Since you can't get to the salon for a manicure or pedicure during COVID-19. I have an excellent alternative for you that is easy to do and affordable.

Instead of dying easter eggs this year,  Liza and I did our nails using the nail polish strip Glamsterdam from Color Street.

Color Street DIY Nail Strips

I hesitated to try this DIY polish application at first, but I am glad I did. Sure, my nails are not perfect, but after I do them, I feel happier and more upbeat. My nails look 100 percent better than if I had tried to use nail polish on my own.

You need to try Color Street.  Trust me. Do their special. Buy 3 and get 1 free. You will love it.

My friend, Dana, introduced me to the products in January and I've become a big fan.



A pale blue called Chilladelphia


Color Street makes 100 percent nail polish strips that are easy to apply. In fact, they are so easy to use that my own daughter does hers and mine.  It's that simple. Your nails become a canvas for wherever your creativity takes you. 

You can go pastel, bold, glittery, neutral, or mix and match.  The first time I did Color Street, I started with the palest of pinks called Himalayan Salt. It is still a favorite of mine.

The color ideas are endless.

Neutral nail polish


You can design an overlay look, mix it up, or keep it solid. The choice and your creativity are up to you. There is even Clear as Day, which is just a clear nail, and it works great over solids to give it more protection.


Plaid about you is a great plaid overlay over any color



The nail strips come in petite (great for little hands), standard size, and pedicure strips. However, you can always use the standard strips for your toes, too.  You may need to turn the largest one sideways for the big toe, but it is easy to do and works just as well.

The strips can also be used to cover gels from professional salons.

I came up with my own combo for UCA in Orlando. I used Holy-Teal-edo with the Coming Up Rose Gold overlay.  The teal is now a favorite of mine, and I think I will wear it to cheer competitions since it is our primary team color. It's lovely by itself, too.





You're probably wondering how easy is Color Street to apply. It is easy.  The pedicure is more challenging, but I did it.  If this non-DIY queen can do it, then I know you can do it even better.  Once they are on your nails, they are immediately dry.
