Festival Nails: Break out Your Brighter Side!

Beauty, Fashion, Fitness & Nails



Festival season is upon us ladies & nobody’s more excited than me at this moment!

Time to break out those open toed shoes, sandals & bikinis & let loose!

Since Essie just sent me their summer neon collection for 2015, I decided to try a fun and simple
design using a few colors from the collection.

Here’s what you’ll need to create these young, wild & free Summer Festival Nails!

For my base color I used Grove Is In The Heart by Essie a peachy pink neon over each nail.

Next I taped off each nail diagonally and painted in the center of every other nail and the outer edges using Coacha’bella by Essie a neon magenta pink.


  • Quickly peeling off the tape after I painted my hot pink layers I was left with a pretty crisp edge.
  • I decided to outline the edges of the magenta with Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low by Essie a metallic platinum nail lacquer.
  • Lastly I decided to add a few diagonal line of  dots in the centers of each stripe with Coacha’bella and Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low.

Add one coat of Essie Good To Go for a flawless high gloss shine & a quick dry finish and VOILLA!!!
