The racerback nail from Nylon Magazine 2012 in royal blue “jeggings” by Ginger & Liz

There are many ways to achieve this look - I prefer to start with a royal blue base. I then paint the semi circles on the four sides of the nail using either a striping brush or nail pen.

Next, connect the semi circles with your striping brush.

Always finish with a top coat!
