And there's glitter on the floor

I am a DIYer. Whatever the feat, my motto is "I can do it myself"! I love bargains and saving moolah, and quite honestly, what part-time working, college-paying, clothes-shopping-addict has spare money to get her nails done every week? Not this girl! 
But right around A's prom time, I decided to splurge and get acrylics. After all, it was a special occasion, and who am I to argue with an excuse for a little self-treating?
I decided to go for the white tips; they give off a great faux-french look. And when I decide I'm ready for a change, I can paint over them without fear of looking like a crazy five year old who got into the finger paints, if I mess up (and I will mess up)!  
So yesterday, I decided to go for it - I took a chance and picked up the paint!!


I used Essie polish in "Vanity Fairest", Wet n' Wild in "Silvivor", and Wet n' Wild Wild Shine in "Kaleidoscopic". 

What about you? What's your favorite thing to DIY?

  3. I am the opposite of diy when it comes to clothes and art. I can hang a picture like no ones business, even straight, and even form concert (yeah don't ask) but sewing, painting my nails etc. I just have no talent for it. I do paint my own nails because I can't afford to get them done and always make a mess.
    Cheers,

  6. cute! I think you did a fab job. I am the same way, a penny pincher. Who doesn't want to save their hard earned cash? I know I do! It helps you be creative right?
