I've recently gotten into the habit of painting different designs on my nails, leading me to scour the web for awesome nail tutorials;. Im so used to painting my nails charcoal grey or black that my friends are always shocked when I dabble in bits of color. There is something about a great manicure that will always leave me in a good mood. As I'm never one to turn down any opportunities for saving funds, I find perfecting the art of nail design to be an awesome DIY project. Here is a list of nail tutorials that make it easy for you to keep your nails looking healthy and quirky all in one sitting!
