Tutorial : Charmed String Bracelet

After finally finding Wellmanson, I've been practicing  my jewelry making quite a lot before getting back to work that is. I'm still hoping I could continue considering a really busy work schedule. Anyway, that wasn't really the reason why I missed posting for the last two Sundays. Connection is really slow these days. I know this is the second time I gave that reason but it's the truth.

Going back to my post, I haven't really tried stringing beads before. You can see on my previous post that I've always been into wire wrapping. I'm just not confident with stringing beads and for some reason, I use to think those kinds are just kids' stuff. Oh well, I think I'm eating my words now 'cause I'm really liking it. My officemate like it too and when I told her I made it, she actually ask if I could make one for her. Now I'd say it's just a matter of combining the right kind of beads to fit any age.

Nail Art Tutorial : Cherry Nails

I saw this from an old nail magazine and thought it would be really cute for the season. The colors are refreshing to look at too. It is a little bit girly because it's all in different shades of pink and the only green color are the leaves but it's never out of season. It's also really easy since these are just cherries. There's also no need for any special tools.

My base nail color is regular baby pink except for the ring finger. I had the same nail polish I used for the cherries on my ring finger with a little bit of fine red glitter polish for sparkle. On my thumb, I put together two round gems with tear drop shape gems for the leaves. For the rest of my nails, I simply blobbed the nail polish with my brush and added a bit of glitter too. You don't have to be too neat on this one. They don't have to be perfect circles or anything and no placement pattern is needed. Feel free to place the blob wherever you like it to be. Finish it off with a stroke a green polish for the the leaves and clear top coat.
