crafting for kids with Madolyn Oliver: easy nail art

Madolyn Oliver is back today with kid/teen friendly project for creating super easy nail art with everyday things!

I love fashion and accessories!  One of the ways I like to accessorize is with nail art.  This is easy and you can add a pop of color to whatever outfit you are wearing.   This is one of my favorite things to do when I have my friends over for a sleepover.  I can even talk my mom into sometimes.

You probably have everything you need to get started.

Geometric Nail Art

Washi Tape or Scotch Tape
Nail Polish

Cut tape into triangles

Place tape on nails with the top point of the triangle at the top of your nail

Paint your nails the color of your choice

Remove the tape while the nails are still wet.  Pull it from the base of your nail to the top.  

Let your nails dry and go and look fabulous!

Floral Nail Art

Cream or White Nail Polish
Light Pint Nail Polish
Green Nail Polish
Dark Pink Nail Art Pen
Stick Pin

Before you get started take your pencil and insert the stick pin into the eraser for a DIY dotting tool.

Paint nails with a base coat of cream or white

Use dotting tool to create pink polka dots on your nails.  Create 2-3 on each nail.

Use nail art pen to create three dots around the polka dots you previously created

Use the flat end of a toothpick and green polish to create two leaves on each side of the "flowers"

Use the pointed end of the toothpick and cream/white polish to create a flower center 

Let your nails dry and go show off your nail art skills!
