Dip dyed hair

30 January 2013

So, dip dye is very popular lately, I remember when I fell in love with this, it was in the Summer of 2011 when I start my tumblr. I thought it was everywhere then, but I was wrong, now it is everywhere. Fashion bloggers, models, celebrities, we can see this wherever we go, I love it so much. I do have it and it was a great decision.

  • Light Dip Dye

But now I'm thinking of going a little bit bolder, like blue, pink, purple.

  • Bold Dip Dye

If you love this bold dip dye but you're afraid you're not going to like it or don't like the commitment it brings, I have great news for you!
My solution for you is: hair chalk. Hair chalk pastels only stay in your hair until you wash it, it is very simple, easy and doesn't ruin your hair in any way.

I bought these pastels on ebay and I'm anxiously waiting for them to arrive. Do you want me to do a tutorial in how you use it and the results? Tell me in the comments.
Also tell me if you love this "trend" or are you sick of it? And if you love, which color do you want to dye your hair? :)

Nail art

16 January 2013

        I think I have a problem and that problem is nail polishes and nail art, I love love love it! Every type, every colour, every pattern. But the major problem is that I kinda suck at it. I try, but always end up with something completely different, it drives me crazy so I always end giving up... 
I'm going to show you my favourites: 

Gladly, people understood how hard it is to do this and came up with an awesome idea - nail polish stripes! 

I seriously thank this, this was made for us (people who don't have the ability or patience to do nail art). WE THANK YOU!

What about you guys? Do you like nail art or you prefer to keep it simple and natural? Tell me in the comments. :)
