Hey Beauty Babes!
Today I’m doing something a little different (hence this being posted on a different day) – I’m taking part in the Pintester Movement!
She had challenged her Pintestes (hehe) to try and re-create one of the many pins that she had tested. Me being me, I chose something from her “Cocknails” video series (she paints her nails whilst drinking cocktails – it makes sense).
Now I decided not to film this, so I just took pictures instead.
Here is my attempt at the cocktail:
2 oz. light rum ( 2 shots/60ml)
1.5 oz. triple sec (1.5 shots/45ml)
1 dash aftershock cinnamon schnapps
4 oz club soda
Ok, I looked at that list and went – what the hell is club soda?! Once I found out it was Soda water, I decided “screw that” and changed it to lemonade.
Also, it appears to be impossible to get Cinnamon Schnapps in this country, so I put in a dash of Cinnamon Whiskey that a friend had left in our fridge!.
Now if you look at the recipe you will notice just how ridiculously alcoholic this thing is! I think my substitutions worked quite well!
So now that I’m nice and drunk, it’s on to the manicure!
Heres the link to the original: http://www.spektorsnails.com/2012/06/neon-straw-nails.html
For my version I used:
– Manicare French white nail polish (as my white matte decided to die)
– Acrylic black paint
– Natio Nail polish in Valentine
– Straw (of course).
First you apply the white base, and let it dry.
Then you dip your straw into a little bit of the acrylic paint, and place it in your nails in some sort of a pattern
After that has dried, repeat the process with the second colour (I chose the red as its a great contrast).
And you are done!
Oh so sexy isn’t it!
I encourage you guys to get out there and try and all those pinterest pins that you have been meaning to do since the day pinterest launch. Also, go on and check out the Pintester site – its good for a laugh!
