Fun Pinterest DIY Nails

My granddaughter is so into nail polish right now at 10 years old and she loves trying all the fun nail polish techniques so I thought I’d do a post on how to paint pretty nails.

My granddaughter, Faith, did these darling nails with some crystals I had in my bead supplies. She just went ahead and did her nails and then said, “Mimi (she calls me Mimi) take a picture of my nails. So I did. And here it is.

Then I went into Pinterest and there was a TON of DIY nails to do so I included them in this post also.
