The Digi Nails – A Hybrid Manicure

The Digi Nails – A Hybrid Manicure
I’ve been seeing lots of outrageous nail art lately on pinterest. One hot new product that’s really caught my eye is adhesive nail polish strips. I love the funky designs and bold colors with these products, but they’re usually a little spendy for me. I have a great alternative and I’m super-excited to share with you a really fun, new way to use digital scrapbooking supplies! We are going to give ourselves a little hybrid manicure. To begin with, you will need the following: light color nail polish (white, light pink, cream, pale green, light turquoise, you get the idea….)rubbing alcoholsmall cup (I used a medicine cup.)digital supplies (laser print or copy)nail polish topcoat 1) Before getting started, quickly measure your fingernails. 2) Open a new Photoshop document and create for yourself 10-15 boxes that are a little larger than your nails. 3) Find some great papers that you’d like to have on your nails. 4) Print your page. 5) Paint your nails with your light colored nail polish.

For quite a while now, I’ve been wanting to try a waterfall braid in particular. It’s not much trickier than a French braid, nor does it require a lot of time to make. They’re quite romantic-looking, yet not too Heidi-of-the-Mountains. This waterfall braid took me about five minutes to do after I mastered the art (since I didn’t braid it around my head completely). For instructions on how to braid one, Lilith Moon’s waterfall braid Youtube video is incredibly helpful.
