Perfectly Purple Nails Perk Me Up

I have been trying to figure out a way to perk my look up now that I am not in maternity clothes anymore, but still can’t quite fit back into my normal sized clothes.  Needless to say, I’m kind of over being in that in-between stage…ugh.

So what is a girl to do when she wants to add color to her life without breaking the bank by buying new “in-between” clothing?? I go and paint on a fabulous shocking nail color!  A fresh coat of unexpected color in your fingernail polish is the easiest way to update your look without being married to it- or having to FIT into it. Nail polish fits every size!  My recent purchase of China Glaze polish in purple color “spontaneous” ($5) was just what the doctor ordered.  The perfect matte purple to perk up my dreary outlook.

I don’t usually paint my nails and toes the same color because it seems so repetitive, but this color made me so happy I decided, why not?!

Another way to jazz up your look without going too crazy is to work the ombre nail idea.  I haven’t implemented this idea, yet, but found it on  I recently talked about how the ombre fad has hit the hair world (think Julia Roberts and Drew Barrymore,right) and now you can do the same idea for nails- love bringing out the unexpected with the little details:-)  I’m totally trying this very soon, check out the how to on the Instyle link above.

I could actually see Drew wearing this purple color couldn’t you?? She’s a cool rockin chick who likes to push the envelope and has great quirky style!  So if you are in a style rut but don’t want to make a major wardrobe overhaul, just switch up your nail color!  It’s as easy as paint by number.
