Nail Art Tutorial: Create Your Own Star Polish Decals

Follow these steps to get perfect star nail art without the mess. Melissa Fisk (@lissamel9) demos how to create your own shaped polish decals!

  • Step 1

    Paint a small rectangle of glittery violet polish on wax paper. Melissa used China Glaze Put a Bow on It as her polish color and the Uber Mat from Uber Chic Beauty instead of wax paper. Let the polish dry completely.

    SLIDE 1 OF 6
  • Step 2

    While you’re letting that dry, polish all your nails with a sparkly white or silver polish. Melissa used OPI It’s Frosty Outside.

    SLIDE 2 OF 6
  • Step 3

    Peel your dried polish strip off your mat or wax paper. Use a star-shaped hole punch (this one is 3/16") to punch out stars from it.

    SLIDE 3 OF 6
  • Step 4

    They should look something like this! Punch out as many as you can and pull them off to the side.

    SLIDE 4 OF 6
  • Step 5

    Give the nail a thin layer of clear top coat, and lay your stars on the nail. Cut stars in half with tiny nail scissors if you'd like them near the edge of your nail.

    SLIDE 5 OF 6
  • Step 6

    Add top coat to your entire design. Done!
