As you probably know, I’m obsessed with DIY nail art. I’m sure many of you are, as well, or know someone who is. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be rolling out various gift guides focusing on different obsessions so you can brighten that special someone’s holiday season that much more. Today, we’re all about NAILS!
One of the basics and must-haves for DIY nail art! You can use this tape as part of a design or use it to create negative space nail art. Best of all, you can get it from Amazon for $2.00! A great stocking stuffer!
Nail decals are a great way to fake nail art. Instead of working meticulously to draw on designs, just slap on sticker when your nails dry, and apply a top coat. My two favorite brands are NAILTHINS and Cover It In Vinyl – both available on Etsy.
Another great way to fake nail art! This time you can feel like you’re back in Kindergarten doing arts and crafts with stamps. These kits come with stencils and a stamper so that you can choose from any color of your choice from your personal collection. This kit from Amazon for $35.00.
Every good nail art aficionado knows that there’s nothing like a good gel mani to keep your nail art in tact for longer than five days. Sephora has a few to choose from, including the Ciaté London Geltox Starter Kit, Deborah Lippmann gel lab pro, and butter LONDON Patent-Gel Top & Tails
If gel isn’t your thing, then the Seche Vite top coat is the next best option. It hardens, shines and quick-dries your nails. Ricky’s sells the bottles for $10 each, but Amazon offers better deals like this one.
Another must-have in a DIY nail art junkies arsenal – rhinestones! This type of DIY nail art takes a bit more patience and isn’t for everybody, but any obsessed nail art gal is certain to give it a whirl! They’re also pretty cheap, so it’s definitely worth it.
SPRAY PAINT NAIL POLISH
The newest nail item to hit the market is nail polish spray paint. Buzzfeed did an article on this a few weeks ago, and my friends all reached out to me immediately telling me I have to try it. I can’t wait to try it when it’s available in the Spring! In the meantime, print up a cute coupon for that nail art junkie in your life that one of the first bottles on the market will be theirs!
