Two Tone Nail Art Tutorial – Plus a GREAT Offer from Julep!

Sources say two tone nail art will be everywhere this summer! You can get a jump on the trend and learn to do a quick and easy design with this two tone nail art tutorial! The bold design uses only a few simple tools and leaves you open to lots of creativity!

The sky is the limit as far as shades to choose. You can use boldly contrasting colors or shades that are just slightly different from each other for a super subtle look. Whatever you decide, the final result is sure to be striking.

Two Tone Nail Art Tutorial

Step 1: Apply one coat of your base color to each nail and let dry completely.

Step 2: Use the Plie Wand Creativity Kit striping brush and a secondary color to draw a line across each nail.

Step 3: Fill in below each line with the secondary color. Apply your top coat (we love the Oxygen Performance Top Coat and the Freedom Polymer Top Coat ) and you are done!

Kate Middleton in Superga Classic Sneakers

If you happened to see any photos of Kate Middleton awarding medals this weekend at The Virgin Money London Marathon, you may have noticed her sneakers. They are the same super-comfy shoes adored by models when they have a chance to step out of the high heels – Superga Classic Sneakers.

It’s not a surprise to see her wearing them, because they are super comfy while still being stylish in classic white cotton. They’re perfect for watching runners at the marathon or for running your own errands around town.

What’s even better? They are NOT pricey! They retail for $65, but you can get them for less – as in only $37.99 here. I’m totally not surprised to see Kate wearing such a reasonably priced shoe, and why not? They look great!

How annoying is it having to dig through a makeup bag to find the products you’re looking for? For me it’s eyeliner that always seems to disappear and I find it stuck down in the seam of my bag.

The user friendly Beauty Butler works with every brand and shape of beauty products. All you have to do is clean the makeup, apply the Beauty Butler sticker and place it on Beauty Butler into any arrangement. Items will remain secure in their place and easily accessible.
