Happy Sunday! Celebrate with some nail stickers.
Okies dokies folkies (hehe), one of the kids that I nanny, 2nd, is turning 13 in one week. YES, THIRTEEN! Like where is the cute 10-year old that I met when I started? This is insane.
Anyway, 2nd and I are nail polish freaks. She is the overly girly one out of the three girls and we bond over nails. This year I’ve taken a break from buying presents for birthdays and instead wanted to do some “we time” with each kid. I started with 3rd in August so this is the last birthday this year that I’m going to be doing that for. It was a great plan, but also one that never actually happened. Last year I did we-time and presents. That was a lot. But we-time hasn’t been able to happen this year.
So for 2nd, I decided that I’d make her some nail stickers. We can have a little nail painting session and that can be our we-time. It kind of breaks the rules because we won’t be alone, but at least it’s a little bit of something.
I decided to try making my own nail stickers at Christmas and it really worked well! I’m not sure if I actually made it part of my video, but here is a video showing the steps so that you can make your own nail stickers too! Sorry for those who watch my nail videos to get all the juicy gossip from my life, there is no gossip today. I’ll try better next time.
Okies, so this is what I was trying to do:
And this is what I ended up with:
I’m not sure if I like them or not. I might actually peal all of them off and start again. But I am for sure going to try to do the clouds as well.
And for those wondering, I also did my own nails. There has been a little confusion over what exactly I designed on my nails, so I’m not going to tell you what I was trying to accomplish. I think it’s just better that way. But I guess they are cute…ish…they might last the day without being painted over…
