Need a bit of nail inspiration to brighten up your Monday? Today we have three fun (and easy) manicures to put on your to-do list! These don’t involve stamping, stickers or any other tricky nail art tools (that’s for a whole other post Chicettes!) but simply a way to spice up your nails with polishes you (hopefully) already own.
This is when you paint each nail a different shade from light to dark. Visit The Nail Polish Project to see how Jen did her ombre look. If you’re after a quick way or you don’t have five polishes that form a gradual gradient, paint your thumb in any colour you like, mix white into that polish (on a plastic plate) to create the shades for your index through to your ring finger and paint the pinky (I have no idea what the ‘technical’ term is) white. I’m all about mint nails at the moment, so why not try a minty ombre mani!
The Statement Nail
This is a perfect way to use your favourite glitter nail polish without looking like a walking disco ball. Pick your favourite creme, your favourite glitter and you’re done! Recreate this exact look with Trophy Wife and Super Bass or pair Trophy Wife with something lighter like Fairy Floss to really make the statement nail pop!
Who wants boring old french tips when you can have fresh neon tips! Just dig out a neutral, a neon and you’re set! Neon is huge at the moment and this is the perfect way to get a little bit of neon in your life if you aren’t quite brave enough to wear it. You don’t have to stick to neon yellow either, I am loving this pink from the new Orly Feel The Vibe Collection.
How do you spice up your manicures?
