Etsy Finds

Out of everything I’ve missed about having no internet connection recently, I think I’ve missed Etsy the most. It feels so good to be back. Instead of working on my College Summer Project that’s due in next week (I know it’s ridiculous that I haven’t even started there and I’ve already got heaps of work to do), I’ve been spending way too many hours window shopping.

Hand Made Distressed Leather iPad iPad 2 or the Newest iPad (3) Case - Can Be Customized to Fit Any Tablet Case

If I owned an iPad this would be the case for me. It’s a shame that I don’t really considering how much I love this case. It is something that I’ve considered saving up for several times but at the moment it’s either an iPad or a trip to New York next spring. Somehow I think that New York wins that contest.

Early 90s Smoke Jacquard Shirt Dress woven geometric horse print Small

With this I really can’t make my mind up as to how much I like it. Part of me loves it but another part, admittedly slightly smaller is saying no. There was definitely an instant attraction there though.

Spider Gear Steampunk Ring

Normally on an every day basis, if I have my own way I have absolutely nothing to do with spiders, I hate the damn things. They move in such an unnatural way and just look freaky. But when it comes to this ring I think I might be able to make an exception. Rings are one of my favourite things in the entire world and the bigger the better. This ring is simply a work of art. As a mere student I can’t afford it but that doesn’t take away from the fact that this is one of the best rings that I have ever seen.

Hand Dip Tie Dyed Blue Ombre Oversized Ladies Summer Boyfriend Shirt Blouse

This shirt is just amazing. The colour combination is just perfect, it’s not too light and it’s not too dark. I think this seems like it would make a good DIY job.

Chunky Knit Dusty Blue Long Infinity Cowl ScarfThis looks like it has the potential to be the softest, most snuggleable (is that a real word) snood ever. And it’s in such a beautiful colour. Shame it’s summer here in England, I’d feel weird buying something intended for cold weather while I’m busy eating ice creams.

I really have missed this.

Ombre nails

I’ve been wanting to try this out for a while now and I honestly thought that it would be really quick and simple to get it to look good. It was reasonably quick yes, but I think getting it to look really good and even on all of my nails takes some practice, some came out really well others not so.

Seeing as it’s one of my favourite colours, I went for two shades of pink that although in the photo don’t look very pink – I took the photos one my phone so the colours aren’t as good – are in reality quite pink, the bright one can only be described as Barbie pink.

I painted a couple of coats of the bright pink on first. So far so good…

I then used a kitchen sponge to sponge on the lighter pink, which is when it started to get messy. Nail polish went everywhere. I think more ended up on my hands than on my nails.

Finally I used a topcoat to try and blend the colours together, which seemed to really bring the colours out.

I think the more I look at it, the more I’m feeling that this hand isn’t really that bad. It’s not great though but it could be worse. The other hand however is a different story. It’s horrific. I think I should be banned from painting my right hand in future it’s that bad.

Anyhoo, practise makes perfect. Hopefully next time both hands will be more even.
