I finally got around to redoing my glitter boots with permanent glue. I repeated all of the same steps as the original DIY only this time I used E-6000 glue purchased from Michael's craft store. It's an industrial strength clear adhesive that can be used on practically any material. My one tip for this glue is to use a really short, strong-bristled brush because this glue, being industrial strength, is harder to spread than the Elmer's glue I used last time.
Not only are we major fans of her Shoe Mint collection, but we're also fans of her style. She easily pulls off super-feminine for red carpet events and just as easily puts together super cute casual wares. If you aren't already watching, tune in to see Rachel on Hart of Dixie on the CW--we likey!
If you're into nail art, like I am, then you need to follow/read/stalk Camille's blog. It's in French, but that's what Google Translate is for...She knows how to create original nail art that really stands out, but isn't over the top. Once I can amass all the necessary colors and supplies I will try them for our Manicure Monday.
Another manicure that was much more difficult than I anticipated!! But I really liked it when I first saw it, and wanted to try. Had I thought in advance to translate the original post, I would have learned that she used tape, and I used a paintbrush which wasn't really a user-friendly method. Using the tape also creates stronger lines, so if you're going to try it yourself, I'd use the original method.
I know we're a liiiittle bit biased, but who doesn't love St. Patrick's Day?! It's the only day of the year where people wear tons of "Kiss Me I'm Irish" gear, drink copious amounts of alcohol in the name of the Irish, and dream of leprechauns with pots of gold...However, unless you are luckier than the rest of us, those pots of gold aren't easy to come by, so in honor of one of our absolute favorite holidays we're offering 25% off the entire store for a week.

The original color of St. Patrick's Day was blue.
Leprechauns in Irish folklore were in the form of an old man, wore a red or green coat, and enjoyed partaking in mischief.
Leprechauns spent all their time busily making shoes and storing away all their coins in a hidden pot of gold located at the end of a rainbow.
Leprechauns, like genies, if caught by a human had the magical power to grant 3 wishes in exchange for their release.
The very first St. Patrick's Day parade took place in Boston, not Ireland.
Many people wear green to avoid being pinched.
Legend says that each leaf of the 4-leaf clover means something: the first is for hope, the second is for faith, the third for love and the fourth for luck.
I was going to attempt a window pane design, but I think I need a little more practice with my left hand painting before I do that one. So I decided that doing a neon tip french manicure would be a little easier to accomplish, and it was! I applied a base coat, (2) coats of the Cocktail Bling, (2) coats of the Cute as a Button on the tips, and finally a glossy top coat. What french manicure combos have you tried?
