PolkaDotPhoneCase

Materials:

- Beige/champagne colored phone case

- Blush, black, and metallic gold nail polish (We used Licorice, Muchi Muchi, and Good as Gold by Essie)

- Pointed Q-tips

-Scissors

-Disposable trays

-Triple Thick Glaze (optional)

 

Directions:

1. Cut the very tip off  the pointed end of three Q-tips to create a flat, round surface at the ends

2. Starting with light pink, shake the bottle of polish until well mixed

3. Pour a dime-sized amount of polish into a disposable tray

4. Dip a Q-tip into the polish and start to add dots to the phone case. Remember this is supposed to look like strewn confetti, so the more randomly the dots are place, the better!

5. Let the polish dry completely

6. Repeat steps 2-5 with the black and gold polish

7. (optional) After all polish has completely dried spray the case with a thin layer of Triple Thick Glaze. Be sure to do this either outside or in a very well-ventilated area! Let the glaze dry completely before using.

CelebrityCrush of the Week: Jeremy Irvine!

Jeremy Irvine

Who’s 6’1″, with dirty blonde hair and blue eyes, an English accent, and the total ability to make girls swoon with one simple smoldering glance? Jeremy Irvine, that’s who! We are kind of smitten by his boyish charm and, let’s be honest, those baby blues don’t hurt. This handsome newcomer found himself at the helm of Steven Spielberg’s “War Horse,” making a name for himself in Hollywood, and now you can catch him as the adorable airman with a secret in “The Woman in Black 2″. What’s next for this cutie? He’ll be starring in the film adaptation of the best-selling young-adult book series, “Fallen,” playing everyone’s favorite fallen angel, Daniel Grigori! Count us in!
