Two nail polish colours (Ulta3 – soft hydrangea, Mode – glitzy glam)
Sticky tape or masking tape
Paint on base colour.
Lay a piece of tape diagonally across your nail. With your second colour paint in the area of your nail that isn’t covered.
Remove tape carefully.
You could add other angles to your nails and even overlap them. Be creative!
I was at the beach earlier this week and it inspired me to make this simple shell statement necklace.
Three or more shells
Measure the length of your string by putting it around your neck and deciding where you what it to sit. Take into consideration the you will need extra to tie the string onto the clasp.
Thread the string through the shell’s hole. I was lucky enough to find shells that had natural holes in them. If you didn’t happen to find any like this then maybe you could drill a hole? I’m not sure how shells would cope with that though.
– Let me know in the comments below what you would do to create the hole.
Now attach your clasp. The clasp is optional, you might like to tie a knot at the back, but I prefer to be able to take it off more easily. Tie a double knot on each ring and cut the excess off.
Sweet, simple and complete.

I decided to create this hair scrunchy because as well as wanting to wear it out and about I heard hair scrunchies are great to wear to bed. They are better than normal hair ties because they are not as tight and wont pull on your hair.
My hair is thick so I made the width of my scrunchy thick too. Depending on your hair type, it’s up to you how wide you want it. Make sure you add a centimeter or more of seam allowance.
Pin to hold the material in place and cut along the edge of the material.
Fold the material in half, inside-out, and pin before you sew so it doesn’t slip out of place.
Sew the pieces together one centimeter and a half in from the edge. Don’t forget to back stitch on both ends!
Turn the material back the right way around. Iron it so it’s flat.
Attach the safety pin to the end of the elastic.
Work out how tight/long you want your elastic.
Tie a double knot and cut off the excess.
Sew the gap closed with your needle and thread.
Style in a ponytail or bun.
