Graphic manicure ideas for rainy days at home

16 June 2015, 11:00

Let's face it, we all love a good manicure.

It doesn't even have to be perfect or done in a salon, it must just look fancy...

We recently spotted the wonderful nail work done by Chi Chi at Topshop's launch of Kylie and Kendall Jenner's fashion range for Topshop. She is a South African nail artist who is insanely creative - trust us, just check out her Instagram account.

So, inspired by her out-there, beautiful graphic nail creations, we give you a few manicure ideas to try on those cold, pajamas-weather days when you are kind of bored, but not bored enough to actually go outside and do something:

Army nails! Do it with Essie.

Go a bit psychedelic with these dreamy colours.

The negative space mani is so easy and looks unique and beautiful.

Do the classic French mani, but with a black and metallic twist.

The pinstriped monochrome mani.

Colour bonanza.

This might be a bit more tricky to master, but using an eyebrow brush can work wonders to create this effect. The look was inspired by the Kendall and Kylie Jenner collection for Topshop. 

Grey nails are huge at the moment! Mix things up and try it with one nail in a different colour - gold or silver always work fantastically.
