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.
The name of the fashion game this summer seemed to be color, Color and more COLOR. A Huffington Post article featuring candy-coated nails also caught my eye. Then there’s the recent trend of crackled polish and those leopard print nail strips and ombre everything.
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.
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?
