Ring accent on a scarf
in place of a broach

Inspiration: http://www.wendyslookbook.com/2012/01/modern-vintage-leather-trims-silk-hermes/

So I don’t have a Herme’s Scarf, or the lovely YSL ring, BUT I have some larger cocktail rings I’ve never really worn that would look good in place of a broach on a scarf.

 

I DO have this vintage scarf I bought on ebay 
and the ring was my grandmother’s.

I’m using a long rectangular scarf instead of a square. I threaded one side through the ring one way and the other side through the other way and tied a loose knot in the back so the ring was secure and wouldn’t fall off. I let the ends trail off the sides because the scarf did not start as a square like hers.

Mixing Nail Polishes – Lattes at Tiffany’s

I SWEAR this isn’t going to be a nail polish blog. It’s just what I’m a little obsessed with at the moment. 

 

mixing polish on packing tapeSo I’ve been looking for a warm grey for awhile so a couple of weeks ago I was mixing polishes and came across a combo I liked. Easiest way to do this is put some packing tape on the counter and mix away to determine if it’s worth the polish to make a larger batch like so (then mix with a brush.)

 

I looked on ebay and found some empty mini nail polish bottles for a decent price and ordered some. (I actually like OPI’s “You don’t know Jaques” which I found out after I bought some mini bottles.)

 

Anyway they are nice little bottles and I mixed up two different colors.

The Latte sorta grey brown color I mentioned above made using Zoya “Tao”, Sinful Colors “Snow Me White”, and Revlon’s “Hot for Chocolate” :

And the one I’m going to call “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” because it reminds me of the tiffany color (though probably not exact to be honest) made combining Sinful Colors “Snow Me White” and Sinful Colors “Aqua”:

So what do you think of my custom mixes?
And have you ever mixed your own personal nail polish colors?
