5 tools you can use to create salon-like nail art designs at home

If you are a manicure maniac (just like us), you probably hate roaming around with bare nails too. While it may not always be possible to make it to the salon regularly, doing your own manicure is definitely an option you can consider. If you think you won’t be able to create salon like nail art with embellishments or metallic detailing all by yourself at home, you’re wrong! With the help of some cool nail art tools, you are sure to take your manicure game to the next level.

We’ve listed 5 manicure tools below that you can use to create salon-like nail art designs at home...


Dotting tool


If you are a nail art novice, then a dotting tool might be the best bet for you to create on-fleek nail art at home. You can either invest in a nail pen or make use of pointy objects such as toothpick, bobby pin, orange sticks or pencil, whatever is available. Dip the tool into the nail paint (in a contrast shade to your base colour) and make dots all over your nails to achieve that perfect polka-dot manicure.


Striping tape


Use this super thin striping tape to revive your manicure game. You can either use these metallic tapes to enhance your nail art or to create super straight lines and then lift it away. A colourful striping tape can be of great help to all those who want to create graphic designs and straight edges on their nails without messing it up.


Transfer foils


Foil paper can help you create a cool nail art design. How, you ask? All you need to do is firstly apply a base coat of your choice. Next, apply a clear glue over top and then press and pull the foil paper away quickly, leaving behind imperfect traces of the foil on your nails. You’ll be surprised to see the cool finishing it leaves behind.


Striper brush


You can either pick a striper brush from any beauty store or use a thin paint brush to create intricate details and thin lines on your nails. Ensure that you clean your brush properly with a nail polish remover before dipping it into any other colour. You don’t want your nail paints to suffer, do you?




Your tweezer can come in handy while doing nail art at home. How, you ask? Well, it can be extremely useful in helping you pick very tiny embellishments that can complete your manicure and make it look like a million bucks. So, the next time you find yourself struggling with small embellishments and studs, you know what tool to reach for.
