DIY Wedding Flowers Nail Art!

Many people get married in the summer! The weather is nice and love is in the air! Weddings already cost an arm and a leg.  So instead of going to the nailshop, I have a tutorial for you that you can do on your own and is perfect for your special day! 

Check out the step by step tutorial to get these beautiful wedding flower nails!
(via falseeyelashes)
Items you will need:
1 Base coat polish
1 Gold nail polish
1 Pink nail polish
1 Top coat
Ceramic rose rhinestones
Nail art crystals bling bling

1.) Make sure you shape your nails and make them neat. Add a base coat of polish once they're shaped.

2.) Add 1-2 coats of gold nailpolish to your nails.

3.)Apply a pink nailpolish to the top left hand corner of your nail just like the picture. 

4.)Stick 3 of the ceramic rose rhinestones on the border of the pink polish.

5.) Then you will stick 3 of the silver rhinestones next to the rose rhinestones. Leave a little space between each silver rhinestone.

6.)Then go back and add a gold rhinestone where you left the spaces next to the silver rhinestones.

7.) Add your top layer coat over the nail.

8.) Then you're done!

Isn't this a lovely and elegant way to do your nails for your wedding day?! It's also a really pretty nail look for any occasion and it's really easy too! You can switch up the style to however you want with different kinds of rhinestones. I love nail art!

The Hair Chronicles: 3 Ways to Tell If Its Time For a New Weave!



Ladies we love our weaves!! For some women, it is all that they wear. Nothing wrong with that. But we must keep it up!  Weave is one of the things that add to our beauty. It can keep our heads warm in the winter or add that thickness and fullness that we always wanted!  But because I love you all so much, ladies we must know when it is time for a new weave.  Here are 3 ways to know it is time to hit up your local beauty supply store and get you a new weave! 

#1: Your own hair no longer covers the tracks:  If the hair that you leave out in the front is no longer sufficient enough to cover the tracks, then it is time! No matter how much you flat ironed, permed or press the hair you left out, if your own hair no longer covers the tracks, it's time for a new weave!

#2: Your braids are no longer attached to your scalp: If you have so much undergrowth and your tracks are hanging on for dear life to the braids then it's time. If you can slide a #2 pencil comfortably under your braids, then it is time. In other words, if you get to the point where you have to wear a scarf or headband to cover up the undergrowth, then it is time!

#3: Your weave has lost its life:  When you first purchase your hair, its flowy, bouncy, shiny, full of life.  But if the curl pattern is gone, it does not move when you shake it, or its just flat and dull, ladies, it is time for a new weave!


Ladies there are affordable weave brands out there, there are half wigs or wigs, that are just as good and convenient for us weave lovers too.  But we must maintain our sexy and keep our weaves right! Halle-loo!
