This nail art is really easy to achieve as long as you have some tape (even a Post-It will do) and some spare time to kill. Start with your typical base coat and two coats of colour – in this case white. Then wait 30 minutes or so for the white to dry before applying your tape in a triangle pattern – or if you’re super organised you can pant the white the night before. Apply one coat of light blue polish (Chanel’s Coco Blue) and after 10 seconds remove the tape. Wait another 10 minutes for the polish to dry before applying two new pieces of tape about 1mm further towards the free edge of the nail. Apply one coat of a darker blue polish (Chanel’s Blue Rebel). Once again, wait 10 seconds before peeling away the tape. Wait 15 minutes before applying tape another 1mm closer and then apply the metallic blue polish (Chanel’s Azure). Wait – you guessed it – another 10 seconds before removing the tape and then finish with a top coat!
If you don’t have this much time, but you have a steady hand and a striping brush handy then you can work from the inside out rather than the outside in. Start with your base coat and then two coats of white polish. Then paint the metallic blue triangle. After that you will need your striping brush to paint the two borders – first the darker blue and then the light blue. Finish with a top coat and Voila! Picture perfect nails!
