An Easter Outfit + DIY

Happy {Hoppy} Easter!!!! 
The Mister and I {and our two sweet girls} had a fabulous weekend! 
Not only did we do a Route 66 meet up with two of our favorite people, but Matt's family drove into town for a good ol' family holiday! Easter is such an exciting time of year and our church somehow incorporated a little number from "Grease" {yes, the movie!} into the message! Super creative and I'm pretty sure it's never {ever} been done before! That's probably why we love them! :)
And since one of the funnest part of Easter is getting a new outfit {which mine is not} I thought I would share mine {plus a little sumfin, sumfin at the end}!

Shirt: Similar, Belt: Here, Shoes: Here, Earrings: Similar, Lipstick: Mac Sheen Supreme - Happy Hibiscous




Now comes the DIY part!
Let's zoom in a little bit on the nails {more specifically, the ring finger}:

After a little experimenting today, I figured out how to get this fun, vintage, lacy look! 
Ready?! Here's what you'll need:

Lace
Mod Podge
Paint brush
Nail polish {I used Essie Turqoise and Caicos}
  • Step One: Cut a piece of lace the size of your fingernail {or nails if you want to do more than one}. You want to make sure you use lace that doesn't have too much design so the color underneath shows thru!
  • Step Two: Paint fingernails with two coats of nail polish. When the second coat is almost, but not completely dry {I let mine dry for about two to three minutes}, press on the piece of lace that you have cut out. 
  • Step Three: Use a paint brush to cover lace with a thin layer of mod podge. Let dry.

Ta-da!! You're left with these fun puppies:


Wha'd ya think?!

Your Easter outfit is adorable! I'm dying over your earrings-they're so cute.
And I love your fingernails. The color is beautiful and that lace overlay is very pretty. Um, definitely trying that business out! :)
