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.
