A cool idea for nail design is to create a theme to match your nails to the outfit you are wearing. Mix colors and shades for a fun, funky palette! Here are three nail ideas you can try if you have some time.

Nails Wear the Tux! - EASY
  1. Paint your nails with a white polish as the base color
  2. Make two huge dots at the base of the nail in black polish
  3. Next, use the black polish to create a smaller dot in between the two dots to create the bow tie.
  4. Create three similar sized dots below the bow-tie.
  5. Lastly, paint the tip of your nail with black polish, like you would with a French style manicure.
 Polished Kicks! - MEDIUM
  1. Apply two coats of your favorite bright-colored base coat.
  2. Make two wide X’s down the center of the nail in white and also do a French nail effect at the bottom.
  3. Draw a thin black line through the white French nail effect on top.
  4. Put small black dots where the white X’s connect.
  5. Wait for it to dry and then put on a topcoat.
Read All About It! - HARD
  1. Apply two coats of any polish in a light to medium shade. Choose a creamy color for best results.
  2. While your nails are drying, get a newspaper and cut ten two inch strips, then set aside. You will apply newspaper only after nails are completely dry.
  3. Dip the whole nail in a small bowl of rubbing alcohol. Then, dip one newspaper strip into a small bowl of rubbing alcohol and shake it out.
  4. Put the newspaper directly on the nail bed and don’t move!
  5. Take an alcohol-dampened paper towel and apply light pressure on the nail like a temporary tattoo.
  6. After 10 seconds, slowly peel off the strip of newspaper. Once you pull it off you will see the newspaper imprint on your nail.
  7. Repeat this process on each nail.
  8. Allow nails to dry for five minutes then polish with a topcoat.
