Sometimes I want fancy nails for special occasions but I don’t want to pay “special” nail salon prices. Get the look you want with little to no cost. All you need is some common office supplies, your favorite nail colors and about 20 mins. Gather these items to get started.
- Favorite nail polish (2 different colors)
- Paper clips
- Sticky Notes
- Hole punch reinforcements
Start by painting all your nails with a base color. Now choose the tools you want based on the design you want to achieve. (TIP: Use a quick drying top coat to preserve your design while you work on other nails)
Open a paper clip. Place a few dips of nail polish on a sticky note. Dip the tip of the paper clip in the polish then onto your nail to create dots and flowers.
Place a hole punch reinforcement label on the upper part of your nail leaving the bottom uncovered. Paint the uncovered bottom part with a different color than your base color. Remove the label to reveal a crescent nail design.
Place tape vertically, diagonally, or horizontally to reveal crisp straight lines on your nails.
Try combining designs by using multiple tools. This will give you an authentically unique design.
