Sunday Adventure and DIY Acrylics

Hey guys! I KNOW, I KNOW.. I’M LATE. AND I’M SORRY OKAY I JUST. GOSH. I spent the day with Ben (my husband, for you new readers!) and we just enjoyed the day together and with our pups.

I made breakfast (waffles and coffee, my favorite <3) for B and I, which I hardly ever do anymore, and we finally went to a park that we drive by almost every other day, and the dogs loved it (I did, too!). I did, however, get eaten alive by mosquitos. πŸ™‚ Guess it’s that time again! I made tacos for dinner and now we’re just drinking coffee and watching Hunter x Hunter.

Before I get into the nails, here are a couple of favorites from today (taken w/ Canon 80D).

NOW. DIY Acrylic nails! These suckers were a paaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn in the ass. I shit you not. This is my 3rd attempt with these (the Kiss kit!), and it’s DEFINITELY better than the first time, but I want to do this another time or two before I put up an actual tutorial type deal. Yes/no? Let me know. πŸ˜‰


It was super fun, don’t get me wrong, but unless you’ve done it a few times (or have natural nail magic talent shit) then they can look BUUUULLLKKKKKKYYYY. Ooooo girl. BULKY. This time around, they weren’t too bad. I just filed the tops smooth before applying polish. πŸ˜‰ At first I had kept them square, but I just can’t stand square nails on me hahah. SO! I just filed them down to an almond-ish shape, applied my second favorite polish, and called it a day. In person (and photos, to me), they look super natural! I love them. BUT! During my second time, I used up the natural tips… so under the polish I have a French manicure. Not crazy bad, though. I enjoy the random pop of white.

I want to keep this up, because I absolutely HAAATEE paying $40-$50 every time I get a new set. With this kit, it’s about $3-$5 (each time.. the kit runs about $10), depending on how many tips you use (it usually comes w/ 20 each color, but mess ups are possible!). They also sell sets of nail tips at beauty stores (such as Sally Beauty), and keep using the glue, acrylic liquid, and powder! VIOLA! Cheap (but quality c;) acrylic nails!


I hope you guys have enjoyed your Sunday! I know I have. I’m gonna go make more coffee and get some fruit snacks now…. I’M AN ADULT OKAY.
