Nail art is all the rage these days. Women wear differently designed nails every week. From colourful and sparkling to artistic, there are unlimited possibilities for nail art.
However, a weekly visit to the nail studio can be quite expensive, and the design possibilities are limited. With Do it yourself Nail Art you can create any design you want and save a lot of money!
1. Newspaper Nails
This is a design that is fun, artistic and very easy to make. Start with nails that are painted in a light colour such as white, light blue, light pink or similar.
Let them dry completely. Dip your fingernail in alcohol and then press the newspaper on the nail. Press the page against the nail. Hold it for 20 to 30 seconds and remove the newspaper.
The pressure should have been transferred to the nail. After a waiting period of about 1 minute, use a high quality sealant to keep the pressure on the nail.
2. Glitter Tips
This is a delightful design that can be colourful and dazzling; perfect for an evening. Use a clear polish over the entire nail first.
Using a glitter brush or your fingertips, apply glitter of any colour only to the nail tips (the part where the white would be in a French Manicure). Allow the nail to dry completely (between 10 and 15 minutes) before applying a sealant polish to keep the glitter in place.
3. Tip Nail Art
For this cute design you need a piece of tip that is wider than your nails are long. Black or darker colours work very well. For each nail you need to cut a piece of tip that fits perfectly over the nail.
Once you have cut the tip pieces, apply a clear polish to each nail and place the tip firmly on top of it. When you have placed all tip pieces, apply a sealing lacquer, so that the tip remains for a beautiful do-it-yourself nail art look!
4. Starry Sky Nail Art
This is a strange and beautiful design that is quite easy to make. You need nail polish in a dark midnight blue, a medium (lighter) blue and white or a light glitter.
First paint half of a nail (closest to the cuticle) with the dark blue. Paint the upper half of the nail lighter blue and mix the colours in the middle with a brush dipped in clear nail polish. Apply the glitter and allow the nails to dry before sealing everything with a sealant polish.
5. Watermelon Do It Yourself Nail Art
This is a great summer design that is fresh and sweet. Start with a dark pink lacquer, mint green and black. Paint the lower half (without the tip) of the nail with the dark pink and then the tip with the green nail polish.
After they dry, apply dots (seeds) to the pink part of the nail just under the green tip. When the black seeds are dry, use a sealing top coat to keep the nail beautiful for longer.
These are just some of the great nail art designs you can do yourself. With a little imagination and creativity, all your friends will ask you to do their nails too!
