For my Sunday night manicure I decided to try out color blocking on my nails in sort of a stained glass pattern. I started off by painting my nails white and then used neon green, neon yellow, tangerine, teal, and gold polishes to create an array of colors on my nails.
After that, I used my Orly thin striping polish to outline the nails and separate the colors. I left some white on the nails to incorporate it into the design. The result? This fun stained glass pattern on my nails that I will be sad to remove. I think this is a manicure I will continue to experiment with this spring and summer, since its so bright and fun looking.
We had a reeeeally productive Friday morning at work today and played around with different kinds of braids! (modeled by KDP & named by MMM aka the floozy with the sunhat & martini at the bottom)
1. French ‘n Center
Grab 3 strands just in front of the crown of your head. Begin braiding like a standard three section braid adding hair to each section along the way until at nape of neck. Finish off with a standard three section braid. Use an elastic at the end.
2. Headband Heroin
Braid one small braid on each side of head, wrap to opposite side across head and pin in place covering bobby pin with hair that is down.
3. Scaley Chic
Pull hair to side of head, split into two section (one in each hand), grab a piece from the outside of section of the left hand and cross it to the right section, then cross an outside piece from the right section to the left hand/section. Continue repeating. Use an elastic at the end.
4. Braid me Beautiful
Begin by making 2 French ‘n Center braids on each side of your head. Once each braid reaches the nape of your neck combine them and make one standard three section braid down the center. Use an elastic at the end.
5. Katniss Everdeen
Do a dramatic part on one side of your head. Begin doing a French ‘n Center on the side of your head. Be sure to pull tight so the braid stays in place. Work your way at a diagonal across the back of your head. As you cross the nape of your neck, switch to just a standard 3 strand braid to finish it off. Use an elastic at the end.
6. Work to Play
Follow steps from Katniss Everdeen, then wrap the three strand braid portion into a bun at the nape of your neck. Pin to hold into place.
