Shay Mitchell’s Plaid Mani — How To Get Her Cool Nails
These plaid nails may look complicated at first, but they’re actually super easy!
Stephanie explains the inside scoop:
“On a clean and dry nail plate, paint all of your nails with two coats of RGB Cosmetics “Too Red.” Allow a few minutes to dry!
Paint two stripes vertically down each nail, equally spaced apart and parallel to each other. One stripe will be your electric blue (Ginger&Liz x MPNAILS “Private Poole”) and one stripe will be your army green color (Ginger&Liz x MPNAILS “Sam-Poole Sale”).
Next you are going to paint a stripe horizontally across your vertical stripes, closer to the base of your nail, using your electric blue.
For this step you will take your white striping brush and paint thinner white lines down the center of your blue stripes.
Next you are going to take your glitter striping brush and paint it down the center of your army green stripe! Lastly finish it off with a top coat and wait to fully dry before doing other activities! You don’t want to smear or dent your very detailed handy work!”
