    30 Canadatastic DIY-Able Manicures For Canada Day

    Let's celebrate, eh?

    1. Subtlety is overrated. Spell out your love on your hands!


    Use a toothpick or striping brush to make letters!

    2. Or, show where your heart is with a cleverly placed flag of love!

    3. Nothing says Oh Canada like a great Maple Leaf design


    Look achieved with a stamping kit - Google 'Konad Nail Stamping', or 'BundleMonster Nail Stamping' to find patterned plates

    4. Draw your leaves by hand if you're steady under pressure


    This is not for the faint of art (see what I did there?)

    5. Check out this fab French-Canadian Manicure!


    Sometimes I am even too clever for myself.

    6. And this one too!


    Nope, no idea how they got those leaves so perfect. Guessing stamps or magic.

    8. ..Arcs

    9. Snazzy spirals

    10. And fab houndstooth

    21. Or, match and mix

    22. And don't be afraid to overdo it- holiday nails are made for fun!

    24. Or just focus on one fantastic accent

    25. Alternately, go for the split with dual-personality nails

    27. Won "Steadiest Hands" in the latest yearbook? Try this one on for size


    Who's an eager beaver now?

    28. Full flag stamps make sure no one misses your message
