Gluten Free households are reported purchases for Gluten Free Food products hit 11% last year, up fro 5% in 2010

Gluten Free products sales estimates more than 15 billion in annual sales, up for 10.5 million last year

About 30% of the public says it would like to cut back on the amount of gluten its eating

DIY Camouflage Print Nails 

Start with a nude base color

Use end of nail polish brush or q-tip to dot on green color polish creating random blob shapes on nails

Take a brown toned polish and use the same dotting technique to create blobs that fill some of the gaps and overlap onto the green 

Use a Black polish to fill more gaps and overlap the other colors used

Float a layer of fast drying top coat over the top to smooth out the bumps and give it a professional looking finish

I wanted to do something a little different with my nails this week. Its not perfect, but its defiantly eye catching. 

Have a lovely Friday Friends
