Try It: DIY Nail Stickers

I love a good nail design! Although I don’t get them often (a. because I don’t allow myself time to try them myself smh, and b. I’d rather get them done at the salon), here is a great DIY I spotted over at The Beauty Department on how to create your own nail stickers. I’ll definitely be trying this out….watch out Sally Hansen!

"It’s really hard to get clean lines when it comes to putting stripes on manicures. I’m going to share a little DIY secret– nail polish on scotch tape. You can cut a perfect line or triangle and get a fun geometric mani. Here’s how it’s done:

  1. You’ll need polish, scissors + scotch tape.
  2. Apply polish to your tape. Whatever color you want. Let it dry (I allowed 30 minutes just to be safe).
  3. Cut strips!
  4. Cut triangles.

When you’re done, apply them to a pre-polished nail with the sticky side down. Then give it a good top coat!”
