Hey, I'm Kelsey from Artichoke Designs. When Thursday asked me to take part in the In Bloom blog party I couldn't resist! Lately I've been taking my creativity out on my nails. I'm going to show you an easy how-to for fun and stylish nails without breaking the bank.
nail polish of your choice
top coat nail polish
nail polish strips (I used the Sally Hansen ones)
the little stick that comes with the strips
Step One: Cut one of the nail polish strips into ten pieces. Make sure they're wide enough to cover your nail from side to side. I used the widest strip. The excess will be trimmed later.
Step Two: Paint your nails. I put two coats on and let them dry. Since I'm awesome at making messes I usually do one hand at a time.
Step Three: Put the nail polish strip on your nail. Press down and stretch it across from one side to the other.
Step Four: Use the little stick that came with the nail polish strips or a toothpick to trim the extra bits. Push the stick into the sides of your nail to "tuck in" the sides. Continue with each finger.
Step Five: Put the top coat on. Once it's dry you can move on to your other hand and you're done!
