I first discovered the embellished manicure trend from Zooey Deschanel’s twitter. She posts pictures of the elaborate, adorable manicures she gets from CHI nail bar in Beverly Hills. I thought, wow, I’ve got to try this place out. Then I saw the prices… $60 starting price for a manicure!
Why not do this at home for crazy cheap? If you’re like me, you’ll want to skip the lines and the money – doing your own manicure at home is easy.
First stop by Sally Beauty Supply and find the perfect nail decal. I chose these subtle, pretty flowers to accompany a light pink nail polish. You will also need to purchase a nail art top coat sealer, pictured below.
First apply a coat of the cina sealer. Follow with two coats of your favorite nail polish. Let dry.
Next, following the instructions from the nail decs, place one on each of your ring fingers (for the subtle and understated look… but use all of the decs if you want!).
Finally, apply another coat of cina to all nails. Done!
