I’m excited to be sharing a small corner of my bedroom today! I call it the nail painting station 🙂
Recently, my mom was downsizing and no longer had room for an antique vanity. It was in my parent’s bedroom growing up and I remember spending countless hours making funny faces in this very mirror. Ha!
Here’s what the space looked like when we first moved in. I didn’t have a chair or stool, so this piece was mostly used as random storage.
I remember watching my mom paint her nails here as I grew up, and the idea of creating a nail painting station was born.
First thing to go was the weird paint color on the walls.
After adding a few more accessories, here’s what I ended up with…
I thought about painting the vanity, but I’m glad I decided to keep the original wood.
The real star of the show is the velvet floral stool from Anthropologie. Isn’t it dreamy?
It gave the whole space a fresh and modern feel and was a great jumping off point for colors in the rest of the bedroom.
Painting the walls white made the whole room more cohesive and adding the navy velvet curtains helped everything feel a bit more luxurious.
Next, it was time to add the nail polish!
My friend, Bonnie Christine, introduced me to this amazing nail polish a few years ago and I’m in LOVE!!! I never used to paint my nails because who has time for THAT? Enter Dazzle Dry…
It consists of a whole nail system with 4 steps (prep, base coat, color, and top coat). It dries in literally 5 minutes! And I mean COMPLETELY dry.
It comes in tons of fun colors and it’s easy to wipe off with regular acetone nail polish remover.
ANNNND… did I mention that it usually lasts for a full week? I seriously love it and paint my nails on a weekly basis now 🙂
So there it is! A nail painting station! Something I never thought I needed, but a small luxury of life that helps me slow down and pamper myself.
If you’re just catching up, here are the previous posts in the “before and after parade!”
Tomorrow I’ll be taking you behind the scenes of how I created display shelves for my much-loved teacups inside my studio. It’s been one of my favorite projects yet!
