MusicMusical Muse: Nicki Bluhm

 
I first discovered Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers on Youtube. A friend of mine, who knew how much I loved Hall and Oates, sent me the band’s cover of “I Can’t Go for That”. Let’s just say they had me at the kazoo solo (watch the video below, you’ll know what I mean). 

Nicki just released her solo album Driftwood last moth, and is on tour now! Check out her website for more goodness!

Whether you’re more of a royal blue-loving lady or you’re tied to turquoise, we have lovely shades of blue to keep you cool through the last days of summer. Monochromatic looks are classic and never dull, so be bold and don’t be afraid to mix your hues. A great way to get the monochromatic look is to style it ombre.

BeautyManicure Monday: Nautical Nails with Syl and Sam

Hey ladies, 
Summer fashion always means flirty little dress, denim cutoffs and flowy tops… but another trend that always screams summer is nautical fashion. The sailor inspired stripes and seaside inspirations are just so perfect for those warm months & we’ve decided to capture it in a cute manicure this week. We took the classic stripes and anchors and threw it together in a crisp red, white, and blue.

Here’s what we’re going for:

What you’ll need:
- blue base coat
- white striper
- red base coat
- quick dry top coat
- microbeads
- a toothpick

Start with a few coats of your base colour. We did blue nails with a red accent nail.

Then using your striper brush, apply thin horizontal stripes of white to your nails to get that cute sailor stripe look!

Do all of your nails with stripes but skip your accent nail

Apply a generous amount of top coat and then work quickly for the next step

Take your toothpick and just touch it to some clear polish. Then touch your toothpick to a single microbead to pick it up! You can read a bit more about microbeads in our studded nails tutorial.

Now that you’ve picked up a single microbead, you can touch it down onto your wet nail and it will stick right on! Work quickly and pick up beads one at a time and form a little anchor on your nail.

And there you have it! A cute manicure that has you ready for yachting… or maybe just a day on the docks :)
