I’m in love with Samoan Sand (the nude base)! It’s officially one of my favorite nude colors. Thank you @caleelovesnails for sending me a bottle! It’s been a while since I’ve done anything animal print on my nails. I gotta say, I love how the color combo turned out! The bottle I’m holding is what I have on my thumb.

80′s summer nights by the beach! (Don’t forget a layer of regular fast-drying top coat before you go over it with a matte top coat to prevent smearing your detail work!)

Burberry-inspired nail art tutorial by elleandish

  • Red Fox - Nina Ultra Pro (red)
  • Sandstorm - Sally Hansen Insta-Dri (beige)
  • Alpine Snow - OPI (white)
  • Black striper - Stripe Rite

I decided to give this look a try because it looked quick(er) and easy(ier) than the typical nail art my favorite “nail gurus” do. There are a lot of Burberry nail art looks floating around on the Internet, but I followed Janelle’s tutorial (as usual). I think it probably would work better with a slightly darker/deeper red than what I used.
