How To Make Galaxy Shoes

What You’ll need:

  • Plum or Dark purple acrylic paint
  • Navy Blue acrylic paint
  • Light pink acrylic paint
  • Mid blue acrylic paint
  • Light blue acrylic paint
  • White acrylic paint
  • Silver glitter paint
  • 3 triangle 3D sponges
  •  2 rectangle sponges
  • Black canvas shoes (You can buy cheap ones at Kmart or Target)
  • Sticky Tape
  • Papertowels
  • 2 plates
  • clean nailpolish brush or any tiny brush

How To Make:

1) Get your shoes and and put a small squeeze of paint onto your plate. Put all the Blues onto one plate and the pinks and purples on the other. Keep the glitter in it’s pot. Take out the laces of your shoe.

2) On the shoe at the bottom there is a white part which is connected to the sole. Tape the whole of that part so paint doesn’t get onto it. this will make it easier when you clean it up, it also makes it easier to paint without worrying about getting paint onto the small area.

3) With the dark blue paint and your triangle sponge, wipe off some of your paint onto a papertowel so it doesn’t look to bright and strong. Dab it onto a small section of the shoe do the same thng with the medium blue. Make the two colours blend with each other. Repeat the step but with the purples and the light blue until the whole shoe is covered.

4) With the pink you only sponge a little bit in one of the lighter spots to blend it in then with the thin brush draw a little star on top of that with the white. You can do a few small ones around it. To finish off splatter some of the glitter onto the shoe.

5) Wait for it to dry then once it’s dry take off the tape and put the shoelaces back in the you are done! 🙂

Okay, so I’ve started this approximetly weekly nail challenge thing called Nailify This. Autumn or Fall – whatever you call it, has just started in Australia a day ago so the theme is Autumn Ombre! So what do I mean? I mean warm colours in the Ombre style.

If you don’t know what Ombre is look above. This look can be achieved with any colour but I’m using oranges and reds.

You will need:

  • Base coat
  • top coat
  • red, pink and orange nail polish
  • blush makeup pad
  • White nail polish

How To do this:

1) Paint your nails in your base coat colour then paint them all white.

2) Once they are dry grab your makeup sponge and paint a small area in the colour red and sponge a small bit of it on the bottom of your nail (just a little bit) Continue doing this from Darkest to lightest until you get to the top.

3) Wait for all that to dry then clean off the excess with nail polish remover and then [paint your nails with your top coat.

Hope You Enojoy. Please request stuff for me to try in the comments section.

New Stuff for Chinese new Year

9 Feb

I’m part Chinese so I get to celebrate Chinese new Year. I’ve aleready planned what to use my money for – put it in my bank account to save for an IPad mini. Dad says it’s good luck to have new stuff so Clothes Shopping!

The rose,diamond,pearl ring

If you’ve read one of my recent posts this is the rose ring I was talking about. I’m wearing this tomorrow with a denim dress. I got this from Kmart yesterday from the clearance section for jewelery at kmart. This is a cute ring to wear with anything girly, you could also wear just the rose, just the pearl or just the diamond. They sell rings similar to this at Lovisa, Diva and Equip for around $5-10 so $0.50 is really cheap. If you’re not really the kind of person who wears pink they have another one with the rose that’s black and the diamond in silver.

Denim Dress from GAP kids

At the start of the year my mum and dad bought me this denim dress from GAP kids to wear for the summer. I decided to save this for Chinese New year seeing that I’ve worn all my new clothes 😉 I like the lace detail at the bottom of the dress and it’s also very comfterbale its not too short for older girls and not too kiddish either.

I also got a pair of Pajamas (no photo shown) that says Sweet Dreams on it. It came in a two pack so one for me and one for my sister. It’s a really cute summer pajama set which includes 1x sleeveless top, 1x short sleeve top, 2x pairs of shorts. Igot the short sleeve and the sleeveless says Believe in your dreams. There was a sale at Target where the pj’s were $16.00.
