DIY Winter Ice Nails
Would you always rather do your nails yourself than get them done at the nail salon? For some people, going to the salon is a waste of money while other's are simply just too lazy. So, their go-to ends up being DIY manicures at home. And let's face it, that's not the worst thing in the world. If you're not looking for something elaborate, at-home manicures can be a great way to save time and keep a little extra money in your pocket.

That being said, we have an awesome and simple DIY mani just for you that will inspire some serious nail envy from your friends and family. So, do something different this winter and paint your nails ice-blue! While blue might sound a little too adventurous as a nail color for some people, the truth is, blue nails will make you cool as ICE (pun intended). This mani uses nothing more than a blue marker and rubbing alcohol, by the way! Here's how to do it.

You'll need:
  • Nail polish
  • Blue sharpie
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Cups
  • Brush
What to do:
  • Color cup blue with sharpie then add rubbing alcohol
  • Mix with brush and add coat on nails
  • Let dry then add a second coat
  • Let dry again then add glitter
  • Add your final coat of shine then let dry once more
Way to go, you've just created a fabulous at-home manicure!
