DIY Nail art at home!

It is not enough to merely paint your nails these days. There are some brilliant and creative designs out there that you can create to transform your nails and make them look professionally done. It does not have to be complicated or hard as it may seem like. Furthermore, you do not have to invest in expensive products or tools or huge experience. What is needed is motivation and you can join the trend easily regardless of your skill level.

French Mani Touch up

If you have tried French Mani before and it does not come out the way you expect it to be, then there is a simple way to do it. You do not have to go through the frustrations of having to redo it again. What you need to do is to visit a craft shop or stationery store and get a glitter pen. You can then use to draw a line where the different colors meet.

Scotch Tape

You do not need to have a steady hand to create zigzag stripes like a tattoo artist. All you need to do is to focus and concentrate and the scotch tape will guide you. Ensure that the base color has dried for at least one before you proceed to tape and paint again.

Love Nails

Nails painted with hearts are adorable. Whether it is a one accent nail or you want them all over, they will still be mesmerizing. All what you need to create perfect heart is a toothpick. Using a toothpick, move two dots of equal size next to each other. After that, drag them at 45 degrees angle down wards so that they meet at the bottom and love is in the air.

Thin Stripy Nails

You can use a fan brush if you want to create thin stripes on your nails. After your base color has dried completely, dip the fan brush into a different color at the tips. Brush horizontally over your nail and wait for some few minutes so that it can dry. Proceed with the process and use any colors that you fancy. Alterntively you could always use a set of nail vinyls to make sure you stay in the lines.

Cotton String

This is a really innovative and fun idea for a nail art. Apply the base coat and give it time to dry. After it has dried, add a clear coat on top of it, then drape the cotton string on the wet coat so that it sticks. To hold the string in place, top it with a clear coat after it has dried. You can play around with the string and base colors while you leave the squiggly string as it is.

DIY Stickers

Some people find it hard to paint or draw designs on their nails but there are easier ways to do it. Start off with painting the design on a Ziploc bag then allowing it to dry for some few minutes to dry. Stick it on your nails, clean it, and then apply a top coat.

Conclusion

There are endless possibilities and designs that you can create yourself on your nails. Nail art is not dead and you just need motivation and passion for those unique and creative looks. It is something that you can do while watching your favorite TV show.
