Sweet Floral and Dots Nail Tutorial

Sweet Floral and Dots Nail Tutorial 

I started with all pink nails

Then I added all white crescent tips on every other nail.
I've seen tutorials where people use those hole punch reinforcement stickers to get a nice cutout at the bottom, but I just free handed it because I'm super lazy.

then on my leftover pink nails I added white polka dots while my white tips dried

When my white tips dried I added pink polka dots with white smudges in the middle

then with a darker pink I did what I call "sloppy broken spirals" in each pink & white dot

add little green smudges for the leaves and a good clear top coat and you're done!

after staring at my nails while making this post I decided to add gold bands to the bottom of my crescent tips

Okay, now I'm done ;)

Pictures from the park

Our day started out a little rough. Boz must have woken up on the wrong side of the bed because he was in a HORRIBLE mood and was quarantined off in our bedroom so his grump didn't spread to the rest of us. After a few minutes of alone time Boz suddenly reappeared in full Buzz Lightyear costume asking his little space rangers if they would help he defeat the evil Emperor Zurg (Boz's bad attitude)

I made pancakes to celebrate us getting our happy daddy-man back!

Clemmie (the joker) had peanut butter and jelly pancakes, Bowie's pancake was plain.

he loved it

we walked the long way to the park so we could stop and pick up some picnic food
I waited outside with Sid dog and the kids

picnic time

my mouth was stuffed with salad when Boz took this picture

after we ate is was time to play!
sand toys!

Clementine needed help digging wet sand for her castles

Boz had the telephoto lens on our big camera (which at the park makes him look like a total creep) 
I'm never sure if he's taking a picture of me or the kids so we end up with a lot of ~inquisitive face~ pictures

It was such a nice day! I wish we could find a way for Boz to work from home so we could have more days together in the sunshine.

Another Wedding!

the first wives club
So we had another wedding to go to this week. It was actually for the same couple who got married in Tahoe, but this was a bigger party for all of their friends and family.

here's what I wore:



without cardigan

polka dot dress with polka dot tights
hair and makeup 
Daisy hair pins: DIY
Dress and Shoes: Forever21
Cardigan and Tights: Target
Unicorn Pin: a birthday gift from Tom&Kiki

as soon as we walked in the door and ran over to find my girlfriends

so happy

they had these "bookmarks" on the tables as gifts for the guests.
I made sure to thank the groom for the pasties on the way out.

There was so much rump shaking at the end of the night! I wish I got to dance with all of my beautiful friends more often. My face hurts from smiling so much, and I think my legs hurt more today from dancing than my head does from drinking. ;)
