So pretty! Gold star manicure DIY (click through for more!) Simple, yet pretty are the types of manicures that I tend to gravitate towards the most. I saw a pic of someone with unpolished nails and teeny tiny gold star decorations, and thought it was such a simple yet elegant way to add a little bling to your normal nail routine.

Really easy and really pretty? Where do I sign up!?
