Get a little cup of water and soak your triangle makeup sponge. Squeeze the sponge out about 80% leaving it damp but not wet. 5. Line the tip of the sponge up with the This will keep the polish from soaking up tip of your nail and when you’re ready, too quickly. give it a med-firm press. Bounce it up and 2. Apply a single line of the darkest color toward the edge of your sponge. The first time, I went over the line twice so that there was enough polish to transfer to the nail. 3. Next, use the second darkest color and make another line above that one. Coat it twice also. Keep going until you build up your 3-4 colors. NOTE: you want to work somewhat quickly so the polish doesn’t dry out. 4. Dab your sponge on a piece of paper and you’ll see the colors together but not quite blended.

If it’s a little off each time you bounce it up and down that’s actually good because it blends the colors even more. 6. Re-apply a line of each polish color to the sponge for every nail. If you work quickly, you can probably re-apply polish to the sponge for every other nail. Now you have pretty polish but a mess around your nails. 7. Take a little polish remover + a paint brush and clean up the sides and aroud the cuticles.

My favorite trends for nail polish this year are ombre, polka dot, French, sequin, and glitter. I love the way you can mix and match different styles together to make one gorgeous manicure! Try painting one nail with glitter while the others are all solid. Or attach sequins or studs to your thumb for a fierce and chic look. Metallic is another fabulous way to show off your style! It is shiny and ultra trendy.

Fashion is a wonderful way to be creative and to express your style. Scarves, heels, dresses, skirts, frilly tops, skinny jeans, studs, blazers, and jewelry are all part of the fabulous thing we call fashion. I have taken the quote: “Everyday is a fashion show, and the world is your runway.� -Coco Chanel

to heart, meaning everyday should be a reason to dress up and be fashionable. Everyday is an excuse to show off your style to the world. You don't need to be going somewhere super fancy to throw on a blazer and matching heels! You may feel like you will look weird wearing heels to school, but come on! Show your school that you know how to dress well! Show them that you know fashion and you have a passion for it. Be confident and rock that runway!

My fashion board experience started in the month of March last year. My friend told me about it and said it was perfect for me and what I felt called to do at that time.

Every month at our meeting, we talk about the current and upcoming trends of the year. Sometimes we have a group challenge that we have to “compete” in. One time we had to dress a mannequin in I was so excited! I applied as quickly a certain trend and the winning team got theirs put up in the store! as I could and made my fashion project and happily turned it in. Then a month latWhen we are in the downtown er in April, I received an email saying I was store, when all of the local stores meet one of the lucky girls who got an interevery once in a while, we have speakers. view!

I was ecstatic, but my heart was beating out of my chest. But, the verdict was good! I had been accepted! My first meeting was in September, but I was not able to go because I was in LA. So my first meeting that I could attend was in October. It is nice to be able to meet girls with the same interests as I do and to get to know more people.

Place the clip in front of you and line up the starfish (one or more) underneath the clip in a pattern that will be attractive and fit on the clip. 2. Glue your starfish to the clip. Use the craft glue. Be liberal with the glue wherever the starfish will be in contact with the clip. Hold the starfish gently in place on the clip for about three minutes to let the glue set. 3. Allow an hour for the glue to dry. During this time, do not touch or move the clip. 4. Pour a small amount of craft glue onto a piece of wax paper. Your glue puddle should not be more than about 2 inches in diameter. 5. Accent your starfish hair clip with the rhinestones. Use the tweezers to pick up a rhinestone and touch the back of the gem to the glue on the wax paper. Then press the gem gently onto the starfish. 6. Dry the clip for 24 hours before you wear it.
