To each its nail

Painting each nail a different color is a bold look but how about taking it a step further and painting each nail with a different design?! 


You can go with simple designs (like we did) or have more intricate and random designs. Whatever your preference, experiment and have fun with it. It's safe to say that your non-dominant hand will be a little tricky, therefore, practice does make perfect! :)


Tools we used:
Sally Hansen Nail art pen in white for the stripes
DIY nail dotting tool for the dots
Sinful Colors Professional: Snow me White
Essie: Turquoise and Caicos

Here are other nail designs you can use for inspiration:

  7. I love all the looks shown above, any tips on how to avoid chipping? Anytime I ever try to do a good job of my nails, they end up looking horrible because I'm sloppy, and they chip within hours, even with a good quality polish.
    Cute post!
    Ladies - I was happy to add you to my Blog Go 2 list on my page, I love your style and fashion advice. Hopefully it increases some traffic on your site! :)

    1. Thanks Rachel! That's a great question. Some nail polishes don't chip as easily. We come to find that OPI and China Glaze are pretty good. Make sure your nails are smooth around the edges and file them going in one direction to prevent rough edges and chipping. Always use a base coat before you apply nail polish to protect your nails and for the nail polish to have something to bind to. When you paint your nails make fast but clean, even strokes to prevent lumps. Always apply a top coat to seal in the polish and to prevent chipping. You can apply a top coat every other day if necessary. Nail polish does and will chip but this will make a huge difference. This may seem like a lot but in no time you’ll be saying “what’s a nail salon.” Ha ha!
