- A white polish (Essie in Blanc)
- 3-4 spring colors of your choice (Pure Ice Home Run, After Hours, Butter London Cheeky Chops)
- Black liner (Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen)
- Base Coat (Butter London Nail Foundation)
- Top Coat (Butter London Quickdry Topcoat)
Step 1: Always apply a base coat first. Applying a base coat not only makes your polish last longer, but it also protects your nails from discoloration and keeps them healthy.
Step 2: You're going to start out by painting all your nails white. The white nail polish will help the colors stand out by revealing their true color.
We used Essie in Blanc ($8.00). It gives a great opaque finish.
Step 3: Using your selected colors, create box like designs of different sizes. We started with Pure Ice in Home Run ($1.99)
For the second box, we used Butter London Cheeky Chops. Don't worry about mistakes or overlapping, the black polish in the next step will cancel out any errors.
Here we are at 3 colors. We're adding one more in for good measure.
We finished up the look with Pure Ice in After Hours.
Step 4: After you have created your boxes, use the black detail polish brush to separate or "box out" the colors where they meet.
It should look something like this. The lines don't have to be perfect but they should line the outsides of each box completely.
Step 5: After you have done lining the boxes and the paint is slightly dried, apply a top coat to seal in your design.
These 5 simple steps literally take less than 15 minutes altogether.
