DIY {10 day} manicure


This has Literally Changed my life!

I kid you not.

I used to get my nails done every 2 weeks at 10 on Friday, for years…

then the shellac revolution came and oh my I loved it!

i mean color is in

color is hot

and with shellac I could have color for 2 weeks

THEN….. I found this little combo and ta da I am in LOVE

It lasts longer, comes off with a quick swipe

and you can use any color you choose!!!


I am ecstatic to tell you that it is so easy

Here’s how:

1. Gelous  advanced nail gel coat thin base coat allow a few min to dry

2. whatever color you like 1 or 2 coats depending on polish

3. light layer of gelous

4. top coat of Out the Door top coat

give yourself about 30 mins and it works beautifully! Saves you TONS of money and with being able to use any polish the possibilities are endless!

{Buggie} Recipe holder

Looking for an adorable Mother’s Day gift?

How about this cute recipe card holder!

For Mother’s Day my toddlers made their Mommies recipe card holders. I made my mom one of these back in the 70’s and she still has it!! It was so easy, fun and really inexpensive!
I bought the wood cubes from Hobby Lobby for .79 cents, I had the clothes pins and paint so they were FREE. I spray painted the cubes as well as clothes pins allowed to dry and then used the kids finger prints to make cute little bugs. I hot glued the clothes pins on the back of the cubes and the note said ” I BUZZ YOU!”
You could easily use this to display pictures as well! How cute is this?

Happy Mother’s Day!!
