DIY: Multi-color nail trend



I’m going to blame it all on Deal Diva Kameel. Ever since I saw her post about Black Diamond Nail Polish (Remember? Real diamonds. Retail price: $250,000 per bottle), I’ve been obsessed.

But I haven’t only been dazzled by sparkles.

But alas. I am poor. And regular manicures are expensive. Not to mention that I worry about potential damage to my own nail beds.

I decided this weekend that I would sit down and try to recreate a snazzy look on my own.

Walmart sells polish called Pure Ice for a magical $2 a bottle.

I decided to try out the multi-color nail trend that’s been so popular this summer.

For a regal look, I turned to two of my fave colors: Purple and green. In a nod to those black diamonds, I added the color ‘spitfire’ for a bit of sparkle. High on glitter content, zilch on diamonds.


Here are the results. Grand total: $6. How’d I do, divas? Are you all feeling the multi-color nail trend?
