in TACK with NAILS!: 2Tone & Newspaper

ROXYmodae is introducing to you our newest segment, "in TACK with NAILS!" Get that little joke there? TACK and NAILS in the same title- LOL. Gotta love it! Anyway, every time we spot a new trend for those 10 little trend mannequins on your fingers, it'll be up here. Whether it be videos, instructions, a post on another blog, a link, or just a pic, you'll have every cute and stylish nail idea out there.

Today's TACKs are 2-Tone nails and Newspaper Nails. Check it out!

~To start, you can do any pre-nailpainting routine you'd normally do like buffing, cleaning, soaking, whatever it may be~

1. Pick 2 colors that look great together like black and white, red and pink, blue and yellow, orange and purple, you name it! For this example, we'll use black and white.

2. Paint half of the nail with the lighter color, which would be white here, on your nails with however many coats it would take for the color to show up nicely. (For precise separation between the two colors, use tape or a piece of paper with whatever shaped edge you like. The picture below shows a rounded edge.)

3. Let the lighter color dry completely

4. Do the same with the other (darker) color. Let it dry.

5. Apply your top coat. and let that dry. Clean off any edges or excess paint off of the cuticle and surrounding skin.

Q: What are some Boho Style staple materials & pieces?
A: Floral, suede, fringe, maxi skirts and dresses, knits, feathers, beads, and colors like khaki, brown, tan, crème, and coral. Boho is all about having a carefree style. A boho chick loves her some layered patterns, earthy/natural tones, and fabrics cut right from nature itself.

Slap some comfy moccasins on those piggies and roll out! Of course if this short description wasn't enough, you can always, oh I don't know...READ BELOW!

Unique or floral maxi skirts are gold when paired with a plain tank top (tucked in) and adorable gladiator sandals or neutral wedges. With a dress, add a braided belt to define your shape. Pile on the detailed bangles and a statement ring on the opposite hand. Got a denim vest? Put it over a floral shirt or dress, add strap heels on the feet, and drop/feather earrings. Throw your hair into a curly up-do with wispy bangs still down. BOOM!

Don't like the whole skirt or dress idea? A beaded necklace, moccasins, and a shirt with top detail go great with a pair of slim-fitted dark colored blue jeans. Roll the bottom of the jeans up to show off your shoes. Try some denim shorts (preferably ripped with a wide brown belt), leggings underneath, and knee socks scrunched enough to just peep out of lace-up boots. On top, put on a lace top, a cardigan longer than the shorts length, and a to-the-side hairdo. Roll or push up the cardigans sleeves to elbow length and use the new arm space for 1 or 2 very bold bangles. Send us pics!

I'm Back- So Stock Up on Fall Fab!

Hey guys! ROXYmodae is back and better than ever! No more delays in between posts! Now that we've stocked up on post ideas for autumn, get ready for up to 2 posts per day for the entire year! So stock up on fall fabulosity every day!

*starts to think about what I just typed* Think to myself: "THE YEAR?! What am I saying? Did I REALIZE what a long time that is?- 365 posts per year! I don't think fashion moves that fast. Better save some for 2012. Lem'me stop lying to them. They better not get their hopes up on that one...but I'll try!"
