5 Easy DIY Nail Looks To Get Into The Holiday Spirit
Start writing a post

Self-care is extremely important, but I don't always make time for it. One of the things I love to do to practice self-care is to paint my nails! It doesn't matter how simple or how complex the design is, it's simply a fun activity for me to take my mind off of everything else. And it leaves my nails feeling polished and beautiful. So here's some easy nail art ideas for you to use, whether it's for self-care or not! And a lot of these looks match the theme of the holidays!

Multicolored Nails

For multicolored nails, simply choose five different nail polishes that create a cohesive color palette! Add some matte or sparkly ones into the mix to switch it up!

Sparkle Dotted Nails

For this festive look, grab a sheer nude-ish nail color and any shimmery colors you have! Paint on two layers of the sheer nude then dot with the different shimmer polishes. It almost looks like there's tiny ornaments on your nails!

Classic Red

This look only needs 2 nail polishes: your favorite red and a glitter polish! Paint all of your nails red except your ring finger, which you'll paint with the glitter. You could also make this a festive look by painting your ring finger red then striping it with a white glitter to make a candy cane design!

Gold Tipped Nails

This nail look is more understated with its subtle gold tips. Simply paint on a light nude color and outline the tips of your nails with some gold polish! This look is perfect from now all the way until New Year's!

Dark Nails

Go for a darker nail color with some warm undertones and a subtle shine to really match the mood of the holidays! These nails will work perfectly sitting by the fire and sipping hot cocoa!

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist. For me though, November is the perfect time to compile a playlist of songs that bring on major nostalgia which I think is perfect for this time of year.
