DIY: Thrifted Vanity Decor

Every girl’s vanity/dresser should be customized to match her personality. A great way to do so is thrifting. By finding unique decor you can achieve a fun vanity space all your own, and on
a low budget!

Look for items that can be converted into something else. For example, I took a shabby chic toothbrush holder and turned it into a makeup brush organizer! I also found an awesome
mirror to use as a vanity tray. Just refresh your perspective and you’ll find there’s tons you can do with regular household objects!

Here’s a simple mani that’s quick and easy! All you need is a nail dotter (or a bobby pin or something with a round end) cling wrap, and multiple nail polish colors! Check out Juleps awesome variety here.

On the cling wrap place a dab of each color you’re using. Start with a bright color and dot randomly on your nails. Repeat with all your colors, alternating your neutrals with your brights. Be sure to cover the tips of your nails. Then, take a glitter polish and dot over one of your bright colors. Finish with a top coat and voila!

Mix prints and fabrications to create the ultimate carefree outfit! Keep the waist accentuated with a cropped blazer to avoid looking boxy. Add a pop of sparkle as a finishing touch for an effortless, “threw it on,” look.

Nail art is so much fun, and there is a lot of designs you can easily do yourself at home. Skip the salon and check out my latest manicures!

Try using metallic Sharpies to make dainty patterns or prints. Just draw directly onto a painted, dry nail and cover with a clear coat! Caviar beads are also a quick fix to fill that nail trend crave. Just mix multiple colors into a bowl and sprinkle on top of a clear coat or nail glue coat. You can buy your own at Joann Fabrics, PacSun, The Dollar Tree, or Claire’s. Confetti nails are one of my personal favorites because there are so many ways to sparkle your nails! Do just the tips, half moons, or the whole nail! Or stay classic with the French manicure. Change them up with metallic finishes or angled tips! It’s a great illusion to make short nails look longer too!
