music of the week

I’m aware this post is late. My tardiness does not reflect my attitude for this feature. I am acutely aware of the discard feature In drafts now. ::rolls eyes::
Pressing on…

I was already in deep with Flume when I discovered there is a new way to enjoy the Australian artist! Yes it’s true- with the duo What So Not. Harley Edward Streten and
Emoh Instead are delivering beat crushing realness. They’re electronic/dance amazingness is making my life complete.
My track fav on Spotify is “High You Are”

scratch nail wraps + flash tattoos

One of my favorite ways to get a flawless mani is with nail wraps. I’ve recently discovered the artfully fun world of Scratch. I chose “Divine Dotwork” by Cally Jo Art for my first purchase with the brand.
I layered Flash Tattoos in Zahra over my ring fingers for a bit of shimmer.

The wraps applied beautifully and the instructions are very simple to follow from the website. I sealed the manicure with CND Vinylux weekly topcoat.



negative space manicure + beauty marks

I’m a pain-o-phobe. Seriously. Like infant tolerance. Reason #1 why committing to a tattoo has yet to happen.

Enter the wonderful world of adult temporary tattoos! The aptly named “beauty marks” with Mr. Kate are beyond fun. I can’t wait to try them all on.

As for my simple nail art, I chose to use small tape strips on an angle. Once you apply polish simply pull the tape up. It’s extremely important to do this while nails are wet. I know it seems scary but it prevents the polish from building a noticeable edge around your lines.
