Hey there nail enthusiasts!
It feels like it’s been a while since i’ve posted a How-To nail art tutorial, so here’s an easy stripe design featuring colors from Essie’s recently released Winter 2015 collection.
Here’s what you’ll need:
All of the Essie products used in this tutorial are available for $8.50 each at essie.com, Ulta Beauty, Macys, Nordstrom, CVS, Target, and Fine Salons & beauty destinations nationwide.
Step 1: After applying a clear base coat to your nails. Apply 1-2 coats of Peak Show over all your nails
Step 2: Using Virgin Snow by Essie paint half of each nail periwinkle blue. It only took me 1-2 swipes per nail to cover each, but it all depends on the length of your nails.
Step 3: Using a thin striping brush, drag a single line down the center of each nail being sure to cover the divide of both colors using Apres-Chic a platinum silver.
Lastly seal in your cozy winter warm stripes with your favorite dry fast top coat. I used Good To Go by Essie for a fabulous streak free shine!
The best part of this manicure is it actually lasted me through my latest powerlifting competition! And an added bonus… it matched my t-shirt I wore that day too! 🙂
