I mentioned in my last nail art post that I’m not exactly adept at nail art, and this is unlikely to change anytime soon. Luckily, there’s a whole industry aimed at butterfingered fools like me, producing all sorts of wonderfully tacky DIY nail art products that let you wear everything from the american flags to oil paintings on your fingertips. As a girl with fundamentally questionable aesthetic judgement, I went for good old nail stickers.

This is the easiest thing – you paint your nails (optional), cut out your sticker (like those rub-on tattoos of boy bands and puppies we all loved as a child) and press it against your nail. Tada. Art! I added some top coat to keep them in place, and there you go. [Gordon Ramsay Voice] Ugly-cute rose manicure – DONE.

Note: These aren’t the most durable high-quality stickers on the planet, so they kind of ripped and broke as I applied them. Let’s call it a grunge look, then.
