Now, you might not think of BB&B when it comes to nail polish shopping but if you have one nearby with a Health & Beauty Care (or HBC) department, it’s worth checking out.

DIY Chalkboard Nail Art Tutorial

So yesterday’s post about the Revlon Nail Art Chalkboard™ duos got me thinking about those of you who don’t want to plunk down cash on an expensive kit or invest in a short-lived trend. Why not shop our own stashes to create some Chalkboard Nail Art?
