This past sunday weather was super beautiful here in Montreal, it inspired me to try out some nail art that I had originally seen on the essiepolish instagram account that seemed fairly easy to do.
Polish used for this look:
Mint Candy Apple ( base)
In the Cabana (first coat of side stripes)
Pret A Surfer (Second coat of side stripes x Solid coat at side of nail
First things first begin with your clear base coat to protect your nails :
I like to use Essie’s Grow Faster and let dry /
Now apply “Mint Candy Apple” and let dry
Once “Mint Candy Apple” has dried use ” In the Cabana” and wipe away from nail brush until you will see paint stokes on your nails (see photo below)
Next continue same technique but with using polish ” Pret A Surfer” wiping away excess nail polish from brush allowing it to create paint brush strokes.
Now last but not least use ” Pret A Surfer” and create a solid brush stroke on side of nail (see photo below)
