August is upon us and with it, the last glorious weeks of summer. And what better way to celebrate those remaining beach days and vacations than with a festive mani to match the mood?
Step 1: Apply a sheer layer of base coat over clean nails.
Step 2: Next, apply two, thin coats of a sheer neutral polish and let dry.
Step 3: Pour a small amount of deep burgundy polish (we used Essie’s “Nailed It”) onto a small piece of tin foil. Then, using a thin nail art brush, paint two to three squiggles on each nail. (The more imprecise, the better.)
Step 4: Clean off your brush by wiping off the excess polish on a paper towel.
Step 6: Let your squiggles dry for a few minutes before sealing everything in with a glossy top coat. (Miss Pop warns not to press down too hard with the brush to prevent smudging your handiwork.)
Voila! A vibrant, party-ready mani. A final tip: Switch up the colors to fit any occasion or season. We’re definitely trying a tonal palette of lighter and darker blues for fall.
