7. Floral nail art
Love the idea of posies on your digits? Hate the idea of attempting to paint each petal? Use floral nail art stickers instead. You’ll be done in seconds. Kiss nail art flat stickers- Expressionism ($2.99, beautyonlinesupply.com and at mass merchandisers and drug stores nationwide).
8. Animal print manicures
Feel like taking a walk on the wild side with an animal print mani, but the idea of doing all those dots and squiggles makes you want to howl? You can get the same effect by using nail stickers. They’ve got designs as basic as dots and as wild as a leopard’s spots. Sephora nail patch art in Leopard Rocks ($12, sephora.com and Sephora stores nationwide).
9. Plaid manicures
Mad about plaid? That classic fabric pattern looks gorgeous on nails. You can achieve it two ways: (1) buy a lot of nail polish and thin nail polish tape or (2) buy pre-made plaid nail appliqués.
