OMG! CURL YOUR HAIR WITH SOCKS!

Standard

OHMYGOSHOHMYGOSH! Good morning everyone! I just discovered the greatest thing, EVER! This amazing this is how to curl your hair with…..socks! It may sound silly, but it is the greatest way to curl your hair without heat, I swear! Here are the steps to get amazing heatless curls overnight!:

Step 1:

The first step is to get socks. The longer and thicker your hair, the more socks you will need. I did mine in two layers but that is really uncomfortable to sleep in, so I suggest just doing one layer of socks..

Step 2:

The second step is do spray a small section of hair with water (I just use an empty body sprayer as a water sprayer). After your hair is DAMP, NOT DRIPPING, you are going to take the sock and place it at the half way mark of the section of hair.

Step 3:

The third step is to leave the end and curl it around the sock.. This is important because to get the perfect curl, you must curl the end at the right time (AKA the next step…)

Step 4:

The fourth step is to curl your hair around the sock, and while your doing this, start to curl the end around the sock. This is key to making the curls perfect.. I think that if you have more than the length of your middle finger of the end once you curl it all the way that you should re do it.

Step 5:

The fifth step is to tie a knot with the sock, so the two ends of the sock are going to tie together to make a knot, I suggest you do a very tight knot because you have to sleep in them, and you don’t want them to slip. And don’t worry about not being able to get them out, because they are really easy to untie in the morning! 

REDO STEPS 2-5 UNTIL YOUR FULL HEAD OF HAIR IS FULL OF SOCKS!!!

Water Marble Nails!

Standard

This is a professional Water Marble, but this is what is should look like. 🙂

Hey guys! What a bad fall day we are having, dark and rainy… how lovely!! Anyway, everyone loves nail polish right?? I know I LOVE it. Here is an idea of really easy DIY nail design. This does take a bit of time and creativity, but trust me, it is worth it  🙂 (Please note that I DID NOT take the pictures I am posting on this particular post… So please remember that they are not mine, but the helpful instructions are!! 😉 )

Here’s the WATER MARBLE NAIL INSTRUCTIONS! 🙂

What you will need:

-A medium sized plastic cup (preferably one you wouldn’t mind having damage!)

-Clear gift wrapping tape

-2+ nail colours (they don’t have to be the same brand or maker 🙂 )

-Distilled/Bottled Water that is room temperature (Tap water works too but it may not give the best results)

-A Sharpened Wood Pencil

-Paper Towels

Steps To Sucess! (And AWESOME Water Marble Nails!) :

Step 1:

Using the clear gift wrapping tape, take a piece and wrap it horizontally around your finger, right under the cubicle..After this, take a longer piece of tape and start putting it on vertically until you get to the top of your finger, then you are going to turn to the right and go over the skin behind the tips of your nail. Once your done this, go downwards until the bottom of this longer piece should connect with the part of shorter tape. Repeat this on all 10 fingers, this matters quite a bit, so if you think it isn’t good enough, do it again 🙂 . This is the first step. We do this so when you dip your finger into the polish, you don’t get it all over your finger, and it gives a nice finishing look.

Step 2:

Now you must prepare your nail polish and water! To do this, take your lightest colour choice and drop 1 drop into the water (which should be in the glass). You can tell if this project is going to work if the colour starts spreading. After it speads, do the same with the 2nd lightest, then the 3rd and so on. 5 colours are probably the most I would put in! Once you have done each colour once, repeat this step two more times! This will add more colour when you put it on your nails, and it adds more detail 🙂 PLEASE MAKE SURE THE COLOR SPREADS BEFORE YOU ADD THE NEXT ONE! 🙂

Step 3:

After all the colours have been added 3 times, you are going to take the sharpened pencil and make your design! You can do this by putting the tip directly on the surface and then dragging it across to the opposite side. Keep doing this from different angles from any place (you can do it from the middle, top, bottom, sides….)  Don’t do this step too many times because this can cause the different colours to blend too much…

Step 4:

Now it’s time to get painting! Or should I say dipping….. Now, I should probably tell you the disappointing news now.. You have to do Step 3 for every nail 0_o. I know, it sucks, but once you get going, you will get used to it. Anyway, what you need to do is VERY CAREFULLY dip your nail into the water. Keep it in for 5-10 seconds, then CAREFULLY pull it out again. Once this is done, take a look!! Once you have admired your first marble nail, take the pencil once again, and spin it around in the water. This will take all the old nail polish off the surface and you can then start again! Once you have got all the old polish, wipe the pencil on the paper towel to get it all off.

Step 5:

Once all 10 nails are marbled up, wait for them to dry. You want all your hard work to be saved, so PLEASE make sure they are 100% dry before doing this next thing. Well, once they are 100% dry, you can slowly peel off the tape. It works best if you take off the longer, vertical piece first, then take off the horizontal short piece second. Throw out the tape and paper towel and VWALA* you have marbled nails!!!
