Nail Art How To: Chanel Designer Nails

Nail Art How To: Chanel Designer Nails

10.29.13

By James

We’d love to coat our nails in pearls, stones, and designer labels! But let’s face it: a girl’s gotta eat. Melissa (IG @melcisme) created an easy at-home manicure using polish, a few small stones and decals, and a set of Kiss Nail Wraps. The finished look is a pricey-looking blinged-out mani for just a fraction of the cost. Find out how to do it yourself! 

  • Supplies Needed:

     

    • China Glaze Liquid Leather
    • Wet n Wild French White Creme
    • Black striper brush
    • NYC In a Minute topcoat
    • Kiss Nail Dress Bustier
    • Rhinestone wheel from Claire's
    • Chanel logo decals from Etsy

     

    SLIDE 1 OF 6
  • Step 1:

    Follow the instructions on package to apply Kiss Nail Dress to your thumb (not shown) and ring finger. Polish your index finger black, and your middle and pinky fingers white. 

    SLIDE 2 OF 6
  • Step 2:

    Add a black half moon to your middle finger using the striping brush. 

    SLIDE 3 OF 6
  • Step 3:

    Add rhinestones to the half moon while the polish is still tacky. Then apply the Chanel nail decal as shown. Seal with topcoat. 

    SLIDE 4 OF 6
  • Step 4:

    Now add the embellishments to your index and pinky finger. Place a drop of top coat on your nail and place a large pearl on it. Quickly start placing silver microbeads around the pearl to form a circle. Repeat this step on each pearl. She used two on her pinky and three on her index finger. Then she added smaller pearls around the larger ones. 

    SLIDE 5 OF 6
  • Step 5:

    Allow to dry then add a quick dry topcoat to seal in the design.
