‘Tis the Season for Festive DIY Nails!

beauty /

Long gone are the days where we’ll ever take a trip to the nail salon for granted again. Thanks to the pandemic, most of us have been staying at home, as our new ‘manicures’ call for slathering on CVS polish from the comfort of our bathroom floors.

But why not kick things up a notch this holiday season?

That’s right, it’s time to toss aside that crusty old bottle of Fiji (not that we’re judging) because we’re about to give your nails a festive little upgrade. So keep on scrolling and prepare to get inspired. Here are the looks we’ll be rocking this fall…

Did you really think that our favorite (admit it or not) Fall guilty pleasure wasn’t going to the top the list? For our first trendy nail look, we’ve got none other than, you guessed it, Pumpkin Spice Nails.

So, how exactly can you channel the Starbucks sweet treat? Well, it’s actually quite simple. Thanks to SkinnyDip London, you can skip the mess with their colorful stick-on decals, for only about $7. Yep, all you need to do is peel and apply.

For our next seasonal look, we’ll be taking you right outside – minus the frostbite, of course. That’s right, thanks to our next little hack, you can channel those dreamy snowflakes teasing you from your window, without going outside.

So, how are we going to channel this look? Go ahead and grab one of those little bobby pins, stashed in the back of your night table. Now, gently pull those 2 prongs far apart, so that it can be turned into a crafty, little drawing tool.

Now that you’ve got your styling tool, go ahead and draw an ‘X’ over your nail. Keep in mind, this will be the main part of your snowflake, so be careful. Next, add a little cross at the center of the ‘X.’ Lastly, use that little bobby pin to dot the ends of those lines, and bam, you’re good to go.

Well, there you have it. Which look are you going to rock this season?
