Kylie Nails the Celebrity Mani For Less

It’s no surprise that after Kylie Jenner’s success with Lip Kit, she has ventured into new territory (that she will probably slay) – nails. Jenner is never spotted without the perfect mani and now she’s making it easy for us to keep up with her. Her Sinful Colors collaoration called "Denim & Bling," comes in 16 shades of edgy colors. Going bold? Try one of our favorites, Kustom Fit, a teal metallic must-have color. Even better is the price. Shop Denim & Bling at Walgreens for a whopping $3!
