As we all know, Pinterest is a magical place where you can find tutorials for just about everything–even totally inane, simple tasks everybody already knows how to do. You can find out how to make your dirty hair look delightful, contour your face, and do some absurdly complex braids. But what about those pretty little hands of yours?
As somebody who has very long natural nails, I enjoy painting them in an attempt to make them look fancy rather than creepy. Occasionally, I’ll browse through Pinterest to find some ideas on how to make this happen. As of recently, I have noticed a ton of incredibly complicated and impressive nail tutorials that make me feel like a total failure at drawing, painting and just overall art. Prepare to be wowed.
That’s right: “Starry Night” nails. And they are amazing.
“From far away, it’s OK, but up close, it’s a big old mess.” (But not really because this is amazing.)
So much detail!
Perfectly done old-school tattoo font plus an awesome rose? Count me in.
5. 3-D drip
I’m always down for the paint drip (or blood drip) nails, but this 3-D twist takes them over the border to Awesome Town.
UM UM UM. THIS. FOREVER.
7. Cute florals
How cute are these? I feel like I could decorate a cottage based on this color scheme.
The gradient of the background is gorgeous.
5-year-old me (and every other age of me) is squealing with happiness.
10. Christmas mani
There are like six different textures in here.
11. Complex patterns
Such tiny patterns!
12. Galaxy drip
More drippage, more stars!
13. 3-D Lego nails
I need to show my 9-year-old nephew this. His respect for me will go off the charts.
Oh my goodness, a manicure that makes me blush.
Wild, but so pretty.
