Gifted Magazine

I just eased into my morning by drinking coffee and reading Gifted Magazine.

Edited by Ez of Creature Comforts, one of my all-time favourite blogs, this is a well-curated digital magazine, designed to give you ideas for gifts to give this holiday season. As I flipped through it, I saw tonnes of stuff I know the people on my list would love. I just might be placing a few orders soon!

DIY Glitter Nails

These nail strips have quickly gained a reputation for themselves of being a quick and easy way to get a flawless manicure.

From here.

But they are expensive!

So I invented this great nail technique:
1. Paint your nail with clear nail polish.
2. Sprinkle craft glitter all over the nail.This blue is Recollections brand but have used Martha Stewart too and both work great.
3. Let dry. Brush excess glitter off skin around nails.
4. Paint a top coat over the glitter with the clear polish.

You get amazing glittery nails for a fraction of the price of those nail decals. They are very durable! Add a new top coat every couple of days and this manicure will last for days!

Pretty good, hey?!
