A couple of weeks ago when I attended the XPoNential Music Festival, I had the opportunity to interview Jade Castrinos and Nora Kirkpatrick of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

The third Roshambo video brings us back to where it all began: Paris. The final chapter in the series was filmed throughout the streets of Paris, so this inspired me to try a transfer technique on my nails using a map of the magical city. For something that looks complicated, it’s actually really simple to achieve. You can do this with any map, and it’s fun to pick out certain places that you may have traveled to or special spots that you want to put on your nails. Read more »
