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!

Sprinkles & Splatter: Nail Art at Home

If you’re a fan of nail art and follow countless nail accounts on Instagram, you’ve seen the crazy cool nail polishes from various Etsy shops. Nail sprinkles are one of the latest nail trends and the quickest way to get a chic manicure in minutes! Its equivalent to nail confetti in a bottle, coming in all shapes, colors, and sizes.

I follow MrsLochness on Instagram and one of her posts featured this nail polish! I’ve been searching for a sprinkley nail polish that’s available anywhere besides Etsy, and when I noticed the bottle said Hard Candy, I knew I could find it at Walmart.

This nail polish, “Black Tie Optional,” is the absolute perfect finishing touch to any basic manicure and it’s totally on trend with its black and white color palette. What’s even better is that it’s a matte confetti so it has a unique paint splatter effect! It’s also not super base heavy like most glitter polishes, so it goes on thin and dries almost instantly. Try it on pastels for the best contrast and watch your mani transform!

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!
