Minicure Monday: Tangled in her...TOMS?!?!?

OK, I admit it.   I just did this minicure to show off the makeover I gave my princess' Tom's.
You see, after much Tom's bashing and resistance, I finally assimilated and bought a pair for my darling daughter's first year of public school this year.   This is the pair we picked up:

Super adorable, right?  But, true to Tom's and especially true to this fabric, the toe soon wore out and was threadbare.  Soon, as in after less than 10 uses.
As a frugal mommy, this was deeply upsetting - especially given the high quality of the sole and insole of the shoe.   So, instead of tossing them, I decided to try the ever popular makeover - Tangled style.   I know you're dying now, right?  OK, here's the photos:

 The finished product (and look, nails!   See, this is relevant...)

A couple of comparisons of the damaged shoe, and the finished product for you:

 I won't lie - it was a lot of work, a fair bit of frustration, but she and I are both ecstatic 
with the end product - even better than the original.  


Mini post: Bieber Groupie Franken and Stamping...

Please forgive my absence, I've really been trying to strengthen my nails and techniques - I've got a super exciting post coming Monday, involving Toms, Tangled, and my lovely daughter's mini mani.   But for today, just a quick refeature of my franken. "Bieber Groupie" - to tell you the truth, I have only ever heard "Baby" and I'm not personally a Bieber-ite, but that's the first thing this franken polish made me think of when I finished creating it.   

I recently discovered it's brilliance in stamping - here, layered over Zoya "Blaire", a fun vampy red.  
(Bieber Groupie alone)
I intend to decant a little bit of this and send it to my Polish Aholics Anonymous Secret Santa.   I hope she loves it!
