Sunday DIY: Marble Mani

Lately we have been feeling a bit torn, office conversation about the insane nail craze has come up time and time again and we just can’t decide whether some of the new over-the-top manicures are totally awesome or borderline cheese…coming from someone who rarely strays from the classics (Fiji in Summer, Wicked in Winter and occasionally Over the Taupe for an any-season change-up) it has been a struggle to have fun something new.  This brilliant stone-inspired manicure from The Beauty Department is PERFECT way to get in the game.  Unique, simple, understated, glamorous, neutral enough not to clash with bright summer prints – and – inspired by jewels…amazing.

We are totally obsessed with beach waves.  The casual cool factor doesn’t get any higher than these perfectly imperfect waves – long, short, blonde, brunette – everyone instantly captures boho chic and sexy cool with the “just walked off the beach and my hair looks sunkissed & pretty damn fabulous without doing a thing” look.  So when I Love. Want. Need. showed us how to achieve this at home with just a few household items, we jumped all over it.  So excited to make some surf spray…let us know how amazing you feel in your new waves!
