Starry, Starry Nails

These are the nails that I created for a small party I'm going to this evening. Simple, edgy, and sparkly. They fit my personality perfectly, I think. It's very, very easy to do. As a matter of fact anyone could do it well. Read more to get the steps for these nails.

Lookbook Lusts: Week 2

10 Tips for Looking Like a Beauty at the Gym

Not everyone can go to the gym for a full workout without looking like a total slob, though I know we all wish we could. Here are a few ways to beat the sweat and look like a beauty while you're working out.

1. Wash your face - It's really important that you wash your face before and after you go to the gym to prevent your pores from clogging up which will cause acne.

2. Don't wear foundation - Sweat and heavy layers of makeup won't do anything good for you. Not only will it just melt off of your face and make you look ridiculous in the moment, but it can also clog your pores and cause breakouts that could last a lot longer.

3. Do wear mascara - No one wants to look dead, even if they're working out. Just put on some mascara and don't worry about anything else, so you can look awake.

4. Put your hair in a ponytail - Don't bother spending an hour to fix your hair if you're going to the gym for a real work out. Just pull it up into a cute ponytail to keep it out of your face and off your back. I promise you'll look more ridiculous with your hair flowing in the fan on the treadmill.

5. Find a good sports bra - Depending on what workouts you're doing a sports bra is really necessary for support and to keep everything from bouncing all over the place. Find a good, supportive sports bra. I like bright colored ones that look pretty even when you're not wearing a shirt over them.

6. Wear the right gym clothes - The easiest way to stay comfortable is to wear a loose tee shirt. If you wear a shirt that's right under your armpits then you're more likely to get sweat stains there which no one wants when they're trying not to care what they look like. I wear muscle shirts that I cut up myself to the gym because they look good and they're perfect for the occasion.

7. Use the right antiperspirant - Find a deodorant that works well for your body and keeps you from sweating a lot. It'll make you feel a lot better.

8. Stick to simple to no jewelry - If you're going to wear any kind of jewelry to the gym stick to something that you absolutely never take off like that necklace your mom gave you when you were little or your engagement ring or maybe some stud earrings. Don't wear giant hoops. It's unnecessary.

9. Drink water - Drinking water is just good for your beauty in general. Your hair, your skin, your nails! But it's also important to stay hydrated when you're doing anything physical.

10. Don't care about anyone else there - You're there to take care of yourself so screw everyone else! It's not important what they think. Just worry about yourself.

Twisted Teal

So, I've been wanting for the longest time ever to dye my hair a crazy color. The color I actually want to dye it is cotton candy pink, but that takes a lot of bleaching and I don't have the money for that. On a whim I decided to dye my bangs dark teal using Raw's Twisted Teal and I ended up loving it so much, so my best friend and I decided to dye all of my hair dark teal. I really love the way it turned out, but it's not that noticeable in pictures even though it's really vivid in person. Since I took the pictures inside and the lighting was horrible I had to brighten the colors up a bit, but I hope you guys like it! There will be better pictures tomorrow along with an outfit post! (Hopefully.)

If I Were a Boy...

Guys where I live dress like total crap in my opinion. They all look the same, they all just wear what everyone else wears, and all they wear is jeans, tee shirts, polos, sneakers, and boat shoes. It's ridiculous if you ask me. And there's nothing wrong with dressing casually, but if you have no originality, you wear the same five shirts over and over, and your clothes don't fit properly, then no thanks, boys. If I were a guy I would have a distinct style. I would wear nice tee shirts, lots of tanks in the summer, well fitting jeans, hats, and nice shoes. If every guy had their own style like Adam Gallagher of I am Galla, or Gabriel Wulf, I would be happy.

Pretty in Pastel Nails

Recently I've become obsessed with pastel nail colors. I painted my friend's and her sister's nails a shade of pastel (let's just call them my sisters since I live with them). Pastel blue and a nice, light shade of lavender. And of course, I had to do my own nails while I was at it and I chose a nice shade of pastel, mint green for myself. It's my favorite summer nail color.

What's your favorite nail color to wear in the summer? And what do you think of mine?

Here Comes the Sun: Dressing for Heat

The heat can be a bummer, but with all of the summer options it's not so hard to decide what to wear. I put together an outfit built for heat today, since it was a particularly hot day here. It's got a bunch of color and a lot of character.

1. Tropical shirt - thrift store
2. High-waist shorts - thrift store (reconstruction by me)
3. Belt - little sister's closet
4. Shoes - gift from mom

Dream List: Nasty Gal Edition

Normally someone would call this a "Wish List," but the items that I'm going to put in this segment are so far out of my reach at the moment that I wouldn't even bother wishing for them. I'm really tight on money as of right now, since I don't have a job and I'm paying for a lot of stuff on my own. Here are some items from Nasty Gal that I could only ever dream of buying, but that I would die if I ever had. Is there anything out there that you want, but just can't afford right now?

An Introduction

Hello there. My name is Debbie and it looks like you've made it to my blog The Idiosyncrasy. If you're looking for fashion, beauty, and style, then you've come to the right place. I'm an eighteen year old college student who just loves style. My whole life I have been really interested in fashion and over time it became a love of mine. I got hooked on making looks my own and expressing myself that way, because I believe that fashion is a form of art. And I love every form of art that comes to mind.

This blog will be revolved around personal style and beauty. I'll try my best to throw in many cool things along the way since I have a lot of cool ideas, but feedback would be very helpful. Lots of content to come so keep your eyes peeled!
