Simple, yet pretty are the types of manicures that I tend to gravitate towards the most. I saw a pic of someone with unpolished nails and teeny tiny gold star decorations, and thought it was such a simple yet elegant way to add a little bling to your normal nail routine.
Really easy and really pretty? Where do I sign up!?
Start with clean nails that have been trimmed and shaped to your liking (this is a great all-purpose manicure set to have around).
Quickly use your wax pencil to pick up stars one at a time and place them on the wet polish. Keep placing stars until you like the overall pattern.
Repeat the process with each nail until all your nails have stars. Allow the clear coat to totally dry, and then use two more coats of polish overtop to seal in the design with dry time between each coat.
Once your nails are dry, add a coat of cuticle oil to keep your nails healthy, and you’re ready to hit the town!
You can also paint your nails a color first if you want a bolder look, but I do think there’s something about the stars on nude nails that gives it a really clean look. T
he thinner the confetti, the lower profile your mani will have and the longer it will last as well, so if you find a different confetti you want to use, just keep that in mind. Have fun! xo. Laura
