Cand Cane Stripes Party Nail

9 Dec

I probably should of waited a day or two to take this picture because of course the excess polish has cleaned off…Image and it looks x8243 better… but whatever.. I’m not a manicurist, you get the point. But I am broke and have a ton of polishes from my boxes to experiment with.  I have to say, I do see improvement since my last attempt at nail art.

Just use tape 🙂

DIY Candy Cane Bath Salts

7 Dec

Things You’ll Need

  • 2 cups Epsom salt
  • ½ cup sea salt
  • peppermint essential oil (check eBay!)
  •  red food coloring

1

Instructions

Place one cup of the Epsom salt in a small mixing bowl and add ¼ cup of sea salt. Add a drop of peppermint essential oil and mix thoroughly

Repeat the process in a separate container. Add the red food coloring to the second mixture and stir to combine.

In a wide-mouth glass jar, spoon a layer (I used a funnel made of a a cut Gatorade bottle) of the first Epsom salt mixture into the bottom of the jar. Make a layer of the red salt mixture over the white mixture. This will give the bath salts a striped look. Continue layering the salts until they are all used.

How easy was that?!?!?!
