I've been spending my days off from school scouring the web for intricate and stylish YouTube manicure tutorials. After cataloging the amount of videos that I use as references and for inspiration, I think that it is safe to say that I have definitely become a believer in the saying "Practice makes perfect". DIY manicures are becoming a new hobby of mine that I am enjoying. YouTube manicure tutorials just may draw you in the next time you're looking for new styles to sport on date night.

Manicure for Beginners
I have to say that this is one of my top YouTube manicure tutorials to turn to when I'm in need of a touch up. YouTube user "LaFemme5278" explains the step by step process so clearly that its easy to achieve a professional look for less. I don't think it's possible for me to be any happier at finding this than I already am!
Matte Black French Manicure
I've been obsessing over the matte nail polish look for so long because I never thought it'd be possible for me to do it on my own. This video tutorial by "xemmmx" will help you replicate this classy and chic design in under five minutes. Can it get any better than that?
Ombre Dip Dye Nail Art
I still can't close my mouth whenever I stare at the finished product of this next tutorial by "SimpleNailArtDesigns". I am floored at how abstract and amazing the result looks. Requiring a nail striper and a totally hot set of nail polish shades, this tutorial for ombre dip dye nails manages to get rid of the step involving a sponge and I am more than okay with that.
Glossy Black Zebra Nail Art
Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge fan of anything and everything animal print (more specifically, leopard). I accidentally stumbled on this tutorial by "cutepolish" and couldn't have been more pleased after watching it; she makes it look so easy!
Mermaid Nail Tutorial
As a self-proclaimed mermaid, it should be obvious that there is no chance of me skipping out on mentioning this next magical video. User "elleandish // Janelle" captures a piece of my heart by showing how to perfect the mermaid scale look via nail stamping. I wish that I could give her all of the awards.
Valentine Inspired Nails
If these sassy manicures don't inspire an awesome outfit for your next date night then I don't know what will. Not only are these designs perfect for Valentine's Day, they will definitely catch everyone's attention. The contrasting shapes and colors are certainly the best aspect of this three-in-one nail tutorial by "MissJenFABULOUS". Who knew that being a trendsetter could be so easy?
Matte Leopard Nail Tutorial and Halfmoon Manicure
Lastly, this look from YouTube user "Mod Nails" blends my two favorite nail trends that I mentioned earlier: matte nail polish and leopard print. This one took me a little longer to copy because my right hand shakes a little since I am left handed. However, when I finally got it right, none of my friends were able to wipe off the smug little look that I had on my face for days.
I am always looking for more fabulous tutorials on creating my own nail designs for less. Which YouTube nail artists do you follow? Are there any designs in particular that you find yourself sporting often?
