Cheap and easy way to get Chanel Inspired Nails
These were inspired by Heidi Montog's Chanel nails from about year ago that were white on black. I wanted to change mine up a bit so I did mine as black on white instead.

This was a trial and error and the how-to is the one that ended up working out the best.

  • How to paint a logo nail manicure. Chanel Inspired Nails - Step 1
    Step 1

    To make the lettering I used a greeting card program and had to play around to find a similar font - I think I ended up with Gothic around 16 pts. Afterwards I looked up online what font Chanel is and one website indicated that it is "ITC Avant Garde Gothic Demi", but hat is not something I had on my computer anyway. You invert one of the "C"s and place it over the top of the other C.

    Print off on sticker paper or paper (sticker paper will be easier to work with).

    I have tried uploading so it can be downloaded.

    Paint nails white. I used another coat after taking the picture for a total of 2 coats. Allow to dry completely.

    Cut out the "C"s as close to the edge as possible. For the centers I dipped in slightly but did not try to cut out he inside edges entirely.

    If you use paper, apply a coat of clear coat and place the "C"s in the center. Use the end of pencil or pen to push down all edges and allow to dry.

    If you use a sticker, just put the nail.

    Step 5

    Apply several coats of clear nail polish or top coat over the top of the nails. You might want to touch up the outer edges with a bit of the white nail polish between layers so it will better blend in.
