I really like the classic look of these pearl hoop earrings. Simple enough to make, these earrings are an excellent way to use up a broken string of pearls. See how I made them here ...
I spotted these chain tassel earrings at a Mr Price and thought to myself, I can make that ... and that’s exactly what I did - see how here
Ok, so remember in my post of DIY glitter heels, I said that I was on the hunt for more things to “glitterize” ... well, I found the ultimate manicure trend and I am so loving it. The accent ring finger nail trend.
Apparently, the trends comes directly from the Vivienne Westwood runways and Leighton Denny. The “accent ring finger nail trend” is become increasingly popular, with celebrities such as Beyonce and Vanessa Hudgens also indulging in the look. I personally think the trend is a mixture of fun, flirty and a bit of glam balanced with sophistication (it’s subtle).
Get the look
It’s simple really, paint all but your ring finger in the same colour – then use a contrasting pop of colour, nail art or glitter to emphasise the ring finger (only)
To create a glitter accent ring finger nail, you will need:
- Nail polish in colour of your choice,
- Clear nail polish
- Fine glitter in colour of your choice (choose complimentary or accent colours)
- Top coat.
-Paint all your finger nails on your left and right hand, save for the ring finger on your left hand.
-Only once all the other fingers are dry, paint your ring finger in clear nail-polish and while still wet, sprinkle on the fine glitter. The reason why all the other nails are dry is so that the glitter doesn’t stick to them as well...
-Wait to dry, brush of excess and then look for any spots that you might have missed. Repeat the process on exposed bits.
-Once the nail is well covered and dry, brush of all excess glitter and paint over a top-coat to seal.
Just walk into just about any fashion store, and there is almost a certainty that there will me something all glittery. The trend that I am enjoying currently is the glitter shoes, whether it is subtle or over the top. I love how Sarah Jessica Parker wore her Christian Louboutin sparkly pair with a classic and well tailored outfit - so if you were worried about tacky, dont despair.
This project was inspired by these fab Christian Louboutin glitter pumps (pictured above and on Sarah Jessica Parker). My cousin Vanessa and I had such fun putting these glitter shoes together. She did one leg and I did another - we were so impressed by the outcome, that we went in search of other objects to glitter.
The red shoes that I used for the “transformation”, were one of my favourite. While still extremely comfy, I had worn them in so much, that they were no longer fit for a public appearance. See how I made them here
