Though these psychedelic bright nails were seen backstage at the Nicole Miller Fall 2012 New York fashion show, they are the perfect way to brighten up an almost-spring day.
Not only will the finished look bring a child-like grin to your face, but the process of creating these colorful swirls will be a blast. Mostly because the key to the look is that it shouldn’t be perfect and instead look homemade. Refreshing, huh?
To create the look, start by laying down a fuchsia base color like CND Colour in Raspberry Parfait, $9 (after applying a base coat, of course) then — using a fine art paintbrush — start creating coils of color with each of the following shades: yellow (try CND Colour in Bicycle Yellow), $9, orange (try CND Colour in Electric Orange, $9) and blue (try CND Nail Colour in Anchor Blue, $9).
Let the lacquers dry for a couple of minutes and finish with a clear top coat. Fun, right?
