♥ Sally Hansen Haul ♥

So I bought these stuff quite a while ago but I’ve only had the chance to post them here now.

Priceline had a promotion for Sally Hansen products a while ago where if you spent $20, you can get a bonus package which was worth over $53.30 RRP. I am a sucker for nail polishes especially Sally Hansen stuff and I was in need of a new top coat since my old one have become really gooey even when I try to mix in some nail polish thinner. It’s lasted me over a year so I’m happy to buy a new one.

So here’s what I really bought:

Problem Cuticle Remover and Fuzzy Coat in "Wool Lite"

Problem Cuticle Remover and Fuzzy Coat in “Wool Lite”

I really wanted to try these two products as they intrigued me. I have heard really good things about the cuticle cream and fuzzy coat, well, I’m just a sucker for nail polishes and I really wanted to try this new concept.

The Fuzzy Coat in Wool Lite definitely creates a very unique texture! I think you’d either love it or hate it. I’m not sure how I feel about the other colours in this line though. Not really my cup of tea. The formula, like all the other Sally Hansen nail polishes, I really love!

So I spent about $20 on both of those together and so I was eligible for the gift pack:

  • Everyday Strength Nail Board
  • Nail Growth Miracle Salon Strength Treatment
  • Complete Salon Manicure
  • Mega Shine Extended Wear Top Coat

I have yet to try them except for the complete salon manicure in “Get Juiced” which is a bright pink/peach colour and the Mega Shine Extended Wear Top Coat which was my now-gooey top coat I mentioned before. So far, Mega Shine is my favourite top coat.

“Get Juiced” is a very happy colour, perfect for spring. The formula though is TO DIE FOR. If they weren’t priced so high (RRP AUD$14.95), I’d stick to this line for the rest of my life. Maybe.

Next I want to try the Sally Hansen Insta-Dry line. I already have the speed dry drops from the line but I really want to try the base and top coats!

Have you tried any of the products mentioned above?

Lots of Smiles,

DIY: My Neighbour Totoro Shoes

Hello hello so this was my Sunday Arvo / Rainy Day project yesterday – TOTORO SHOES!

I’d seen a few pictures on Pinterest on grey shoes decorated with the Totoro theme. Being an anime & totoro fan myself, I decided to give it a go on these AUD$3.50 K-Mart shoes. Really you can’t go wrong with a $3.50 pair of shoes. Worst case, it looks ugly and you throw away $3.50 with some experience on DIY-ing a shoe.

Here’s how I did it:

Materials:

  1. A pair of grey shoes,
  2. White paint (I used acrylic paint since that’s what I have at home)
  3. Black Sharpie
  4. Black ballpoint
  5. Toothpick
  6. Paper
Spirits Inspiration

Method:

TOTORO:

  1. Prepare the picture of Totoro you want to add to the shoe i.e. I used this image. You can either print or do what I did: trace this straight from my screen on to paper. It turned out to be the perfect size for where I want to put the drawing.
  2. Cut out the totoro outline
  3. Trace the outline onto your shoe. You can be as detailed or as simplistic as you want.
  4. Mark dots on the shoe of where the eye, nose, mouth are supposed to be. I did this by placing the template on to the shoe and then folding where I have to mark. I marked the top of the eyes, a dash for the nose, and a dot at the top, bottom, left and right of the mouth.
  5. Finish the outlines with ballpoint – this means draw 2 circles for the eyes and connect the dots on the mouth and I added the teeth lines here
  6. Paint the whites and wait to dry (time of drying depends on paint type) – eyes & mouth
  7. Outline everything with sharpie!

SPIRITS:

  1. Draw hairy black blobs – I drew them like how I would draw daisies since the sharpie bleeds a little.
  2. Draw eyes on the blobs using a toothpick (or you can use anything with a point) dipped in a little bit of your white paint.
  3. Wait for it to dry and you’re done!

Here’s the results:

Front of the shoes (Totoro Face!)

Back of the shoes (Spirits!)

This probably took me half an hour to do not including the wait time. Outlining the drawing takes literally 1 minute.

This was a very easy, quick & cheap DIY. You can also use this method not only to do Totoro shoes but for any design!

What do you guys think?

Lots of Smiles,
