Fun Ideas: Go Wild with Summer Colors! Or not.

 Who said anything about wild piggies not looking cool?

Are you running out of ideas to do this Summer with the kids? Are you about to pull your hair out because the kids are driving you nuts and your bag of tricks is almost empty? I'm not there yet but the infamous cabin fever is just around the corner for most of us. So what to do?!

Well, do you have girls? Well then, this post is pretty much for you. Sorry for those with boys but heck, them boys might as well join in on the fun. So, here is what I'm talking about.

Instead of twiddling your hair or letting smoke come out of your noses like how bull gets when they're raving mad, why not look inside your closet and gather up all you nail polishes and whatnots and have a mani/pedi party! So, who cares if the boys paints their nails too?

It's a no-brainer. Except that most of my nail polishes were all dried up.

Here's my quick and cheap solution: 
  • Big Lots. I always find good deals here and found me a Summer Color collection by Elf. Cost me $4.45 for a set of 5. Not bad.
  • Dollar store. Only store where I mostly get items for my whimsical ideas on a small budget. They almost carry everything under the sun and everything is a dollar people! So, I scored some L.A. Colors new Color Craze nail polishes in bright and glitttery colors. My great find? The Art Deco nail art lacquers. Brings out the creative side of you. Just look at our nails above!

Not bad huh?! We're setting a trend if you'd like to copy our style. We went public with our piggies and finger nails looking like that and so far no one had said anything foul.

So, Agent Pink decided we will sport different colors and designs each week! Lucky me. {For my Filipino friends, I don't mean the noodles} But I'd get to save some of my brain cells from dying just by thinking of what to do next! Works for me. Now, if this doesn't work for you and you can't make it work? I suggest you go grab some watercolor and just color each others' faces OR just go color each other! Fun? Um, Yeah! Happy Summer to ya.

Got better ideas? Well, say so! 


  1. I've done that with my girl. I never do but a few weeks ago I did and had fun doing it with her. I don't normally have patience to do my own but thankful we had that moment together!

  2. Very cute idea. My daughters asks every.single.day to paint her nails, even if we painted them the day before. Can I send her to you to paint her nails?

  3. This is such a fun post. I am so lame, I can't or don't have the guts to be so bold and fun loving.

    But I love it on you!

  4. LOVE this! My girls and I do our toe nails as often as possible and try to find the most fun colors!! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Love this! I love the idea of doing something daring and different for summer.
