Punk French Mani Tutorial
Get ready for those end-of-the-summer concerts with this Punk French look. We called on nail art guru Miss Pop to create a step-by-step mani tutorial that will leave you ready to rock!
At Least I Pink So
Something About Spring
Quick Dry Top Coat
Tape (painter’s tape works well because it is less adhesive)
Nail Art Brush
Step 1 - Set the Foundation
Begin with applying a coat of 3-in-1 Base Coat/Strengthener/Top Coat, wait for it to dry. Polish each nail with two coats of At Least I Pink So.
Step 2 - The Diagonal Effect
After your base shade is completely dry, cut the painter’s tape into triangles and place them across your nails. Smooth out any air bubbles to make sure your next coat of lacquer doesn’t get under the tape.
Polish two coats of Something About Spring on the exposed part of each nail.
Let dry for just a few seconds then remove the tape quickly – peel it from corner to corner. Save the triangles!
Step 3 - Make it French
Once your last coats are completely dry, add a thin line of Razzle Dazzler across the tip of your nail with a nail art brush.
Step 4 - Add some Edge
Using your tape triangles as guides, cut a small corner off of each triangle, then reapply them your nails.
Fill in the gap with some more Razzle Dazzler to complete the edgy look.
Once everything is dry (wait about 5 minutes just to be sure), brush on a layer of Quick Dry Top Coat and you’re ready to rock!
