Style Play Polish: Summer Festival-Inspired Nails

LBS is going to Coachella (she's actually on her way now)! YAY x100! For those of you who have no idea what that is, no biggie. It's only the biggest art and music festival on the West-Coast! One of the first things that comes to mind when someone says Coachella are bright & vibrant colors, from stage set ups to spectator's sense of fashion. For this week's Style Play Polish segment I decided to paint a little ode to Coachella 2013 in 5 easy steps:

What you will need:

- Base coat (Butter London Nail Foundation)
- 3 bright, pastel, or neon colors of your choice (Sephora's "I Want Candy" 3-piece set)
- A round tip pencil or pen
- Top coat (Butter London Hardware Quick Topcoat)

 Step 1: You can choose to paint your nails different colors, or use the same uniform pattern.

Step 2: Using one of the colors, polish 3 free hand strokes over the first color creating a ruffle like pattern on your nail.

Step 3: After each layer dries, continue with step 2 until you are satisfied with your design.

Step 4: If you want to take your nail design a step further, use the tip of your pen or pencil (or a dotting tool) to create a lace like effect on each ruffle corresponding with the color underneath.

Step 5: As always, let dry, and apply your top coat to seal it in seal it in!

Stay tuned for next week's post! Music video inspiration anyone? Don't forget to share with us your Coachella inspired nail looks @LoveBrownSugar on Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook!
