How-To: Festival Nail Art

close formula

Coachella just kicked off this summer’s festival season, packed with bright colors and sunny days. Take inspiration from the fashion and bring festival style to your nails! Get the how-to below. This design, created by CND, is part of their summer collection: Rhythm & Heat. Inspired by exotic Caribbean destinations and tropical hues, the collection is available in VINYLUX® and SHELLAC®, which means your mani will last through multiple party-packed weekends.




1. Start with a thin layer of SHELLAC® Base Coat. Cure for 1 minute in the CND® LED Lamp. Apply SHELLAC® Shimmering Shores at the base of the nail only.



2. Then, apply two layers of SHELLAC® Palm Deco at the tip of the nail. Cure each layer for 1 minute.



3. Next, using SHELLAC® Sugar Cane, apply a horizontal line across the middle of the nail. Then create a thin “T” by painting a line from the center of the first line to the tip of the nail. Cure for 1 minute.



4. Finish the look by applying a layer of SHELLAC® Top Coat and cure for 1 minute. Wipe with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol to remove top film.
