essie mint apple candy

Galaxy Nails! This was partially inspired by The 100, which I recently started watching! 😎 

Polishes used were: 
• Starry Starry Night and Mint Candy Apple by Essie
• Mr. Positivity by Sephora Formula X
• Peacock by Joe Fresh
• Lacey Lilac and White On by Sally Hansen
• Wuthering Heights by A England
• Fairy Dust by China Glaze

Unfortunately the holographic glitter in Fairy Dust wouldn’t show up in the photo when my camera focused, but it’s there in real life!

Wrap yourself in little luxuries this #howtotuesday. Learn the look.

step 1: hydrate with apricot cuticle oil.
step 2: clean then prep nails with an essie base coat.
step 3: apply 2 coats of ‘mint candy apple’. let dry.
step 4: using a striping brush, delicately draw a ribbon looping across the nails.
step 5: draw two tear drop shapes and attach them at the point to create a bow on the ring finger.
step 6: shine + seal with an essie top coat.
