Nail Polish of the Moment: $3 DIY MANICURE!

I tend to dress on the more conservative/sophisticated end of the spectrum, so when it comes to things like my nails, every so often, I like to get a little bit cutesy with my polish. Lately, I have been in a very girlie mood (Peter Pan syndrome, perhaps). I wanted to do another custom glitter look. I chose Femme Fatale 5117 from Sinful Colors ($1.99 at Walgreens or Rite Aide) with BCC 582 (Purple/Colored Glitter) from LA Colors Color Craze ($1 at The Dollar Tree) on top. It turned out really nicely. I usually gravitate towards my OPI polishes but for $3 the quality of this look really can't be beat. I highly recommend the LA Colors brand. It's extremely affordable, quite easy to find (Dollar stores, Big Lots, etc.) and works very well. I have a ton of Sinful Colors in my collection as well. Some work better than others but if you're looking to have a versatile color selection in your own collection, Sinful Colors offer a wide range and it is very easy to find at many drug stores.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
