Now more than ever, it's time for your beauty look to make a statement.
More than ever, it's time for your beauty look to make a statement. The reverse French manicure can do just that for you.
You need to rock an avant-garde manicure just for this purpose.
While the precise lines of this design might make you nervous, don't fret.
Use a striping brush to make the lines sharp, but for the wobbly-handed among us, firmly planting your lower arms on the table as you paint.
"You're less likely to shake when you rest your elbows and wrists on a table — this will give you a sturdy foundation," Mimi explains.
Here's all you will be needing to know.
Step 1: Base colour
After applying a base coat, apply two layers of a cotton-candy pink to all of your nails.
Step 2: Accent colour
Using one coat of a turquoise lacquer, paint a circle that goes no further than halfway up the nail. You don't have to be neat with this step! It'll mostly be covered by the next color.
Step 3: Details
Next, take a striper brush and a beige nail polish, and create two shapes on your nail. A semicircle and an upside-down V. The semicircle should be about a fifth of the way down your nail from the cuticle, and the V should cut out a triangle on your blue circle.
Step 4: Fill
Using the beige lacquer's brush, fill in your semicircle and the outer sides of the V until only a triangle of blue and a crescent of pink appear on your nail.
Slap some clear nail polish on to protect your carefully created work, and you're ready to roll!
