When you’re a nail art rookie and you make a statement, like me, the idea of painting a whole hand with the same shade can be enough to make you chew your talons off completely. That’s why the statement nail is such a lifesaver. It allows you to dip your toe into all that nail art mania we’ve seen for the past couple of years, without having to enlist the help of a pro. It’s also a great way to funk up an entire outfit instantly.
Now I’m definitely no pro when it comes to the polish world – even painting my nails a solid color can be a trial at the best of times – so it goes without saying that these are not perfect, but after a little practice I’m sure we can all nail (pardon the pun!) the classic statement nail.
So get your polish collection ready and start cutting up your sticky tape as I show you five so-easy-anyone-can-do-it classic nail art looks you can do at home.
