As a big fan of the colour pink, flamingos give me so many good nail art ideas. Unfortunately they are kind of hard to draw and my flamingos often turn out looking like swans lol. Here is the equipment and a quick tutorial of this flamingo nail art design.
From an asymmetrical French to emoji mood nails, glitter accents to bandana basics, summer ’18 nails are well, not at all understated. Here, art inspiration from Instagram’s most liked nail pros.
We’ll take any excuse to play with nail art, but National Nail Polish Day gives us the perfect reason. Taking place on June 1 annually, essie founded the day three years ago and it continues to get bigger every time. Nailing the perfect mani is the best way to celebrate. Plus, the start of summer kicks off the season known for experimenting with your makeup. “Summer is the perfect time to play with color, especially if you’re out of the office and going on vacation,” says Steph Stone, essie Celebrity Manicurist. “Brights and primary colors are in. Try experimenting with a multi-colored rainbow mani. If you like to play it safe, don’t worry because there is a neon for everybody that you’ll love.”
As for the old nail shape debate, Stone suggests shaping them based on how your nails grow. “There’s no right or wrong answer,” she says. “My main priority is to round off the sides to prevent any breakage or snags. I find that nail shape can really be more of a personal choice rather than a trend-based decision.”
