DIY Bridesmaid Nails

If you’ve been browsing around for style inspiration lately, chances are you’ve seen much ado about nails. We happen to be obsessed with nails at the moment, so we made it our mission this week to feature something fun and easy your bridesmaids can do at home. Skip the salon, because this chic idea is oh-so-easy! All you need is your favorite polish, a pinch of glitter and a thick top coat.

Three Steps to Standout Nails

1. Paint all your nails (except your ring fingers) in your chosen hue. We went with Merino Wool by Essie… perfect for fall.

2. Paint your ring fingers in a soft, coordinating color. We used You Don’t Know Jacques by OPI… also gorgeous for this time of year. Make sure to do this step one finger at a time, as you’ll need to apply the glitter while your fingernail is still wet.

3. Glitter time! Making sure all your other fingers are out of the way, tap the glitter onto your wet nail. Then gently tap or shake your nail to get rid of the excess glitter.

4. Once the glitter sets, apply a thick top coat to keep it all in place.

Voila! Gorgeous nails everyone will be talking about.

If  you try this craft idea yourself, or if you have any DIY ideas to share, send your photos to blog@weddingpaperdivas.com and we’ll post them for all of our fans and followers.
