DIY Diva: Check Out Our Best American Idol Look (Chosen By You!)

opi-collage-7-rockstar
As we said in our previous post, American Idol is our super-dramatic, guilty pleasure. And, as they head into the final rounds, we felt the contestants could use a little style refresher. So, we came up with eight amazing looks for those aspiring divas, with touches of Mariah Carey by OPI liquid sand™ nail lacquer — but we couldn't just throw them out there without your feedback. No, this is for Idol. And Idol lives on the will of the people (or at least their texts). Therefore, we asked you to vote on your favorite ensemble.

After a week of tallying your votes and comments, we've come to a clear winner: Our leather-and-lace Rock Star look (accented by a little "Stay the Night" nail lacquer). Can't say we didn't see it coming (we're suckers for red and black). Any Idol contestants in the audience take notice: America wants you in leather!
Oh, and yes, as we promised, we'll be hooking 10 of you lovely voters up with Mariah Carey by OPI liquid sand™ mini-packs. All you had to do was pick your favorite look. Now, all there's left to do is cross your nails and look out for that email.
