DIY Holiday Nails


An easy way to wear your nails over the holidays is by painting them with holiday stripes.  I used Essie's "Bungle Junlge" which I have been wearing for days!  I then used Orly's Instant Artist in "Crisp White" and with a steady hand painted on thin, fluid stripes over the red at a diagonal.  I did about 4 stripes per nail.  With Orly Instant Artist, which I purchased at Ulta, the tip is so thin that you don't need to tape your nails for perfectly straight lines.  Besides, they don't have to be perfect, they just have to be festive and fun!

Your nails look perfect! I don't think my hand is steady enough to do that on my own. Recently I tried a matte version of a french manicure, that was interesting, the lines. I couldn't imagine having to draw several lines on each nail.
