Toenails are mini blank canvases that are easy to decorate in fun new ways, and artistic skills are not necessary. They can be painted with solid colors, a mixture of hues or in other creative ways. Professional services are not necessary when decorating the nails on the toes. After all, the designs will not last for long. Use these creative ways to decorate toenails, and design them to match or coordinate with clothing, sandals, flip-flops and more.
Paint Rainbows Using a Variety of Sparkling Colors
Rainbows symbolize promise, and what better way to decorate toenails than with the colors of a rainbow? It does not take special talent to paint these eye-catching designs on toenails. Simply begin with red, orange and yellow. This is the hot side of the color wheel. End with bands of green, blue and purple. The bands must be very narrow, and it will be necessary to paint them with narrow craft brushes instead of the brushes that come with the polish. Use nail polish remover each time the colors are changed to avoid contamination. Decorate the toenails neatly and carefully and the rainbows will look outstanding.
Add Bling with Tiny Stick-On Craft Gems
Specialty stick-on jewels for nails can be expensive, and they are not necessary when looking for unique ways to decorate them in fun new ways. Visit a craft store, and look for tiny stick-on gems in various shapes and colors. Use them to decorate toenails in eye-catching new ways. If they do not stick very well, add a tiny dot of clear polish to the spot before adding the gem. It will hold it securely in place. Apply several stick-on craft gems to the big toenails, and just one to the others. They can be used to decorate the toenails with flower shapes designed with gems, or they can be lined up in colorful rows and more. Stencils or pre-made designs for toenails are not required.
Decorate Toenails with Easy Dot Designs
Another one of the best ways to decorate toenails is with dots of polish. Begin with a background of polish in a color of your choice. After it dries, use dots of nail polish to create all kinds of shapes and designs. Tiny dots can be used to decorate the toenails with everything from five-letter words (one letter on each toe) to seventies daisies made with tiny dots of polish.
Cover Tiny Stickers with Clear Polish
Stickers especially for nails are not necessary when trying to decorate toenails in creative new ways. Go to a craft store, and search for tiny stickers in designs and subjects of your choice. Keep them in place with a coating of clear nail polish. Chances are they will look even better than stickers made for nails, and they will last longer and adhere better on toenails.
