  1. DIY Color-Block Nail Decals


    October 14, 2012 by Emily

    Color Blocked nails are easily my favorite manicure look… it’s bold, graphic and not too girly or precious for my tastes. The problem with color blocking is that the edges need to be sharp and perfect to get the right effect, and I have notoriously shaky hands (have you tried painting straight lines on your nails with your non-dominate hand?! what a mess).

    This is where nail decals come in…sheets of semi-tacky nail polish that can be peeled off a backing, cut and then placed on your nails to create perfectly crisp designs. Any nail polish loving girl has seen the packets of peel-and-stick nail decals at the drugstore… but they are EXPENSIVE ($10 for peel-and-stick nail polish?! No thanks) and I’m not always in love with the colors they have to offer.

    What’s a manicure-loving, budget-minded DIY-er to do? Make your own of course!
