Hello Spring!


Happy April everyone! Although spring has officially sprung, it still doesn’t feel like it where I live – as I write this post it’s snowing 😦 To make it feel a little more like spring, I decided to do a bright and cheery Easter themed mani  full of bright pastels and completed with a little bunny 🙂 I love the way  it turned out! What do you guys think? Does it feel like spring where you live?

Thanks for reading! ♥

Sunny Sunflowers


Hello lovelies! Today I have a springy design to share ^_^ I saw sunflower nails recently on Pinterest and it totally inspired me to try out the flowers! I usually only do roses on my nails, so this was a little different, and I have to say I’m really liking it! I went in more abstract direction with the design, and I also added a green ombre to my ring finger and thumb. What do you guys think?

Thanks for reading! ♥

4 Fun Ways To Upcycle Newspaper

ImageHey guys! So does anyone get newspaper anymore? Well, if you do, don’t get rid of it just yet! Today’s post is all about upcyling it. Newspaper is actually one of my favorite things to craft with – it’s super easy to work with and is so versatile. I made four projects that include it recently, and I thought I would show you guys! If you would like to see a tutorial on any of these please let me know! I hope these ideas inspire you 🙂

Project #1: Decoupage Painting

ImageI got my inspiration for these paintings from Pinterest. The bird painting is my recreation of someone else’s painting, and the abstract one is my design 🙂 These were so easy! I used old used canvasses, newspaper, Mod Podge, and acrylic paint. Best thing? I spent no money!

Project #2: Newspaper Wrapping Paper


So this project is super duper easy! If you are out of wrapping paper, don’t worry! Just use today’s newspaper 🙂 I decorated these presents some ribbon I had around, along with some cupcake liner flowers I made. See how to make the flowers here: Cupcake Liner Flowers Pictorial.

Project #3: Newspaper Flower Wreath


This wreath makes for a great wall decoration, and doesn’t take long to make. You can make it as big or small as you like, depending on how big of pieces of paper you use. I’ve made so many of these types of wreaths! Love them!

Project #4: Newspaper Flower


These flowers are one of my favorite things to make! I can’t tell you how many I’ve made. I actually made a ton with white paper, glued them into a ball, and hung it from my ceiling. You can do so much with these flowers, and I highly recommend giving them a try!

That’s all for now! I hope you enjoyed this post! Will you be making anything with newspaper?

I ♥ You


Hey everyone! So I know everyone is probably posting a Valentine nail art design today, but I couldn’t resist 🙂 I decided to make this design pretty simple, but simple designs are my favorite actually! This was super quick and easy to do, and I added some glitter on my ring finger to add a little sparkle. What do you think about this design? What are you guys doing for Valentines?

Thanks for reading! I hope all of you have a lovely Valentines Day! ♥



 P.S. I’m going to be including a quote in all of my posts from now on. I love quotes, and I feel like they make the day happier 🙂 I thought this one was adorable!

Get To Know Me Tag!


Hey guys! I apologize for the lack of posting lately! Things have been busy, and my nails totally broke (A nail art junkies worst nightmare, am I right?!), so I have been allowing them to grow out again. But no worries, I will have a new nail art design up soon, and I also have a lot of fun crafting ideas 🙂 Chloinmind tagged me to do the “Get To Know Me Tag” awhile ago (thanks so much for tagging me!), and I think it is such a fun tag! While my nails are on the mend I thought I would do it today. Be sure to check out Chloinmind, it’s an amazing blog! 

Is your hair naturally curly or straight? 

My hair is mostly straight, but it has a lot of body, and tends to be wavy at times.

Do you wear the same style every day, or do you change it? 

I change it day to day, but I don’t do anything fancy. I switch between a bun, a high ponytail, straight, and natural (on those lazy days!). 

How often do you change your nail polish? 

Probably three times a week. I love changing it up and trying new designs. I get bored with what I have on my nails very quickly! I also end up changing my nail polish because it tends to chip quickly, and when that happens I need to take it off! Do any of you know about a great top coat that prevents chipping? I haven’t found one that I love! If you have any recommendations please let me know 🙂

How long does it take for you to put on makeup? 

I would say 30 to 45 minutes. It can definitely take me much longer if I don’t have to be anywhere! 

What do you do first? Face or eyes? 

Most of the time face, but every so often I will do my eyes first. I’m just weird like that I guess!

Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?

Hmmm… I am not a huge collector, but I do end up buying makeup when I don’t need it. So yes, I guess I collect, but a lot. Does that make any sense? Hehehe.

How often do you wear false eyelashes?

Never do!

Do you do a full face of makeup every day? 

Yes, but I don’t wear heavy makeup.

Do you wear makeup when you’re home alone or with family? 


How many high-end products do you have?

Not that many, most of them have been gifts to me 🙂 

How often do you change your handbag? 

Not very often, I tend to stick with the same bag for awhile!

Left handed or right handed? 

Right handed!

How tall are you? 

4’9”! I’m super short. Good things come is small packages though, right??

How many pets do you have? 

One dog name Bruno. He’s a Boston Terrier!

How do you blog?

I don’t really have a system actually! I wish I was one of those people who are super organized when it comes to blogging, but alas I’m not!

Do you read comments posted on blogs? 

Yes! I love hearing what people have to say and it’s a great way to find new blogs!

How did you come up with your blog name? 

I was trying to think of a name that combined crafting with nail art. My mom actually came up with the name! You use polish when doing nail art, and paste when doing crafts. Ta da! Polish and Paste was born! 

What kind of camera do you use for your photographs? 

I use a 5th generation iPod touch. The camera quality is amazing!

What’s your favorite color?

Pink or mint green.

I tag:

Brijit’s Digits

Flight Of Whimsy

Nearly Nailed It!

Wonderful Wolf

Well, that’s all for today! I hope you guys enjoyed this tag 🙂

Thanks for reading! ♥

Tropical Kawaii ☼


Hey guys! Where I live it’s snowy and freezing, so I thought I would do a summer nail design to make me feel a little more summery! This might be one of my favorite designs that I’ve done 🙂  I had to add a cute face to the pineapple and starfish because I feel like the cuter the nail art the better! What’s your favorite nail? I hope this manicure gives you a little bit of summer if it’s freezing where you live!

Thanks for reading! ♥

“Would You Rather” TAG! (Beauty Questions) ♥

Hey everyone! Today I am going to be doing a “would you rather tag”. I was tagged by the lovely Ginger Loves Makeup 🙂 If you love beauty and nail polish definitely go check out her blog – it’s awesome! Lets get started with the questions, shall we?

1. Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lip glosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?

Ahhh this is hard. I absolutely love my eyeshadows, but I think I would go nuts without my mascara. So, sorry eyeshadows and palettes – you’d have to go!

2. Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?

I have to say I’d cut it off! I don’t think I could stand never cutting my hair again.

3. Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?

I’m a coral kind of girl 🙂

4. If you had £1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?

Wow, that’s a hard decision! I would probably choose clothes though, as I don’t really need more makeup hehe 🙂

5. Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?

Ew! But I guess if I had to choose I would probably apply lipstick as eyeliner…

6. Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?

Sephora all the way!

7. Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?

Eyeshadow is one of my favorite makeup items, so I couldn’t use just one color for the rest of my life! I would much rather use one lip color.

8. Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?

Hmmmm…. summer clothes in winter! Wearing winter clothes in summer would be a terrible experience hahaha 🙂

9. Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?

Bight nails! I have never loved dark nails. The brighter and crazier the better – I love it when my nails stand out!

10. Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?

I would rather give up my favorite lip product.

11. Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?

Ponytail! Would I be able to wear a bow with it, too? 🙂

12. Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?

NEVER PAINT MY NAILS AGAIN?! Hahaha that’s never gonna happen. Bye bye lipgloss!

13. Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?

Oh my gosh. I guess sharpie them in… Sharpied eyebrows are better than none, right? Eh I don’t know… Lets just go with yes.

14. Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?

Painting my nails is one of my favorite things to do… so as much as I love makeup, I guess I could learn to live without it!

Well, that’s all the questions guys! I hope you enjoyed! If you are reading this you are tagged – I would love to read your answers to these questions 🙂

Thanks for reading! ♥
