Fancy tips are all the rage right now and fingernails2go.com has collected some simple ideas to dress yours up at home. No need to hit the salon!
  1. If you thought  cellophane tape was just for wrapping presents think again!  Paint your nails with a base color and let it dry.  Cut cellophane tape into fine strips and position on your nails as shown below or in whatever design you like.  Fill in the gaps with a contrasting color. Once dry, remove the tape, apply a top coat and you’ll have a trendy new look.
