Behold The World’s Most Expensive Polish

Although we dont splurge often (we are proud frugalistas, after all) when we do it’s almost always on one of two things – Food……and nail polish. Because the former is necessary for living and we need to live to bring you the amazingness that’s here on DIY2EMC, that one’s a given. Nail polish, however, is our secret shame in the world of paying retail. Given we use it for a plethora of DIY ditties, it seems to justify the full price purchase most ofRead more

Take Tacky To Trendy With Nail Polish!

We’ve all been there.
