DIY Nail Art Tutorial & Free Nail Polish!

If you are like me and like to save money, you’ve probably also tried do it yourself nail art projects. These can oftentimes be challenging and result in Pinterest fails. You know, the cracked polish, smeared kitten faces, lopsided hearts and more. They look easy but they just aren’t.

Well, here is a super easy DIY nail art tutorial you can do right now! It will definitely save you money and keep you from paying salon prices. Plus, when you DIY and it looks good, it can instill accomplishment and pride. Who doesn’t want to feel proud of their HANDiwork? See what I did there??


1. First off, you’ll need to apply one coat of pink (or any other shade) nail polish and then let it dry completely. Do your best not to test with your fingertip! I always end up making mine look like snakeskin…

2. Use a Striping Brush (or masking tape!) to apply lemon-lime (or any color) at an angle on lower portion of the finger nail. Let it dry completely before moving onto the next step.

3. Use a Striping Brush (or tape, applied gently) to apply purple on the tip of nail. Apply a clear top coat and you’re done!

How simple and easy was that!? The hardest part for me is always waiting until completely dry.
