Wait only a few seconds to pull the tape off, the less time the better. Repeat this for each nail, doing only one at a time. Once they are all dry, apply a top coat. 

Stay beautiful! ;D

DIY: Studded Nails

Want a manicure that's all kinds of fierce? Try out these studded nails! Start out by applying a base coat and two coats of your choice of color. While the second coat of polish is still wet, add caviar beads. You can these off of the Internet or at a craft store under the name "micro beads." Use a tooth pick or thin pair of tweezers to place the beads at even increments along your nails. Once the polish has dried, carefully apply a top coat. And there you have it!

Stay Beautiful! ;D
