Cocknails: Root Beer Floats and Floating Clouds Manicure

3 Posted by - August 28, 2013 - Food & Drink, Hair & Beauty, Videos

My friend Andris volunteered to help me this week for Cocknails! She is super fun and swears a lot and is a loud redhead and I absolutely adore her. Watch the video, enjoy, and check below for some links where you can get some more Andris love, because I know you’re gonna want it. (If you can’t see the video, click here!)

Check out more of Andris and buy her book!

Also, you know how Andris was talking about letting her kids do her make-up and putting up a video? Well she totally did it, yo.

    It’s definitely the dotting tools you used. The tutorial shows like four big dots, and you have lots of little dots. You need to get a big pin or a chopstick or something to get the right sized dots to make them look like clouds.

    I thought floats had icecream.

      You can totally substitute vodka.

        LOL- yes….vodka is an official substitute for any missing ingredient. Want cereal? Out of milk? Add vodka…viola, delish snack. By the way, Sonja, I have a mad girl-crush on you 🙂

    Watching someone do a manicure and seeing the end result isn’t the point… Then what IS the point of watching a manicure video?

      Gettin’ drunk and stupid, of course. 😉

    That drink sounds SOOO good. Though, I’m wondering how it would taste with coke, Coke floats were always my favorite. Might have to try this sometime soon. Very soon.

    …I’m officially trying to figure out how to fit “well, that went over like a fart in a spacesuit” into my daily conversations as much as possible. Oh wait, I’m a preschool teacher and talk to 2 year olds all day. So there goes all the fun.

    Those bad boys sneak up on you, it tastes like innocence lol. That vodka is also good in orange soda if you’re in to dreamsicles 🙂

    “Hey, gf, you’re so FAT!” “Aww, hugs, you’re so fat too!” Y’all funny. AND I totally bought the first Deadly Sins book, yaaaaay! (Um, are there book thingies on Pinterest? That could somehow work their way into Pintester? Just curie.) LOVE your VIDS. As always. Your (other) fat gf, Lisa.

    Wow, she’s really pretty. We are probably the same age, but I want to be Andris when I grow up.

  • IWannaBeASaucyBitch August 29, 2013 - 3:07 pm Reply

    Shes really pretty and hilarious. I like a good romance (since its non existent in my life and all) I just may read it.

    For someone who doesn’t know what to do with whipped cream vodka, the bottle sure was low!

    Well, shoot! How could I not buy a book written by a shaved horse butthole! (Seriously, I just ordered it. I prefer an actual book to running down my phone’s battery life, but I’ll make an exception.)

      Also, I really hope you guys get why I said that. It just occurred to me that I could get a, “What the fuck?! Oh HELL no!” But when someone describes themselves like that, even separately, it combines in my mind and becomes one awesome thing.

      • Andris Bear September 25, 2013 - 2:10 pm Reply

        Bahaha! I totally got it. No worries. And glad you enjoyed! 😉

          I did! I’m normally against reading anything on kindle, because I just prefer books. Books don’t run out of batteries. Books are still books if you drop them in a bucket of mop water because you’re a dumbass and forgot that you had that in your hand as you went by said bucket and it slipped. Not that I’ve ever done anything like make my electronics have an up close and personal experience with pinesol… yeah.
          Anyway, loved it and I’ve got to remember to go buy your other stuff! It’s original. I love original!

          • Andris Bear October 9, 2013 - 10:25 pm

            Well, you MUST love original with a name like Llama spit! 😉 Thanks so much, darlin’!

    You can carefully use your brush to make the clouds as well, way easier! You guys are so funny!
