3-Step Nail Art Ideas You Can Totally Do Yourself

Create a beautiful at-home manicure with nail polish & nail art.


These at-home designs created by nail artist Holly Falcone look way more complicated than they really are. We promise!


Marble Nails:


Step 1

Pick two contrasting colors — the more different they are, the better this design will show up. Apply one coat of the lighter of the two shades to all your nails, then let it dry. Once it's dry, apply a second coat that's much thicker than the first.

Step 2

While the second coat of your lighter color is still wet, use a dotter tool to apply your contrasting polish.

Using the dotter tool, swirl your colors together. If your nails start looking a little too blended and you desire higher contrast, you can always add a couple more drops of the lighter shade. Let dry, then add top coat.

Just like that, you've got deliciously swirled nails!

Reverse French Tip:

Step 1

If you have longer nails, you'll love this look. Be sure your nails are smooth and filed evenly to make the most of your nail's natural rounded shape.

Starting about a quarter inch from the cuticle, paint a darker shade in a shape that mimics the curve of your nail. Let dry, then add top coat.

Ultra-simple and so chic, experiment with this technique using both trendy shades or more classic picks. And for an easy twist, use a contrasting color as the base shade.
