I love nail art, but the more DIY it is, the more proud I am to wear it. Okay, I save a lot of money, too! Here's how to make your own with stuff you have already have on hand.

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 2 bottles of nail polish
  • Scotch tape
  • zig zag or regular scissors


  1. Paint a little square of nail polish on your Scotch tape. While it dries, paint your nails with a contrasting colour.
  2. When completely dry, take your scissors and cut out thin strips. My example uses zig zag scissors for a zig zag nail decal. You can do plain strips or go wild with your imagination.
  3. Place your nail decals firmly on your nail. Trim edges with scissors.
  4. Ad

  5. Add a clear top coat for durability, if you'd like them to stay on longer.
