Living Better with Leslie & Janet... - The Dainty Squid

Living Better with Leslie & Janet...

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Well, it's time for the video that Elycia and I worked so hard to make! We decided to make a little infomercial on nail stickers. Almost daily I get emails asking for tips on how to get the crisp clean lines from the stickers so what better way to explain than in tacky infomercial form?!
You can find the nail stickers mentioned in the video here

Hope you enjoyed Leslie and Janet, the video and our silliness in general!

  12. I laughed out loud at that "work it giiiiirl". It was quiet enough to be really creepy, but still hilarious? Like, the perfect combo? Yeah, good stuff. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun!

  14. Oh. My. Love. This was so great and reminds me of things me and friend used to do when I was like 11 years old. This is so hilarious and now I want to paint my nails. Also I don't think I'm going to be able to use those stickers without hearing Leslie's sweet sultry voice saying "these faaaabulous stickers" oh man, so many giggles. Petting Doc at the end was too cute. You guys are just perfect.

  62. Oh my goodness, you guys are so incredibly silly! Thanks for making my day!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Love it! Love it! Love it!
    However, I hold you both personally responsible for enabling me to keep continuing on with purchasing nail colors in addition to the acrylic holder (now full!) My bf is a nice bloke and thinks it's great (he's an artist, therefore highly encouraging in anything color related!)... another 12 box is in the mail. I think that nail art is amazing and that ebay seller is gonna make a million off of you guys.
    Now, as according to other people posting here, we need makeup vlogs! Thanks for the giggles!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Looking SO good ladies! :) I'm sure this was a fun one to edit!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I love it! My favourite part is "just can't get those darn nail stickers to work". Those parts are always so terrible. Obviously you're going to cut yourself shaving if you hack at your legs with the razor :D

    ReplyDelete
  77. I've been following your blog since I found a zig-zag nail tutorial, but this by far has to be my favorite nail post of yours! I just got those stickers in the mail the other day, and honestly, I'm glad I have a video to watch first :) Hilarious AND helpful? Awesome!
