Try It Tuesday: You Nailed It

March 5, 2013

Try it Tuesday is all about trying something that won’t cost you more than five bucks and it won’t take your more than 30 minutes to accomplish.

On this Try It Tuesday, I want you to nail it.

Nail art has come a long way from the French nail.

Use your nail bed to bring out your inner Michelangelo.

While I have a few old bottles of Chanel polish, my tips are just as happy with what I have picked up for a dollar. Going cheap will allow you to experiment with colors. Black. Blue. Grey. Metallic. The important thing, if you want the shine to last,  is to use a top coat.


  1. Try going ombre with your nails. That’s basically a gradient that goes from light to dark.
  2. Try an animal print. I free styled mine, but there are plenty of tutorials online.
  3. All that glitters may be the glitter that you have in your craft cupboard. Mix the glitter with you clear nail polish.
  4.  Paint every nail a different color in the same color family. If you don’t have the colors in on hand, mix the colors you do have. Recycle a plastic container to use as your palette.
  5. Try a new shape up your nails. I vote for square. 


Shine on!
