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.

7. Ok, leaves are hard. Take a look at these patterned pretties. Dots..

10. And fab houndstooth
