Easy Manicures to Try This Month


If you're like me, you get bored with your nails quickly! I hardly ever have chipped nails because I tend to paint them again before they wear out! Here are 3 manicure styles that ANYONE with the right colors and a steady hand can pull off!
This is an adorable, sparkly version of a French manicure. You can make this slightly less stark by layering glitter over a similar color (navy glitter over a medium blue, perhaps?). 

White polish
1 large chunky glitter, Try Milani Jewel FX in Silver (drugstores)
1 fine glitter, Try "It's Bouquet with Me" SEPHORA by OPI (sephora stores)
ProTip: Dab on glitter polish, don't smear and glide. Dabbing allows you more control over the chunky glitter.
Nervous to try a bolder style? Add an accent nail! The ring finger is traditional, but it's really up to you! 

White polish
1 pale pink polish, Try Essie "Poppy Art Pink"  (drugstores)
1 opaque silver glitter, Try SEPHORA by OPI "Social Climber" (sephora stores)
ProTip: If you do a glitter accent nail, avoid glitter/shimmer polishes on the other nail to up the contrast.

Colorful manicures are super cute. Try all one color, or mix it up, like in the picture above!

Clear polish
1 pale pink polish, Try the Sinful Colors Line (drugstores)
ProTip: If you have a steady hand, try painting a line horizontally across the line. Too shaky? Use nail stickers as a guide line! Don't have nail stickers! Use blue painters tape!! (just dull the stickiness a bit by pressing it against your skin a few times).
