Pixie Lott is not often without a statement manicure, and this recent Nails Inc style has really got us talking.
Going all out, Miss Lott opted for a unique wave-effect finish, in a bold trio of colours. And we think this winning look can be created without the help of a pro. Just follow these simple steps to get this mega-mani for yourself.
First, do a little nail prep and buff and file to your desired shape, then apply a base coat to protect the nails.
Start with your ring finger, applying a light pink hue (try Topshop’s Nails In Obey). Then, coat each remaining nail with a bright white.
Then the tricky part. Carefully brush the Nails Inc Seven Dials turquoise shade across each nail horizontally, creating a slight wave as you paint. Continue this technique until each nail is done, making sure to allow plenty of drying time between applications.
Finally, take your black polish (our favourite and purse-friendly pick is Mavala’s, below) and as before, apply in a wave motion to the tips of the nails. And that’s it.
So super-simple, we think you’ll have professional-looking nails in no-time. And the best bit? Any slight slip-up’s are guaranteed to go un-noticed thanks to the wave-effect finish.
Finally, add a slick of top coat to keep your statement mani chip-free and long-lasting, and you’re good to go…
