DIY Wink Wink Mani Tutorial

I told you I wanted to keep expanding the topics covered here this year… and I’m following through! I’m excited to start bringing you more manicure tutorials! HOORAY! Especially when they look as good as this one… wink wink! This mani is surprisingly easier than it looks, and the full how-to is below! Plus, BONUS! To get prepped for more beauty content in 2015, I teamed up with Target to get a fancy-pants, organized vanity working in the studio!

Since I’m hoping to do more beauty shoots this year, I gave a corner of the studio a little makeover to create a vanity! Little containers with nail supplies, a toothbrush holder to hold makeup brushes, a mirror (FINALLY!) and a few other things to keep us from running down the hall to the bathroom 45 times during a shoot! I’m pretty jazzed about how it turned out. Here’s my vanity essentials:

Hand Towel / Large Oilcan Bath Canister / Small Oilcan Bath Canister / Toothbrush Holder / Soap Dispenser / Pedestal Bowl / White Mirror

Now, that I’m all organized, about these nails… Eyes are everywhere. Like, literally. They seem to be quite the trend now. Are eyes the next pineapple!? 😉 I’m on board. So Alex stepped in again to create a flirty little “wink wink” manicure that I am OBSESSED with! Lashes for days, folks. Let’s get to it.
