Nail Candy

50+ Ideas for Totally Cool Nails

From tough leather-and-spike looks to sweet and simple polka dots, from hilarious comic-book nails to far-out galaxy ’dos, this book will teach anyone how to give themselves truly creative manicures—without a trip to the salon.

Nail Candy is a breath of fresh air for nail-art enthusiasts—it’s sassy, fun, and full of DIY nail art tutorials that anyone can do. It contains more than 50 ideas presented in full-color photographs and cute line-art illustrations that show readers exactly how to achieve a certain style, ranging from arty to girlish to hardcore and more.
