We’ve got an easy nail art tutorial here from nail artist and hip mama, Metta Francis from Nails By Mets. When she turned up at our studio with palm trees painted on her nails, I knew we were in for a treat but not all of us are pro enough to paint nautical landscapes (yet, we’re working on it!), so we asked her for a simple look that anyone could do.
I love crazy nail art, but I worry that sometimes I can’t carry it off day to day but Mets has come up with a look that’s simple enough to suit a grown up, but more interesting that your regular plain polish… and with her technique, it’s easier than it looks.
Two different nail polish colours – we used orange and gold
A clear topcoat
A nail file and nail polish remover
Step 2: Paint two thin coats of your nail colour of choice. It’s better to paint a few thin coats than one thick one, it will end up being smoother and you’ll end up with a neater result.
Step 4: Apply a fast drying top coat to give a smooth, glossy finish to your manicure!
