Easter nails (#newbie) Tutorial


Hi, so I just need to make perfectly clean that...... if you are expecting some type of nail artist or make up artist tutorials, sadly..... you're in the wrong blog. I'm no artist but I love to do my nails, hair and makeup. I'll post some of my NOTD and FOTD (nails of the day and face of the day) as tutorials, but they will be my everyday and not so skilled version. My Tutorials are free of: hassle, talent  and done with a very limited budget. I follow, admire and use as inspiration several nail and makeup artist. I love! really love their work, but if I would try to do intricate tutorials as their, mine would actually suck...... and badly. Lets say this is how most of my attempts to follow tutorials end:

Now to the tutorial itself:

1.) You will need:

  • Base-coat and topcoat
  • Pastel nail polish (yellow, baby blue, light pink, green and lilac)
  • White polish
  • Polish remover
  • Dotter (I used the opposite side to the bristles from an old craft brush)
  • Elf concealer brush and cotton-balls.

2.) Clean your nails with a cotton ball soaked in nail polish remover,  then apply the base-coat and let it dry. Paint each nail with a different color (as many coats as you judge necessary), for the next step allow your polish dry completely.

3.) Take your white polish and some disposable or plastic container and let some white polish drip on it. Only 1 or 2 drops, it usually dries fast. Once you think the polish seems or feels sticky add more white polish.

4.) Take your dotter and soak it on white polish.

5.) I like to start putting the first dot in the middle of my nail and from there, the next one goes in and so on; but you can apply dots anywhere. Here goes the tricky part: the perfect dot depends on how much pressure you apply to the dotter each and every time. I let it soak on polish, then firmly but carefully press against my nail for big dots for small ones the dotter  faintly touches my nail. After 2 or 3 dots clean your dotter/brush with polish remover and cotton.

6.) Apply  topcoat.

7.) Take your elf concealer brush soak it on polish remover. Carefully start cleaning your cuticles and the area around your nails. Take your time!!




And voila, super easy and cute nails for Easter!

Remember all those years making boring sandwiches for the family lunch boxes, well now Funbites make those plain sandwiches look jolly and enjoyable.Children actually look forward to some homemade lunch, weird enough my husband enjoys this clever device as much as our kids do.

Enjoy cooking  the Funbites way, Review.

Funbites is a smart device, created to simplify your life while making food fun to eat. The monotonous every day ham and cheese sandwich can be made into a creative and delightful  food experience,  Funbites come in 3 different shapes: Squares, triangles and hearts.

The company was kind to send a press sample. I was given the opportunity to try the heart shaped and  I honestly can say, since the Funbites arrived with the mail, I've used it everyday in one way or another. The cute gadget has 2 parts : the curved blade and the matching popper that keeps your hands clean and the food untouched.

There are so many things you can do with the Funbites, I've used it to cut: sandwiches, bread for toasts, fruits, cheese, omelettes, pancakes, flat-bread pizza, burgers, frittata, cake-sheets, piononos, brownies, waffles, quesadillas and so many others, this lovely sandwich cutter is really easy to use. Funbites makes your kid veggies totally tots friendly, children between 5 to 13 enjoy solving puzzles, teens and adults just love cheerful meals.

The fun food is designed to make the pickiest eater enjoy their food, it doesn't matter what it is and they will overlook the fact they are eating healthy veggies and not junk food, the cutter makes the perfect bite-size pieces allowing children and adults to eat with out complications.

Fresh Kidz deodorant from Keep It Kind

Fresh Kidz deodorant from Keep It Kind

Fresh Kidz is a 24 hour protection deodorant for kids and teens. It doesn't have some of the harsh chemicals that other deodorants have. A lot of parents are looking for more natural products not just for themselves but also for their children. Fresh Kidz is aluminum, paraben, and alcohol free. 

Here is a little about the product:
This deodorant has been specifically designed for young teenage skins. Containing natural ingredients, it also provides effective all-day protection by inhibiting the growth of bacteria, the cause of body odour, whilst still allowing the skin to breathe.
Age from 8+
Roll-on 50ml
Un-fragranced
24 hour odour protection
Dermatologically tested
Suitable for all skin types
Does not mark or stain clothing
Does not block pores
Not tested on animals
Suitable for vegans

I received a new product thats is marketed for girls specifically compared to the unisex product that has been offered in the past (and still will be available) Featuring a pink British flag.  The product comes in a small package that would fit in a pocket or opening on a backpack that is palm sized and easy to hold. 

The lid is a screw on lid which I love because who likes having their deodorant cap coming off and smashing deodorant everywhere! It has a roller ball so that you have to roll it on your skin to apply the product. When applied to the skin it leaves a wetness for a moment till it dries. The smell of the product is unscented but it smells like clean to me and provides a clean feeling.
