Birds of a Feather

When M and I were commenting on all the Spring trends earlier this year, I purposely left one out because I didn’t think I’d ever wear it. However, now that I’m seeing it pop up more and more in stores, it’s beginning to grow on me.

8 Days…Spring Neons

Spring Neons
Bright neons are popping up all over this Spring. From subtle hints to full blown color explosions, neon is a such a fun trend to mess around with this season. Try it out with a bright bottom and neutral top or vice versa. You can even go neutral and add neon accessories, or if you feeling bold match up more than one neon at once!

11 Days…Gradient Style

Gradient Style
Ombre and dip-dyed looks have been in style for a while now, whether it’s on your hair, on your clothes or on your nails; and I think it’s a great Spring look for casual outings. I like the idea of pairing ombre clothes with fringe accessories for a boho-chic look.
I’ve also rustled up a few DIYs for creating dip-dyed/ombre looks on your own. Enjoy!

14 Days…Shades of Beige

Shades of Beige
Only 2 weeks til Spring! My inspiration today is to pile on neutral shades of nude, beige and blush. Pair this with a twisted updo and a flower in the hair for a look that’s ultra feminine and pretty; perfect for Spring.

Manicure Monday – Spring Neons

Spring neons have inspired me to add some color to the basic french manicure.

Step One: Apply a clear coat. Let it dry completely.

Step two: Apply clear tape across the tip of your nail at the diagonal you wish the color to be.

Step three: paint the tips of your nail in whatever color you would like. Let dry completely before removing tape.

Step four: Once completely dry the tape can be removed. You can then remove any excess polish from the nail/ skin around the nail with a Q-tip dabbed in nail polish remover.

Step five: Apply the white tip on the opposite side. I would not lay down tape on the nail for this because it may take off polish that is currently on the nail. If you do not have a steady hand you can remove any mistakes with a Q-tip and nail polish remover.

This manicure is fun to wear and helps remind me that Spring is just around the corner!!

Let me know if you try it out!
