Tuesday’s #NailCall: Tiny Prints to Paint
7 Start slideshow

Those of you ardently adoring nail art will agree—even tiny, dainty prints pack a lot of punch into a manicure. They definitely don’t have to be accented to each individual finger, either. Tiny florals are easy to create with a thin brush, a steady hand and some patience; polka dots couldn’t be simpler. The addition of these sketches can hide chips and the normal wear and tear a nail painted in a solid color will experience in a week.

When we turned to Instagram, we noticed a ton of standout manicures that utilized tiny prints, pictures, and doodles—some on each and every tip and others on only a select few. Click through this gallery to channel your inner nail artist. Don’t forget to upload your own mani to Instagram with the hashtag #NailCall and tag @BeautyHigh for a chance to be featured in next week’s roundup.
