Today’s Manicure Monday is a part of a special series we’re doing with FOAM Magazine! For the next couple of weeks we’re going to be featuring a different O’Neill Girl from our team and a nail trend she’s into!
What we love about this Fireflies manicure is the fun and upbeat summer colors, and the unique dashing technique. Learn how to do this Heat Wave manicure yourself by following the steps below.
What You’ll Need:
-Orly Bonder basecoat (optional)
-Peach nail polish
-Orange nail polish
-Red nail polish
-White nail polish
-Thin pain brush
-Acetone nail polish remover
-Clear top coat nail polish
How To Do It Yourself:
Step 1: Get all your supplies lined up and ready to go. It might help to un-loosen your nail polish lids and get a small amount of acetone into a little bowl. Start off by applying the Orly Bonder as your basecoat to all your nails (this will prevent nail color from chipping or wearing off). Next paint all of your nails with the peach nail polish. Let dry for about 10 minutes.
Step 2: Using your thin paint brush apply a series of dashed lines to your nails. We used the orange nail polish and made 3 arches each about 7 dashes wide on each nail. Let dry for about 10 minutes.
Step 3: Next you will use the same dashed line technique to add a sporadic pattern of white and red nail polish dashes. Let dry for about 10 minutes.
Step 4: Apply a layer of clear top coat to seal in your Fireflies manicure and you’re all done!
