Mini Roses were one of the first styles of nail art that ever I learned. This design is way easier than it looks and is sure to attract lots of attention. I love how the rose pattern looks like old, floral wallpaper, while simultaneously feeling modern and fresh.
1) Base Coat
2) Top Coat
3) White Nail Polish
4) Red Nail Polish
5) Pink Paint
6) Green Paint
7) Medium Sized Dotting Tool (or the end of a paint brush)
8) Small Paint Brush
1) Begin with a base coat on all of your nails.
2) Start the design with two coats of white nail polish.
3) Place a medium sized dotting tool into the pink paint.
4) Create a bundle of three small dots together.
5) Continue this pattern across the entire nail.
6) Dip your brush into green paint.
7) On each rose, paint two small leaf shapes outside of the petals.
8) After cleaning off the brush, use it again by dipping it in red polish.

10) Once dried, finish off with a top coat to seal the design in place.
“Oh boy!” Who here loves absolutely anything Mickey Mouse related? This Mickey silhouette design is so simple, yet so cute! It’s perfect for both beginners looking for something easy and more practiced artists who want a design they can complete quickly. Make sure you read to the bottom of the tutorial to see a second version of the look!
1) Base Coat
2) Top Coat
3) White Nail Polish
4) Black Paint
5) End of a Large Paint Brush (an extra large dotting tool will work as well)
6) Medium Dotting Tool (the end of a smaller paintbrush or pen works as well)
1) Start by preparing your nails with a base coat.
2) Next, paint your nails with two layers of white polish.
3) Take the end of a paint brush (or an extra large dotting tool) and dip it into black paint.
4) Place a dot on the bottom corner of your nail.
5) Using a medium sized dotting tool (or a smaller paint brush), re-dip in the black paint.
6) Place two new dots directly above the first large dot. Make sure these dots touch the large dot, but not each other, to create a Mickey Mouse silhouette.
7) Finish with a layer of top coat.
As an alternative, use this Mickey Mouse design as an accent nail to simple polka dots. Make your polka dots nails red and white for a real Mickey-inspired look.
The holiday times are drawing near, and the gift DIYs are coming in! It’s really easy to buy someone a gift from the store, but when you’re on a budget and want to get something thoughtful, it’s more fun to DIY the gift!
Mug DIYs as a gift are super easy and awesome because everyone uses cups and you can customize it in many ways! I saw a lot of cute mug DIYs, but they either involved Oil-Based sharpies or stickers I just didn’t have the time to get!
With a quick stop at the local dollar store and a bit of raiding through your make-up bag, you can make this really amazing, expensive-looking mug!
DIY WATERCOLOR-EFFECT MUGS
WHAT YOU”LL NEED
Ceramic mug (any shape or size)
Nail Polish - preferably 2+ colors
HOW TO MAKE IT
Fill the container with warm water - make sure it’s not filled all the way, so the water won’t spill over when you dip the cup in!
Pour some of your nail polish colors in the container one at a time. (I used two, but I can see it working with more colors!)
Note: for me, the nail polish got on the container, and I had to toss it out. Make sure it’s a disposable container!
Use the toothpick to mix the colors into an interesting pattern one stroke at a time! (the nail polish is thick and won’t mix together if you don’t stir too much)
Dip your cup into the mixture - I stayed away from dipping the top where people drink
Optional - Use the toothpick to design with the clumps of nail polish on the mug or left in the container for extra customization!
Ideas - You can drag the clumps downward into a spiked design like the pink or dot them around into flowers like the blue!
Let dry for 2-3 hours.
Hand wash these only! Otherwise, put on some dishwash safe Mode Podge as a sealant.
The mug will smell like nailpolish afterwards obviously, but with a good (careful) wash, the smell should go away.
Wrap these mugs up, and now you have the coolest mug gift ever! ♥
IDEA: Wrap them with hot cocoa mix (and marshmallows?!), coffee, or tea bags for those special friends!!
For this look, I just sponged OPI My Gecko Does Tricks over China Glaze Manhunt. Super easy took about 20 minutes. And, featuring as an accessory, my favorite perfume ever Indigo by Nest Fragrances. The bottle itself is a work of art!

After cleaning, filing, and shaping the nails and applying a base coat:
apply two thin coats of blue polish
using a big dotting tool and some white polish, make two big dots down the center of the nail, one at the tip and one at the base
using a smaller dotting tool, make a row of dots going down the center of the nail (in between those two big ones)
use the same small dotting tool to make two small dots on either size (horizontally) of the original two big ones (this is a total of 4 dots - one on either side of the dot at the base of the nail and one on either side of the dot at the tip of the nail)
use the big dotting tool from step one to make two big dots on either side of the row of little dots (so basically two big dots in the empty space on the sides of the nails)
Request: “may I request a Credence x reader smut
where reader is Queenie’s apprentice and she starts to be able to read bits and
pieces of what Credence is thinking and slowly finds that Credence’s thoughts
are not nearly as soft and innocent as he leads on.”
Credence Barebone x Reader
darling, try to seize that thought. It helps to picture a fist, grabbing onto
the details of it.” Queenie coached, placing supportive hands on your
squinted, seeing the thought, but almost as if it were only in your mental
peripherals. Tina sat patiently, continuing to focus on the one specific
thought for you to capture. Then you saw it. Your hand, reaching out. You
grasped the thought, and upon contact the information came flowing into your
thinking about…” You giggled. “How much you’d rather be doing something else.”
scoffed at her sister, to which Tina just shrugged with a sorry smile. “I’ve
got a lot of things to do. It wouldn’t hurt to practice on other people.”
