Polish Party: Simple DIY Holiday Nails

diy holiday nails

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.
