THE TIP-OFF: THE SHAPE-SHIFTED MANICURE

THE TIP-OFF: THE SHAPE-SHIFTED MANICURE

Let your summer take on a whole new shape.

Summer is the season to try on new hats. Remember your best friend in elementary school coming home from overnight camp with a whole new nickname? In honor of those confusing but ultimately wonderful times, we bring you our newest nail look: Shape-Shifted. BECKY PEDERSON

STEP ONE: Apply a base coat and let it dry for two minutes.

STEP TWO: On your right hand, apply two coats of beige polish.

STEP THREE: On your left hand, apply two coats of dark brown polish.

STEP FOUR: Let your nails dry for two minutes. Pretend you’re a statue, and don’t move a muscle.

STEP FIVE: On your right hand’s beige nails, paint a triangle of dark brown polish with a thin nail brush. Admire your handiwork, and then add a second coat.

STEP SIX: On your left hand’s dark brown nails, repeat Step 5 with beige polish.

STEP SEVEN: Let your nails dry for two minutes. Pretend you’re playing that improv game “art gallery” where you’re stuck posing inside a painting (pick a pose where your nails won’t touch and smudge).

STEP EIGHT: Apply a topcoat.
