Easy Nail Art You Can Do Yourself To Elevate Your DIY Manicure

To get adorned in gorgeous nail art, you could go to your local salon. Or you could do it yourself! Here are five looks that are easy and will elevate your DIY manicure.

1. Horizontal two-tone

This simple but stand-out look can be achieved with just two nail polish shades and tape.

    1. Paint your nail with your base shade of choice and allow it to dry.
    2. Stick a piece of tape horizontally across each of your nails.
    3. Paint your second colour over the exposed nail. 
    4. Carefully peel off the tape and, once dry, seal with a top coat.

    2. Polka dots

    Cute and festive, this artwork looks great on bare nails or over your favourite colour lacquer.

      1. If you want to apply a base colour, do this and allow it to dry.
      2. For small dots, dip a toothpick into your colour of choice and apply. 
      3. For larger dots, dip a cotton earbud into the nail polish and apply. 
      4. Once the dots are dry, seal your look with a top coat.

        4. Love hearts

        Want to wear your heart on your nails? This lovely shape is surprisingly easy to recreate.

          1. If you want to apply a base colour, do this and allow it to dry.
          2. Dip an old pen or pencil and create two lines, joining them at the bottom.
          3. For smaller hearts, dip a toothpick into your polish and do the same.
