THE TIP-OFF: BLUE TIKI MANICURE

Mia Rubie, nail artist and owner of Sparkle San Francisco, created custom nail designs for The Sephora Glossy.

Step One: Swipe on base coat.

Step Two: Choose your base colors. Paint on some as solids and others on half the nail, horizontally or vertically—there’s no exact science!

Step Three: With an eyeliner brush, draw lines with lighter shades to create designs like stripes, diamonds, and triangles.

Step Four: Finish with clear topcoat.

TIP: Neons can come out matte—use super shiny topcoat to keep them glossy.
