Color Street - The Perfect DIY Manicure

Color Street - The Perfect DIY Manicure

The new, easy, affordable way to polish your nails.


Color Street nail strips are the newest trend on the market. You may have recently seen your Facebook or Instagram feeds filled with lots of ladies trying to sell this new product or trying to persuade you to join their team.

What are they?

Color Street nail strips are 100% nail polish strips that are made in the USA. They are easy to apply, and they last up to two weeks. The strips have a base coat, polish coat, and top coat all in one. One amazing aspect of the nail strips is that as soon as they are placed on your nails, they are dry. There is no need to dry them or limit yourself from what you can do right after your manicure. They can also be removed with regular nail polish remover. The best part about Color Street nails is that they are only a fraction of the cost you would pay if you visited a regular nail salon. These nail strips range from $11-$14, and if you apply them correctly, you can get two manicures or a manicure and pedicure from each set. These do-it-yourself manicure sets are available in solid colors, glitters, designs, glitter designs, and French tips. Color Street also has multiple collections based on the seasons and events, such as their fall collection, Valentines Collection, and seasonal collection. The company also creates foundation strips, which help to raise money for foundations that promote things such as autism awareness and veteran appreciation.

What comes in a package of nail strips?

Each package comes with 16 nail strips, two alcohol prep pads, and a nail file. The nail strips are in two sets of eight, and they are perforated to pull apart without tearing or ripping them. The alcohol prep pads are used on nails prior to the manicure or pedicure to clean the nails and remove any dirt, lotion, etc. The nail file is individually packaged, and there is one in every package of strips to help with filing and shaping nails in the application process.

How do you apply Color Street nails?

Start by opening the outer packaging, and pulling out the contents. Open one of the alcohol nail prep pads and clean off the tops of the nails you wish to polish. Next, carefully open the clear, plastic packaging that contains the 16 nail strip. Find the strip that best fits your pinky, and tear that strip off along the perforation. Take off the top clear coat, and then the bottom white coat. Next, tear off the tab on the end. Place the nail strip on your nail right above the cuticle, being careful not to cover the cuticle. File away the excess at the top of the nail. In order to maintain maximum usage of the nail strips, use the other half of the nail strip on your other pinky. Continue this process with each of your other nails, ending with your thumbs.

It's as simple as that!

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.
