Mini Formal Wear Manicures
These Tuxedo Nails are Snazzy and Sassy

By: Marie C. Hudson (Star) Feb 15, 12

Awards season is in full swing, and while not every girl can afford to sport the latest couture gown to an Oscar viewing party, this ‘Tuxedo Nails’ manicure is a sure way to add glam to any ensemble.

Created by Mary of Swatch and Learn, this DIY design uses lacquers and tools you probably already own, and is a cost-friendly alternative to a salon manicure. While the design might seem tricky at first, the key to perfecting this posh look is patience—and a great top coat won’t hurt either! Using a nail dotting tool (or even just a toothpick) for detailing, you can transform solid-colored nails into this sophisticated design—and for an even quirkier look, Mary suggests trying out a variety of colors.

Inspired by Zooey Deschanel’s tux-adorned nails at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards, these Tuxedo Nails are the perfect way to add a playfully posh touch to your next formal event.
