How to Make Easy Graduating Class Year Nail Art

To create my example nail art, I used my favorite adhesive foil vinyl for this quick Cricut project, but most permanent vinyl will work. What I love most about this nail art project is how quickly (and oh so tiny) the Cricut cuts all the numbers you’ll need. You can cut a full nail set or just a single nail accent like I have here. Use one color or the whole rainbow! have fun and personalize the look to fit your own style.

  2. Follow the onscreen instructions to cut the foil.
  3. Make sure your nails are painted, clean an dry.
