Nail Art Trends to Try When You Have 30 Free Hours

Nail art is super in right now, and anybody can do it! If you want fun, decorated nails, all you’ll need is some nail polish, brushes, and at least a full day blocked off on your calendar. Check out these cute and trendy designs you can try next time you have 30 hours set aside to fuck them up, over and over again!


Plaid Nails

Plaid nails are the perfect preppy look for fall! But you’re gonna need some extra-thin brushes to get those sharp lines right. You’ll also need to lock yourself up in your apartment with no distractions for 30 hours. One wrong move and the whole thing will be ruined! You don’t have to be anywhere for the next two days, right?


Tie-Dye Nails

These nails are so colorful and fun! And they’re sooo simple… as long as you can spend a full, uninterrupted day on nail art, give or take six hours. All you have to do its paint your nails, let them dry, and dip your nails in water with tie-dye nail polish on top. This last step will take you about six tries to get it right. Tricky, but sooo worth taking up the rest of your Sunday night!


3D Charmed Nails

Nail charms are all the rage! Take any small object, like a gem, pearl, or small birdcage and glue it onto a glossy manicure. It’s super important you allow at least eight hours for the glue to dry for this, though, because gems take forever to bond to your nail and one wrong move can ruin everything and you’re gonna fucking make this work, no matter how much you need to go to work because it’s Monday morning now.



Patterned French Tips

All this trend requires is a steady hand and a full 24 hours where you have no responsibilities, work, or social activity, which is great, because you just took a sick day! Use scotch tape on your nails to make geometric patterns, or get a small brush and paint freehand. The method is up to you, as long as you have the next 24-ish hours to make this perfect. Nothing is stopping you now.


Feather Nails

To complete this fun fall look, you’ll need an actual feather and another full day of your brief and fleeting life. You’ll have to find the perfect feather to complete this look, so make sure you leave plenty of time for plucking birds you find in the wild. Once you find a good feather, place it over a solid coat and paint! You’ll also need to make sure you have plenty of drying time, or else you’ll have to start from scratch­­ —

Haha LOL oops!


Van Gogh’s Starry Night Nails

People think Van Gogh’s Starry Night is an impressive painting, but imagine how impressive it would be if you could put the whole thing on your tiny fingernails? Just hide from everyone you know for the rest of the week. Every brushstroke will make or break this look, so don’t fuck this up.


Nail art is the biggest trend right now, and you don’t want to miss out on it! Just make sure that you’ve allotted a huge chunk of your free time to complete every look, or else it just won’t be right!
