It’s no secret that having a professional manicure can make you feel put together, but going to the salon can take time and be hard on your wallet. Luckily, there are lots of cool, easier designs that you can do right at home with minimal effort and tools.
Glitter French Tips
This design is simple and elegant, and looks like you just came from the salon. To easily create this look, paint your nails with your favorite color as a base. Gently press glitter on to your tips, push it down from the center, outward. Make sure not to press too hard, and enjoy your glamorous, sparkly nails!
Polka Dot Nails
Polka dot nails are so much fun! The colors and designs can be customized to fit any look or occasion. Start by painting your nails with the color of your choice. Use a smaller dotting tool or even a toothpick dipped in a differen color, and gently press on to the nails. If you’re feeling adventurous, make sure to mix up the colors and patterns for an extra fun look!
Tie dye nails look really cool and are relatively simple to do. Start with two colors of choice, one light and one dark. Gently brush the colors together, moving your brush in a swirl motion. As you add colors, slowly build the design up until you have the look you want. This adds a fun, summery feel to your nails, and is a great way to express your style!
Calling all outer space lovers! It’s time for a cool mani that shows off your love for the stars. Start off with a black base coat on your nails. To create the stars, use a dotting tool or toothpick to add white details, and dark blue and teal for a true night sky look. Silver and gold paint can also be used for a shimmering effect.
Criss Cross Nails
This style is perfect for someone who loves the classic black and white look. Choose a clean white or light color as the base color. Use a striping brush dipped in black polish and carefully start crisscrossing the lines. You can choose to go thinner for more of a grid look, or to thicken up the lines for a more graphic design.
These are just five of the many cool nail designs you can try! With so many cute and trendy options, the possibilities are endless. Have fun experimenting with different colors and patterns, and create looks all your own!
