Valentine's Day is right around the corner and I can just smell the love in the air! My husband and I haven't had a proper date night since before Isaiah was born so we're taking the plunge and going out and celebrating the day with each other. I'm taking full advantage of this super rare event and pulling out all the stops to doll up and feel pretty for the evening, and for me, it all starts with a good manicure from my current obsession - Color Street Nails! For this blog I'm collabing with my friend Danielle, a TOTAL boss mom who is a current rep for the company to show off this adorable nail look I tried out. We will also be hosting a giveaway over on our Instagram accounts as well, allowing one awesome mama the opportunity to win a FREE set of nails to try just in time for the holiday.
Why Color Street?
Color Street Nails are designed with convience in mind. They are nail polish strips that are 95% dry and ready to apply right from the package. Not only do they have beautiful designs, but they are vegan friendly and made right here in the USA! These nails polish strips can amp up your mom style in a snap- seriously, it took me less than 20 minutes to apply my set all on my own. Y'all know how detached I am from the fashion world, I just like what looks pretty to me- but I LOVE the selection of patterns and designs color street has to offer. I applied the print "English Lace" to my nails and thought this look was feminine and fun! One of my concerns was that the strips would appear to look cheesy but after having them on, it honestly looked like I simply painted my nails myself- just better!
My advice? Follow the directions on the back of the package of your nail set for the best results. Overall I was able to navigate my way through the application process without too many mistakes. Grateful that color street offers plenty of nails just in case one ripped or got demolished somehow. So far they've held up in between washing dishes, doing laundry and playing with my baby all day. I was afraid these were going to chip, and so far they haven't; but you can apply a simple top coat to protect them a little longer and when you're ready to switch it up, color street can be removed with your standard nail polish remover solution.
Not only is this an awesome Valentine's day treat- but know how important a little bit of self care is vital to you as a mom. There are days I don't even have a chance to comb my hair, but do something today that makes you feel beautiful! I understand that most of us don't have the time, money or patience to sit at a salon waiting for polish to dry with a family to take care of. Color street nails gives you the opportunity to get a professional looking manicure at a fraction of the cost, offering affordable nail looks that won't waste your time.
Go ahead and treat yo' self girl!
