♥ DIY Sweet Editorial Lashes & My NOTD ♥

Before we get into this, let me just say that I completely understand and deserve your judgement for even bothering to post such a simple tutorial that you could have figured out on your own with a simple inspiration photo x)

In fact, my inspiration came from this tumblr post.

That's all I wanted to address ^^~
Let's get started!

You will need:
  • a long, lush pair of lashes
  • ribbon in a color of your choosing
  • flatback pearls or rhinestones
  • tacky glue

Start by tying your ribbon into a simple bow. From there, pull the ends of the bow until it's teensy.

Repeat. Lay both of your bows flat and iron them on a low setting.

Retrieve lashes and other decorations of choice. I decided on these pink nail decoration pearls~

Retrieve tacky glue and (perhaps) nail decoration tweezers. I found these useful because I'm terribly clumsy, but most people have hands that are more graceful than my own x)

Spread a little bit of tacky glue across the top of the back of your bow.

Place on the center left if you're decorating the left lash, or the center right if you're decorating the right lash. Do the same for the flatback pearl, but place it on the very outer edge.


Here are my nails from last week, since I thought they turned out really well:

The photos were taken after 4 days of wear, so please excuse the chips T_T.

This was my attempt of this Cynful Nails nail design:

Not bad eh?
Hers are obviously better, but this was my first time actually trying to copy a nail design. I have obnoxiously tiny hands and nails, so it's kind of hard to translate another person's design onto my own fingernails T_T.

That's all for now, see you guys next time ;)
