DIY - Daisy Nail Art

While perusing YouTube for some cool Avon videos, I came across this nail art tutorial from Avon UK for Spring nails. I love art and appreciate the work people put into their nail designs but my own art skills are well just plain bad. I saw this daisy tutorial and thought hey maybe I can do that. 


First I gathered my supplies. A base nail color, white polish for the petals, yellow for middle, and a dotting nail art tool. TIP: If you don't have a nail art tool to make dots, you can put a straight pin in the eraser of a pencil.


I used a light blue (Avon Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel in Alaska) base but I think any pastel color or even black would make a cool base. I used Avon Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel in Iceberg White for the petals and Wet n Wild Wild Shine Nail Color in D'oh! for the middle. You could even do neon flowers for a little retro "flower power" look. 



How did it go for me? Pretty well considering my skill level. I only put the blue base on a couple fingers because the humidity at my place was absolutely disgusting. It took the polish forever to dry. I like the look without a base color too although I would do a clear coat on top for a little shine.  Happy ManiMonday everyone!

Copycat Look - Lucy Hale Buenos Aires Style


mark. Brand Ambassador, Lucy Hale modeled this look in Magalog 6 which introduced mark.'s Instant Vacation Buenos Aires Vibe collection! The Take It or Leaf It Tee was a must have for me. The print is so fun and where I'm from a super casual tee is a Summer staple. The Hint of Bling Ring Set was a last minute add to my order and I'm so glad I did! In Mag 6, the Throw Some Shade Sunglasses are a special offer of only $5 with $20 Instant Vaca purchase! You can never have too many sunnies!

My Review
Top: I love the leaf print (it continues around the back btw) and the quality is very good! The top is very boxy, cropped, and wide which I must admit is not my favorite style. I would like it more if it was a regular shaped graphic tee. I will definitely get use out of it this Summer though. I have some style ideas in mind. I ordered a small.
Sunglasses: Cute! Worth the $5 for sure. They even come in a little mark. logo drawstring bag so they won't get scratched in my purse.
Rings: LOVE! The style, the color, the bling are perfect! I ordered the size 6.5 and they are slightly big but I think if I work with them a little I can bend them tighter. 



Get The Look - mark. Take It Or Leaf It Tee; mark. Throw Some Shade Sunglasses; mark. Hint Of Bling Ring Set; Forever 21 Matchstick Stud & Ear Pin Set; Payless shoes similar; Avon Speed Dry+ Nail Enamel in Red Red; Avon Totally Kissable Lipstick in Naughty & Nude; JcPenney shorts similar.
