HEART NAIL ART DIY | westover manor

It’s the home stretch to Valentine’s Day, so I figured we should wrap it up with a little nail art.
I am way into nail polish at the moment… mostly because it’s the only thing keeping me from obsessively biting my nails, like usual. I’ve gone almost a full month without taking my nails down to the numbs, so I am very pleased to be able to show them off to you today!

tools //
Nail File
Paint brush with a pointy tip
Red & White nail polish
Base coat
Top coat

how to //
Begin by sculpting your nails with the nail file.
Paint on your base coat, followed by one to two coats of red nail polish. Ensure that the red is very dry so it won’t accidentally get in your white nail polish.
Using the paint brush make a V shape with the white nail polish.
Go over the V a few times to fill it in, or carefully wiggle the paint brush a bit to give each half of the V a thicker, more heart shaped look.
Allow the heart to dry and paint on your top coat.


Happy Valentines Day!

The NY Melrose Family, Embrasing Change,
Because Shanna Said So


I bought some fabric awhile back to make a skirt.
Like, eight months ago type of a while back.
We’ve since, had our twins 12 weeks early, moved, and gotten caught up in life.
Plus, my amazing seamstress neighbor who volunteered to help me
is now an hour away, in good traffic,
and we have yet to make a date to finish our project – entirely my fault.
So in the mean time… I figured I could spare a few strips of fabric for a
fun and funky headband of sorts.
Tools //
A few strips of fabric – 24″+
Hot glue + glue gun
How To //
1. Tear/Cut your strip of fabric.
*24″+ makes for the best sized flowers*
2. Fold the strip in half & iron it flat.
3. Tie a knot at one end.
4. Begin by wrap/twist/wrapping your strip around the knot.
*the looser the wrap the larger the flower.
I tucked the tail in as I went, you can trim it too.*
5. Use a bit of hot glue as you wrap/twist/wrap to hold the shape.
6. Wrap until you’ve used all the fabric.
*I folded the last bit of fabric at the end
onto the back to make a smooth-ish surface.
Very scientific, eh?!*
7. Add a felt backer and a pin and wear it as a broach,make a few and use them as a headband…
The sky is the limit!
*I used the hot glue to affix these to a piece of lace*xoxo
