Bright Styles

  This is my first time using China Glaze nail polish. I was surprised by the matte finish and streaky look. I chose this poppin’ goldenrod color to help usher in a fresh spring. The ring finger is accented with a purple flowers sticker! It took almost 4 coats of this polish to get an acceptable opacity level. I also wish the brush were a little more flatter and wider for easier application.

The nail wraps I did 2 weeks ago were still intact and needed a huge amount of remover to get the darn things off. Lasting power is crazy good, I would say.
  Craft time! I painted a simple wooden 4×6 picture frame with acrylics, then cut some nicely patterned craft paper and glued it to the back. I then used the Urban Decay tattoo glitter set I have to create a golden dove silhouette. Any loose glitter is protected by the glass! This piece will serve as minor decor to a bigger craft project I’ve been working on. I am waiting on an Amazon gift card in the mail so I can realize this fanciful visualization I have in my head right now. It involves upcycling and major crafting! Stay tuned!  My Pangur cat LOVES hanging out in the sink. She chose the guest bathroom sink this time as a first so of course I had to photograph this for the archives.

Rose Box – Tuesday Night Crafting!

20140611-134423-49463407.jpg

I took an old, unused cardholder and jazzed it up! I painted the exterior and interior with a neutral taupe and lined the inside with a dark brown. Acrylic paints go so smoothly over wood surfaces. After waiting for it to dry, I applied my special Urban Decay rose stencil, swiped it with glue and poured a copious amount of purple glitter! I used a fan brush to sweep the extra off and unstuck the sticker template. There you have it–a refurbished jewelry box, gift box, business card holder or playing cardholder!

Glitter Craft

20131209-194643.jpg

Got this sweet Urban Decay glitter set from my good friend when I visited her in St Louis 2 weekends ago. Even though the box clearly said Body Art, I definitely turned it into craft art. I took an old watch box, painted it in black acrylic paint and did my thing with the stencil and glitter set. You can definitely see the Urban Decay personality come through here ;). I mean what other company would give you glittertastic colors and skull stencils?

Yes, my bathroom counter will be covered in glitter until I drench it with Scrubbing Bubbles cleaner…worth it! Now I love this new jewelry box and can’t wait to dazzle another otherwise container!
