Manicure and Pedicure CTMH Style!



One of the jokes I always tell my kids is that they can have anything they want in the world as long as all the materials to make it are already in my craft room.  Last night my DD had an awesome testing night at DMW Martial Arts and I wanted to do something special for her to show her how proud I am to be her Mom.  Today I dug through my craft stash and treated her to a manicure and pedicure CTMH style!

We painted her finger nails dark blue and then added some White Daisy rub ons from a connection club reward package I had on hand.  Do they look cool or what?!?  Totally funky and totally HER.


For her toes we painted them with a light blue and then added GLITTER RUB ONS - these things look SOOOO cool in real life.  After I applied the star and rubbed the Olive Green glitter in we decided it needed some definition because the background color was kind of light.  I used an extra fine tip sharpie to outline the star and then added three of our Bitty Sparkles to each of the big toes.  When I added a top coat the sharpie ran just a little so next time I'll try and have a paint pen on hand for outlining but the sharpie did work pretty darn good.  All the nails were coated with a nice top coat to seal everything in.  For the price of one trip to the salon for JUST a paint job and ONE flower I can purchase a huge 3 pack of our rub ons AND a whole package of bitty sparkles to do this LOTS of times! So go dig into your rub on and sparkle stash and see what YOU can do for an extra fun and extra cheap manicure/pedicure. If you give this a try let me know - I'd love to see a picture of what you do!

Matierals Used:
