We searched Pinterest and found our favorite Halloween "Do It Yourself" projects to share with you!

  • Mix 'n' Match Patterns for #ManicureMonday!

    Most salon goers tend to stick with one, or two, colors when getting a mani/pedi; however there are some risk takers out there who love to experiment with new and exciting patterns! You have ten finger nails that act as a blank canvas, waiting for you to fill them up with beautiful and unique nail art! Let's take a look at some of the most popular mix and match nail patterns:

    Coral pink mix n' match nails

    How adorable is this mani!? The base color, which is a coral pink, is the perfect color for summer time! The jewels on the middle nail will shine in the summer sun, as well as the silver embellishments located on the pinky and thumb nail. The white polka-dot and stripes are the perfect mediums to balance the nails out and make sure they don't look TOO over the top!

    Black, white, and gold mix n' match nails

    The Roo Girls are LOVING this beautifully done mix and match manicure! It reminds us of the Flapper Era, which is extremely popular now due to the release of The Great Gatsby remake. The baroque design, located on the thumb, is also a trend we look forward to seeing A LOT of this fall. The gold polish adds just enough glitz for the nails to be noticed. We couldn't have asked for a trendier mani!

    Blue and floral mix n' match nails

    The mani above is a bit more simple than the previous two; but it is still a mix and match mani, nonetheless! The manicurist decided to keep the middle, pinky and thumb finger a bold blue and add a little spark of gold to accentuate the gold glitter in the pointer finger nail. The ring finger design can't hep but to remind us of a Betsey Johnson design! A lovely yellow with pretty pink flowers; these fingers are runway ready!

Make yourself some microwaveable popcorn, pick up some ice cream and call it a day! You could also invite some friends over to have a "Netflix day," once a week, to ensure you finish out each season.

    If you're heading off to college this year, you can search for some great dorm DIY's! College is very expensive, so something as simple as what's pictured above would cost about $10.00 and look adorable hanging on your dorm wall. All you need is crayons, glue, a blow dryer and a canvas board. First glue the crayons to the board in any order you prefer then simply hold the blow dryer over the crayons until they start to melt. This simple project allows lots of room for you to add your own flavor and spice it up! If you still have a few more years until college,  this would be perfect for an "Art's and Crafts Day" with a group of your friends.

We've been loving all of the ways you can rock neon in your outfits and on your nails, but with ombre being such a big hit lately, too, we asked...why separate the trends?? So, here's something we've been completely obsessing over: the neon ombre manicure!
