Along with a stylish outfit and killer makeup, you’ll need some festive nails to complete your Valentine’s Day look!  Instead of getting your nails done for your special night, I found three different designs you can try out for yourself.  I think they’re fairly simply to do even if nails aren’t your thing!

  • If you like going all out, then the design on the right is for you! Chelsea Crockett - Love Nails I stumbled upon it on Pinterest and love it.  If you have a steady enough hand to attempt it, give it a try!  You might even be able to find nail stickers if you’re not artistic enough.  I’m in love with how festive and creative it is!   
  • If you like to keep it simple, I recommend painting your nails white to start off.  Then, add a black or red heart on your ring finger!  You can even add some glitter on top to make it pop.
  • I love using super thin nail polish brushes to decorate my nails.  It makes creating a design SO much easier!  Take one of these and paint the tip of an arrow on your middle finger.  Then finish it off by painting the end of the arrow on your ring finger to create the full arrow illusion!  Use either pink or red as the base and paint the arrow in white.  It’s so cute and outside the box!        

Which design are you going to rock this holiday?  Practice your artistic ability and give one of these a try!

Henna tattoos have been around for decades.  For those of you who haven’t heard of henna, it’s an ink that is modernly used for temporary tattoos.  Some women in the 19th century first used the ink to dye things such as hair, skin, and clothing!  It’s a beauty statement unlike any other!

Chelsea Crockett - Henna DesignHenna ink can last anywhere between 1 to 4 weeks, depending on where you buy it or where you get it done.  When you first apply it or get it applied, the ink is a thick dry paste.  After a few hours, the paste is scraped off, leaving a design stained onto your skin!  The ink is light brown at first, but darkens to a black as the days go on.

You can even buy henna ink and do it yourself!  There are several stores that sell Henna, you just have to look around at different indie/earthy stores.  Usually it’s not too expensive and the quality is pretty good!  Some come with stencils or you can come up with your own design.  If you’re not the most artistic person, you can get a henna tattoo done professionally!  You can look up henna stands nearby or other places you can get them done.  They’re super cute and fun to have for a couple of weeks!

Enjoy! – Chelsea

Vans are definitely a new trend I’m starting to see everywhere.  School, the mall, the movie theater, the park, no matter where I go it seems tons of girls and guys have caught on to the trend!  You can find Vans almost anywhere such as Journey’s, JC Penny, Pacsun, Zumiez, etc…  The coolest thing about them is that people have found out how to make their own designs with these shoes!

  • Galaxy Vans.  Galaxy Vans are super easy and fun to make!  It also prChelsea Crockett - Galaxy Vansovides an activity for you and your friends to get together and create!  All there is to it is purchasing a pair of plain navy or black Vans, pink, blue, and purple fabric paint, and a sponge for applying your paint.  Dip your sponge in the blue paint and apply all over your shoes!  This is going to be the color you put most on your shoes.  Then to get a more “galaxy” look, add purple and a little pink on the shoes as well, overlapping the blue.  After that, take a small paint brush and apply tiny white dots around your shoes in place of the “stars.”  You can even attempt trying to paint actual stars, whatever you’re able to!
  • Create Your Own.  This one is much easier.  Purchase a simple pair of white vans and decorate them however you desire.  Color, paint, or draw whatever you want!  Add polka dots, stripes, zig zags, whatever suits you.

I can’t wait to see how all of yours turn out!   Drop me a comment and let me know!  Links to get a pair to start your creation are below!

Good luck!
