Simple Nail Designs You Can Do at Home: Lines and more lines
Going to the salon can be fun, but after awhile it can get to be quite costly. Creating your own simple nail designs at home is not as difficult as you may think. All it takes is a little practice and a few ideas about what you can do with your nails. Think of simple nail designs as a form of art. Like art, you start off with basic shapes and keep adding details along the way.
Simple Nail Designs: Random Lines

This look may be the easiest to achieve because of its abstract nature. To do, apply one coat of colored nail polish to your nails. My suggestion is red. If you are giving yourself a pedicure, you only have to worry about applying simple nail designs to each of your big toes. Nail art brushes that you find at any beauty store are the easiest to use when doing nail designs, but if you do not have one, regular nail polish will do. You can also use a toothpick. Take black nail polish and make thin, random strokes that start at the base of your nail and shoot up from there. It is important to have very little nail polish on the brush so that you do not end up with globs on your nail. It is also important that your lines are thin. Your lines can start from the same point each time or you can have the lines come from different places. Two-three black lines per nail should do it. Apply a coat of clear nail polish and you are done! You have just created simple nail designs on your own.
