Nail art designs at Salons and Nail Spas are great if you have the time for it and of course money. What about getting some fabulous looking nail art designs at home with a few basic things like toothpicks and a simple adhesive tape like Sello tape. With these in hand, you don’t have to shell out money for a proper nail art stamping kit either. Toothpicks are good applicators for making intricate designs or simple stripes on your nails.

How to do nail art at home
Nail art with toothpicks
Stripes and polka dots are the easiest designs you can create with a toothpick. If you are a good artist, go in for hearts, floral designs or anything theme based like a nice summery beach, a hat, butterfly, lettering etc.
Paint your nails in the base color. Allow this coat to dry completely before taking up anything else. Next dip a toothpick in a darker color, wipe off excess with tissue paper or cloth. Proceed to draw stripes, polka dots or whatever you fancy. Check out these cool designs that you can make with a toothpick.

Nail Art With Tape
My personal favorite, nail art with tape is a bit time consuming as compared to the toothpick thing. However, it gives you amazingly uniform striped patterns.
Cut off a piece of cello tape. Cut this piece into thin long strips or short fat strips. Allow these strips to adhere to the drinking glass or onto the glass top of your center table. Apply a base coat on your nails. Allow your nails to dry completely. Stick these strips of tape on your nails in horizontal, vertical or zigzag fashion. Apply another nail polish color to your nails over these strips. Allow to dry. Once dry, pull off the strips of tape. You’ll get some fantastic nail art patterns this way!
