Always wanted to do that fancy manicure and pedicure without paying bomb for it. Well, here's an easy way to do it at home itself.

1 The French Tip: This is where a little trickery comes into play. Take a little tape (ordinary cello tape will do) and put it across your nail, separating the top from the middle and bottom. Apply the white polish and then just take of the tape. You're set with saucy French tips!

2 Funky Lines: Apply a coloured polish to your nail. Go with a strong colour like pink. Then take a toothpick and dip it in black nail paint. Now draw as you please on the dried previous coat to get a neo-modern print on your nails.

3 Dot yourself: Take a white permanent marker and use it to get the polka dots look. Then let it dry for 10 minutes and take a thin tip marker and add dots to the nail paint.

4 Add some sparkle: To get the rainbow glitter on your nails just take translucent or white nail paint. Apply a coat and before it dries, sprinkle on store-brought powdered sparkle (gold or say even black) and let it set. Your disco chic nails will be ready in 15 minutes.

5 Paste on: Paste ons are your best friends. You don’t need messy polish. Just buy paste on crystals, small stickers etc from the local stationery store or beauty store and just use them to accessories your nails within minutes.
