4 Nail Art Looks to Try in Quarantine

Due to the uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic, many nail salons are being forced to close for health and safety precautions. Although it’s unlikely that you’ll be getting a professional manicure anytime soon, this doesn’t mean you can’t have your nails done. Now is the perfect time to DIY and experiment with your own manicure. Take some inspiration from the following looks and try them out at home!

 

Glitter Ombre

If you’re looking for a little bit of sparkle to brighten up your days inside, this is the look for you. Put on a coat of your favorite base color and paint two-thirds of your nail with glitter polish. For a more precise and neat application, try using a makeup sponge to apply your glitter polish. 

 

Minimal Lines

Although this look requires a steady hand, once you get your technique down you’ll have the perfect manicure. This minimalist look is simple yet impactful. To get the perfect line, use a nail art brush, a nail art pen or even a toothpick! 

 

Flowers

This next design is perfect for springtime. These dainty little flowers are cute without being over-the-top. Although this look may seem difficult, it’s actually really easy to replicate. Use a nail dotting tool to create your flowers. If you don’t have one, no need to worry! A bobby pin will do the trick. 

 

Multicolor

This design is probably the easiest on the list to recreate by yourself. For a simple yet sophisticated look, paint your nails different shades of the same color (or any colors you think look good together). Trying this is a super easy way to elevate a boring manicure.
