I have the best boyfriend ever.

So lets get away from tutorials and beatuy for a second (even though it is beautiful).

I told my boyfriend to pick me up a tape measure (as I had to measure myself after insanity) after work. Well he comes home, takes the tape measure out of his pocket and let teh end fall in my hands. And there it was, the ring i've been dying to have. (It is a promise ring, not engagement) I am the happiest girl in this world. I can't wait to grow old with this guy.

Here we are last year for homecoming, I love this picture. Our personality shows so much through this picture.
 And then again for Easter.So cute

Splatter nail tutorial

Hey guys, today i'll be showing you how to do the splatter nail technique (as seen above). It's really easy and super fun to do. You can pick any colors you want (I went with white and black as it matches with nearly EVERYthing).

You will need:
     1. White nail polish (first coat)
     2. Whatever other colors you want
     3. Vaseline
     4. A lead pencil
     5. Q-tips
     6. Fingernail polish remover
     7. Sheet of paper

Step ONE: You will need to get the blowing tool ready, so do this first. Take a lead pencil apart, and simply cut off the tube that contains the lead. Now you have your blowing tool. Easy huh?

Step TWO: Apply vaseline to the sides of fingers. (this makes removal way easier)

Step THREE:  Paint all nails white. It's not a big deal if it gets on sides; it's about to get WAYYY messier.

Step FOUR: Using a tray (I used back of a mirror) place a dap of whatever color you chose (or first color if you chose more than one). 

You will then take your fingernail polish remover and add it to your fingernail polish. (this will thin out the polish so it will spray out of the blower) DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP, OR IT WILL NOT WORK. 

Now mix mix mix. 

Step FIVE: Dab your "blower" in the polish. Make sure the end is closed with polish. (also make sure there is none dripping or an excessive amount of polish or it will create a puddle on your nail)

Putting your mouth on the other end, face it towards your nail and blow fast. This will create the splatter effect. 

You will continue this on each nail (I will not bore you with a bunch of pictures of me doing every single nail.) Apply a clear coat and you're all done :)

There you have it; a cute and easy splatter nail. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and don't forget to follow this blog!! Comment if you have any questions.
