DIY Easy Nail Art With Household Tools

Having some ‘Tints & Shades’ on your nails feel out of the world. Nail art is becoming a more divergent and boundless field. Applying a cool design on nails is one of my must “To Do- List” with my friends and cousins.

Here I am sharing some of my favorite DIY nail designs, that I and my niece created with few household tools only and of course, with some nail colors as well.

I hope they would inspire you to innovate more ideas but always take care of your nails as they say a lot about your health.

Take care of your beautiful nails

  • Always keep your nails moisturized.
  • Never use cheap or expired nail colors.
  • Do not try too many tools to do experiments with your pinky-ones.
  • Consider wearing gloves while doing the dishes or gardening or other wet work.
  • Take your nails a periodical break from nail colors as it’s good for their respiration system.
  • And last but not the least please….please…please do not chew your nails as nature has already provided real food to us so do not make your nails your time pass or your stress buster food.

Let’s start with our few creations, which we tried at home with household tools only.

abstract design

It is an abstract design created with paint-brush and toothpick. First, we drew black lines with sharpen side of toothpick.

And then, filled different shades with the help of zero number paint-brush. Then left it to dry.

After drying we applied the single coat of transparent nail-paint as it gives a finishing and glossy look to the design.

Orange Touch-up

This one gives a feeling of coolness in the hot summer. I took a synthetic sponge as it has more pores.

A synthetic sponge is easily available at home. you can find it as a dish washer sponge or car cleaning sponge or in any jewelry box.

So first, we applied masking tape around that part of the nail which we did not want to color.

Then just applied orange and yellow color on sponge together and patted the sponge on the tip of the nail (the grown-one part) carefully.

After drying, we peeled off the tape. Then I made some small flowers with the help of the backside of a needle. I put a dot and dragged it a bit and it looked like a petal of the flower. After drying the color, I applied the transparent nail-paint for finesse.

tribal texture

It puts a tribal texture with a twist of pastel shades. First of all, we applied any glue like fevicol, to the skin around the nail.

We used a thick sponge (not the face sponge), and put three colors (we chose yellow, pink and ocean blue ) all together on the sponge, and patted the sponge on the nail.

Let it dry for a while and after that, peeled the glue from the skin. Then gave a single layer of transparent color.

Let it dry, and designed some black polka dots on it, again let it dry and gave a final layer of transparent nail paint. This design strikes the perfect balance between a soft mood and a tough look.
