THE TIP-OFF: SEA KELP MANICURE

THE TIP-OFF: SEA KELP 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 Paint on one coat of a milky sheer color. It makes the spots you leave bare look prettier.

Step Three Using an eyeliner brush, create small forest green dashes. Link them together to create a vine—and vary the design on each nail.

TIP: Play with shapes that come off the nail for a more organic and dynamic look.

Step Four Accent with baby blue and mint green highlight shades.

Step Five Finish with clear topcoat.

TIP: Balance one hand on top of the other—it prevents shaking!
