Holiday Nails DIY

Here’s a really simple holiday nail design to wow your friends and family at holiday parties and gatherings. The best part is that you can do it yourself! Yay DIY!!!

  1. Start with your base color. I chose red and white just to show two different designs.
  2. Use a thin liner brush(got mine at the dollar store) or dip a paper clip in the nail polish to make your lines.
  3. Make 3 straight lines starting from the same point.
  4. Then make smaller lines branching out from each the first set of lines you made. Do as much or as little as you want.
  5. For the tree design place one dot at the highest point that you want the tree to start. The bottom of the tree will be the widest point. Fill in middle like a triangular shape then make points to make it look more like a tree. Fun and easy huh?!?!?





Get Killer Nails with Office Supplies

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.

  1. Favorite nail polish (2 different colors)
  2. Tape
  3. Paper clips
  4. Sticky Notes
  5. 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.
