I don’t know about you, but I’ve definitely let the cold winter weather take a toll on my nail care, which is obviously not okay. Nothing makes me sadder than looking down at my nails and seeing random flakes of chipping polish (not to be dramatic or anything). Since I’m so upset by the current state of my nails, I figure it’s time for another Manicure Monday post. It’s been a while, and I think we are all desperately in need of some new nail art inspiration in our lives! Hopefully, these amazing nail art ideas will help you beat the bad manicure blues.

I was so skeptical about cheetah nails, but believe me, they are much easier than they look! Pair it with an ombre nail for an ever fiercer look. Watch this video to find out how!

You only need a coat of white polish for this look, and let Sharpie do the rest! Check out Chelsea’s blog to learn how.
