In anticipation for my final presentation, I painted my nails to match my project. Blue and silver just like my model. I wanted to do something interesting with some vinyl strips I had leftover from my project and cross decals seemed like a good idea. I love how my nails turned out and it’s a fun and easy way to get cute nail art! (Much better than simple strips and mess free!)

What you’ll need:

  • Nail polish (I used Calypso by China Glaze)
  • A top coat (mine’s from Joe Fresh)
  • Thin metallic vinyl strips (you can also use nail art striping tape here)



  1. Paint on your nail polish like you normally would.
  2. Cut the vinyl into desired strip lengths, ten long pieces and ten shorter pieces to form a cross on each nail.
  3. Apply your strips onto your nails to form a cross. You should do this while the nail polish is still a bit tacky so it has a better hold.
  4. Apply a top coat and let your nails dry.
