Paint nails like a professional

posted in: Arts and Crafts, Skill Based | 0

You will need:

  • A piece of cardboard/card
  • Scissors
  • A pen
  • Nail varnish
  • A paper towel


20 minutes

The safety bit

Please get your parent’s permission before using nail polish and check for allergies. Some nail varnish has a strong odour and they may wish to open a window.

Use a towel or paper to protect the surface when you do this, as nail varnish may stain.



Draw around both your hands on cardboard/card with pen


Draw nails onto the finger tips (any length nail you wish!) and cut out both hands with scissors


Use nail varnish to paint nails on cardboard hands – you can follow the professional nail paint guide below or freestyle!

If you don’t have nail varnish at home, you can still get creative using craft paint/pens/pencils to enable them to still join.


Once you’re feeling confident, you might want to practice on your own hands or friends/family and send your creations to GFS social media.
