When it comes to creative manicures, I am all about it. There is just one minor problem, I am not much of an artist and patience is not my strong suit (which are two very important components when it comes to nail art). I was on the search to find a solution, which is when I decided to make my own nail decals! These DIY nail decals are a surprisingly easy and totally fun way to spice up your boring mani!
Step 1: Gather your supplies. First you are going to need to choose your colors. I chose to use Parker, Stella, Natasha, and Oscar. You will also need a plastic zip lock bag, some decorative paper punches, and (if you would like) a pair of zig zag scissors. All of these items you will be able to find at your local craft store, except for the plastic bag… that will probably be located in your kitchen.
Step 2: Using the colors you chose, paint decent sized squares on your plastic baggy. You will most likely need about 3-4 coats. Let your colors dry over night.
Step 3: Once dry, peel of your sheets of nail polish. If they are beginning to bunch up or you are having a hard time peeling them off, they simply need more time to dry.
Step 4: Using your decorative paper punches, punch out the shapes you want to use for your nail decals. You can also use your zig zag scissors to create some fun decals (perfect for a chevron manicure)!
Step 5: Paint your nails and let them dry fully. Paint one layer of top coat & place your decal on your nail. Let it dry.
Step 6: Seal off your decals with another layer of top coat, and you are good to go!
