Hunger Games Mani

Taking a break from scrapping for right now.  I've been watching a lot of nail art videos on YouTube and stumbled on two very awesome designers.  Today I bring you a mani from one of them.  The mani is inspired by the book 'The Hunger Games.'  The title character is given a makeover and they paint her nails with flames (I'm completely shortening the storyline, I know).  The creater of this design is cute polish (who made the bunny mani I did for easter).  Until I figure out how to post videos, search her designs out on YouTube.

I used for this one Nail Polish: China Glaze Stone Cold (Hunger Games inspired color), Sinful White, Sunset, Morning Breath, and My Day.

Steps 1 & 2: Base Color Coat and Outline of Flame

Step 3, 4, & 5: Fill in white outline with My Day (red), Sunset (orange), and Morning Breath (Yellow).

Finished with a top coat. OH! For my thumb I added some glitter polish, just to accent the flame a bit. :)

Thanks for looking.... And may the odds be ever in your favor!

Easter Craftiness

Just a quick posting of some easter crafting goodies.

First up, I found a neat idea on Pinterest with dying your cracked eggs.  It makes them looked marble-ly.  It adds to my awesomeness of my deviled eggs.  Can't wait.

Next up is this cute little mani I found on YouTube.  It's by cutepolish.  I made my ring finger a little chick to make things neat. :)

Have a Hoppy Easter!!!

Thanks for looking!!!

Angry Birds Birthday Invites and Thank You Cards

A coworker asked me if I could make Angry Birds invites for her daughters upcoming birthday party. Making no solid promise, I went onto Pinterest for some help. I found a site where a lady had free Angry Birds party decoration clip art. I focused on the birds for the girl and of course glitter. :) 
I hope she likes them.
