How To Create A Two Tone Manicure!

 

Two tone tips

Step 1: Apply one coat of your base color to each nail and let dry completely.

Step 2: Use the Plie Wand Creativity Kit striping brush and a secondary color to draw a line across each nail.

Step 3: Fill in below each line with the secondary color. Apply your top coat (we love the Oxygen Performance Top Coat and the Freedom Polymer Top Coat ) and you are done!

Fashion Faux Pas: How To Avoid These Common Style Mistakes

Everyone likes to look good, that’s just a fact of life. While we all know not to judge a book by it’s cover, that doesn’t mean that there’s anything wrong with trying to embrace a sense of style and fashion. You don’t need to do it for anyone else either; fashion should be about looking good just for yourself! That being said, style can be a pretty tricky tightrope act. For all of the amazing looks that you can create, it’s just as easy to make a mistake that leaves you looking completely ridiculous. This fear is the kind of thing that keeps a lot of people from feeling comfortable expressing themselves in any kind of significant way when it comes to their clothes. Well, worry no longer, because here is a list of some of the most common style mistakes that you might be making so that you can be sure to avoid them in the future.

Not dressing for your body type

One of the most common mistakes that a lot of people make is that they find gorgeous pieces of clothing that look amazing on the rack but end up looking terrible when they actually put them on. Now, it doesn’t matter what body type you are; there are plenty of clothes out there that can make you look amazing. Every size and shape is just as capable of looking good as any other. The key is to find clothes that complement your shape, rather than fight against it. By paying attention to how clothes sit on your body, you can avoid outfits that seem far too big or small, baggy or restrictive. It’s a fine line, and the only way to figure it out is to be totally honest about what looks good on you and what doesn’t.

Mismatching shoes and outfits

This is such a classic problem for so many people. You’ve got the perfect outfit together, you look amazing, but you can’t figure out which shoes to wear with it. Shoes can make or break a look faster than you could possibly imagine. A lot of people actually face the same problem from the other side as well. Have you ever found the perfect pair of shoes but you just don’t know what you’d wear with them? Things like large boots are particularly tricky for this. Finding over the knee boots outfits can be like mining for gold. You have to go through a lot of terrible looks before you find the one outfit that works perfectly.

Clashing

Just because two items of clothing are both gorgeous doesn’t mean that they’re going to look good when you put them together. The key is coordinate what you’re wearing carefully. If you’ve got a particular piece of clothing that really stands out, then make the rest of your outfit a little more subtle. That way it draws attention to the statement piece without clashing horrible with everything else. That way you can be sure that you’re making an impression for the right reasons.



Chain Reaction: Four Pieces Your Jewelry Box Needs

While many of us spend hundreds, if not thousands of dollars every single year perfecting our wardrobes we often don’t pay the same courtesy to our jewelry. Successfully matching your accessories to outfits takes time, as well as a willingness not only to buy pieces that reflect current trends i.e. statement earrings, chain necklaces and Pandora charm bracelets but also owning classic must-have jewelry that’s fantastic for day-to-day wear and special occasions.

Precious Gems

Diamonds may be the obvious choice here, after all, nothing says style and sophistication like a pair of teardrop earrings, solitaire ring or a sparkly diamond necklace. However, other gemstones such as rubies, emeralds, and sapphires are just as enchanting as well as being a little easier on your wallet. Gemstone jewelry’s very popular, birthstone necklace and bracelet sets are particularly pretty, but it’s also worth noting that not all gems are created equal. When buying precious gem jewelry always ask to see their certificate of authenticity as there’s a vast, thriving market for passing off colored cubic zirconia, or even pieces of glass as the real deal so if the price seems too good to be true then it’s probably fake.

Go-To Necklaces

No matter whether you’re wearing it to dinner, at a picnic with friends or to a gig every woman needs to have a go-to necklace. It’s suitable for almost any occasion; you know it goes with ninety percent of your outfits and elevating them from just ok to extra special as well as bringing the look together. Don’t just stick to single strand, or bar necklaces as layering one, or more necklace on top of each other really makes an outfit pop. Different beads and contrasting metals showcase your unique style, and brighten up even the plainest of outfits including jeans and t-shirt combos that can, on their own, look quite dull.

Tennis Bracelets

Perfect for work, networking or social events tennis bracelets are functional, linear and elegant as well as being a jewelry box staple every woman should own. Not only do they look just stunning by themselves, but it’ll also draw the eye to any designer watch, cocktail ring or bracelet cuff you may be wearing. A diamond tennis bracelet doesn’t really need anything beside it; because it’ll stand out and look amazing completely by itself. When wearing one, do remember to keep your arm free of too many accessories and vintage jewelry, so you don’t take the focus off of this classic, super stylish item.

Stacked Rings

What were once only seen in bridal sets is now common in fashion jewelry, and many stores sell stacking rings, either as pre-designed sets or as individual rings you have the freedom to mix and match. The best ring stacks are those that either complement or contrast thanks to different metals, sizes, and colors as well as adding extra sparkle to a casual, laidback look such as a butterfly tea dress, slouchy waterfall cardigan, and purple ankle boots. Ring stack collections are brilliant as over the years; you’ll find yourself changing up the order, and marking milestones like marriage, promotion and having a baby with new rings.
