Zoo animal inspired nail designs!!

So we are going to the zoo soon. I am really excited. I decided to do some zoo inspired nails. I almost recorded it but I figured, it's pretty simple.

I often get asked "How do you find time to do your nails so often???"

I always use this nail dryer to speed up the process. If you like to change your nail design or color often, this is such an awesome purchase. It saves you so much time!!!! (can be used on feet too) With this nail dryer, this ENTIRE design took me 15 minutes!!!! That's why you gals always see me with new designs so often ;)

Here's the link in case you can't see it up there.

So here is the design:

Written instructions below.
Pinky nail (Inspired by blue frog in the picture below): Blue polish base, let it dry, dot with white polish in center of nail, let it dry, dot orange over the white, let it dry, dot black in the middle of the orange to simulate eye. (optional: add green on the top and bottom of nail for reptile effect)


Ring finger nail (Tiger inspired) : Orange polish base, let it dry, one swipe of the white polish to create a stripe in the middle, let it dry, yellow polish swipe on each side of the white stripe, let it dry, add black stripes as pictured.

Middle nail (Cheetah inspired): Yellow base, let it dry, using a semi-brown polish and a tooth pick, draw semi-circles sporadically.

Index finger (aka pointer finger- Zebra inspired): White base, let it dry, black polish stripes

Thumb nail (Flamingo inspired): Pink base, white art nail polish stripes upward, resembling feathers.


Wow, this is a bright picture :)




I think these are pretty simple to do. Here are some tutorials that may inspire or help if you can't do these on your own. I wish I would have seen this giraffe tutorial before. It's so cute.











Have fun this weekend!

La Doble De Selena

So, I got a lot of messages from people telling me about this contest on Channel 34.
The contest was to find a look a like of a very famous singer named Selena Quintanilla Perez.

I was reluctant to apply because it is for a Spanish show and I know they usually want EXTRA sexy content on their show. But, I did it anyway. I submitted a video of myself singing Como La Flor.



Did I get chosen? Nope.

Here are the finalists.

If you are interested, go and vote.
I already voted for my favorite choice.

If I were to change

If I were to change my channel name, which do you think would be most fitting?
If you could let me know why you chose that option, even better.

1) IrisPinUpHair

2) IrisPinUpDoll

3) BeautifulHairDos

4) BeautifulHairStyles

5) GirlyStuff

6) Other (Please make a suggestion)

What I do

I make hair tutorials on YouTube. But I created this blog to connect with my fellow writers/bloggers. I've also created a myspace account, but I don't like the format for blogging. I'd rather blog here. As far as something to note about me: I rarely have will power when it comes to dieting. I'd rather eat what I want, but in moderation. I like girly stuff, but I don't like doing my own hair. I rarely do my own hair, so if you saw me in the street, you'd probably not recognize me. But if you ever saw me, I would love it if you came to say hi. Thanks for reading my blogs.
