Thrifty Thursday: At Home Colored French Manicure Using Kid Stickers


 Have you noticed the trend for a Colored French Tip Manicure? You can easily do this at home, using kids stickers! Really!

As a SAHM, I don't find a salon manicure to be a good way to spend my money because I chip the manicure or break my nails so easily as I play with my kids and do things around the house. I do like a nice salon pedicure though. :) I am not nearly as hard on my feet as my hands.


It's simple! Just place circle stickers on your cleaned fingernails (wipe clean with remover to remove the oils).
Then paint polish over the ends. The stickers help you create a nice clean arched line. Paint on two coats. When they are dry, remove the stickers and paint over the entire nail on each of your fingers with clean nail polish.

nice job! I am not very talented in painting my nails, lucky if I do not paint my skin surrounding my nails!

Your nails look awesome! Really like the butterfly! Never thought about using a sticker before but it makes SO much sense... I have tried using the "nail wraps" which are like a foil that you shrink onto your nails with a blow dryer. They did not turn out great lol but I think I could pull off this method. :)
