While perusing Pinterest, I happened across a cool white, yellow, and black fabric swatch from Spoonflower. I love the simplicity of the design and how the bright color and black chevron pop against the white background. I used the image to inspire this nail art manicure and made it my own by swapping the yellow for neon green and replacing the V-shaped pattern with black stripes.

I absolutely love the way my nails turned out. The black and white tempers the neon for a finished look that is fun but not glaring. It is very easy to create and would be a great project for nail art beginners.

Glam Hollywood Hair Tutorial

hollywood-hair (11 of 16)

It’s award show season and if this past Sunday’s Golden Globes were any indication, classic glam hair is still a go-to choice for Hollywood elite. While the style is reminiscent of old Hollywood, there are some modern tweaks. In general, curls are a bit looser and the overall look is a tad less fussy. Best of all, gone are the days of sitting under a dryer for hours waiting for finger waves and pin curls to set, as similar feel can be easily created with a curling iron.

If you are curious how this gorgeous hairDO (see what I did there?) is created, wonder no longer. It’s actually pretty simple and would be fun to wear at an Oscars party or formal event. Want to look like a movie star? Well, heat up you curling iron and let’s get red carpet ready.

The step-by-step Hollywood hair tutorial is after the jump.
