Tuesday Tips: Miss Behave A Little With The Chalkboard Mani

Tuesday Tips: Misbehave A Little With The Chalkboard Mani

This week’s mani inspiration is the chalkboard manicure. The too-cool-for-school look features a matte black background with nail designs that mimic the whimsical, blocked strokes of real chalk in an assortment of fun characters. We found you a DIY kit, as well as some awesome free-handed inspiration on Pinterest.

Check them out, below!



Now you could grab the new Ciate Chalkboard Manicure kit which contains everything you need to recreate this look. Or if you have a black polish at home, all you need is a matte top coat and a nail art brush to create the designs using your existing nail lacquer stash. We love this tutorial from The Daily Varnish.

First apply two coats of the black polish and then your matte top coat. Once it’s dried, have fun playing around with your custom cute nail designs. It’s that easy!
