DIY collar nails tutorial
Collars are all the rage right now, whether they are a Peter Pan collar on your shirt, a stand-alone collar that you can layer or a necklace in the shape of a collar.
There are so many ways to get in on this trend that you've undoubtedly spotted on everyone from your friends to your favorite Hollywood starlet. One way to translate the collar trend onto nails is by spicing up an old favorite — painting the moon of your nails. But this way, instead of a painting a half-circle moon, you're going to make it a collar for the top of your nail.
You will need:
Two contrasting color nail polishes (I used Essie Wicked and Sally Hansen Celeb City) and reinforcement labels.
Step 1: Paint base coat
Start with a base coat the color of your collar (mine was silver). Let it dry completely.
Step 2: Cut label
Cut one reinforcement label in half (unless you want to use two whole labels for each finger).
Step 3: Position sticker
Position the sticker on your nails as shown to create the collar shape.
Step 4: Paint top half of nail
Paint a coat of your second color over the top half of your nail. Make sure you get the paint into the tip and corners by the sticker!
Step 5: Let dry
Let it fully dry, and then gently peel off the stickers. You can now paint a clear topcoat over it and enjoy!
