Nail Designs~ Renee Arnold

With social networking sights such as tumblr, instragram and pinterest gaining popularity by the day, you probably have seen many examples of intricate nail designs that you want to know how to do. Nail designs are unique because they stand out and give a little break from the standard solid color or French manicure.

This design can be used with any compatible color combination and can be completed by using a toothpick or specially designed nail tool to simply create little circles in a loop around your nail. Depending on the colors you use this can be extremely casual or very dressy. For a special touch, you can add little jems which can be bought at a convenience store and use them in the middle of the circles.

Next, this design can be created one of two ways. First, if you don't feel like doing the designs yourself, you can purchase sticker flowers and tips but fake tips can over time ruin your nails by making them soft and weak so just be careful. However, you can buy supplies that help you paint French tips on your real nail and draw flowers. This however can be time consuming and potentially frustrating so don't try unless you're up for it!

Lastly, when all else fails, go freestyle! I love this design because all it consists of is a base color and random sparkle streaks that somehow look very neat and fashion forward.

Don't be afraid to experiment when it comes time for an at-home manicure! If anything, being an individual is encouraged these days! Just look at Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga or other eccentric fashion icons.
