I’m proud to be working my way into the frugalista movement–a group of women who are smart about their money. They’re clipping coupons, skipping expensive outings and attempting more DIY (do-it-yourself) projects.
And DIY includes everything from home improvement projects to personal beauty.
So as the week closed, I dug into my nail polish basket and attempted a festive manicure.
My choices (left to right):
- OPI “Pirouette My Whistle” (sparkly top coat)
- Urban Outfitters Nail Color in “Tusk”
- Essie “Lilacism” (accent nails)
Plus, Out The Door quick-dry top coat for a fast finish.
With questionable dexterity, a hope and a prayer, I got to work.
The result? A fun, at-home manicure, which I’m pretty pleased with–and about $25 in nail salon savings. With more practice and creativity, I’m excited to see what else I can come up with.
