Nails without nail-art are simply naked and lonely. But I admit that I can’t really do my nails like the chick at the nail salon does. And even if I come a bit close (on the 5th attempt), I’m definitely not that fast. So if you’re like me and wish to flaunt some beautiful but easy nail art without looking like a 5-year-old painted your nails, try these quick and easy nail art manicure ideas!
The half-moon mani: I absolutely love this one! It’s so easy-to-make but still looks like a professional worked on your nails. Try it yourself!
Step 1: Use a punch hole sticker to make your half moon. Place it at the base of your nail so that 1/4th of your nail is covered.
Step 2: Pick any nail paint of your choice and paint the 3/4th nail that is uncovered. Ensure you apply an even layer and then let it dry.
Step 3: Once your nail paint has dried, carefully peel off the sticker and use a q-tip or a small old eye-brow brush to clean any mess.
Step 4: Repeat the same process on all your nails and finish with a top coat of clear polish. Wasn’t that easy?
Easy nail art stripes: I know you did that when you were in high school, but let’s be honest… it’s cute and you still like it, don’t you? We do too!
Step 1: Pick any two bright colours of your choice and you’ll also need black nail paint. Paint your nails alternatively with the bright colours.
Step 2: Once your nails are dry, use an old eye liner brush to make thin vertical stripes with the black nail paint on all your nails.
Step 3: Apply a top coat of clear polish and you’re done!
Graffiti nails: Ever thought random swipes of nail paint could look so artsy? We neither. But just take a look at this!
Step 1: First paint your nails with a dark hue like navy blue or black and let it dry completely.
Step 2: Take a metallic silver nail paint and dip the brush in the paint, then drag it against the inside of the top of the bottle to remove the excess nail paint. Use whatever is still left on the brush to swipe a few brush strokes on your nails. See the effect? Amazing!
Step 3: Using the same technique mentioned in step 2, repeat with a few swipes of another metallic colour on your nails.
Step 4: Once all your nails are dry, apply a top coat and flaunt your edgy new nail art!

Glitterati: Who doesn’t like a little bit of glitterati on their nails? Especially when it’s so easy to create!
Step 1: Paint your nails in a pastel shade of your choice.
Step 2: Choose a lucky finger, and while the nail paint is still wet, dip it gently in a tiny pot of craft glitter. Voila, glittery nail!
Step 3: Be careful while drying your nails as the glitter may fall out before you’re done. Place your hand on a sheet of soft tissue paper so that you can grab all the glitter fall out and put it back into the pot. Yay, no wastage!
Step 3: Once your nails are completely dry, apply a top coat (apply 2 coats on the glittery nail) to complete the look!
