Do-it-yourself nail styles are great–you can create them whenever you have some free time, and there is no need to travel to a nail salon, or make an appointment, or pay someone else to make your nails look great. Of course, the downside to DIY nail designs is that they can be difficult to execute, as they hardly ever turn out quite the way you envision. Sticking with styles that are easy to do often means that your nails won’t stand out and will be, well, boring.
Over at BeautyHigh, there is a guide to five runway-inspired nail styles that are creative yet straightforward for most people to do. They shouldn’t take much time to complete, but the results are unique designs that will make your nails look great. These nail polish styles truly are not something you see everyday; they include one-line designs, C-shapes, stilettos with bold colors on only the tips, glitter half moons, and a combination of half-moons and French tips.
The guide has very simple instructions so you can create these uncommon DIY nail designs without a struggle.
