Spring is here, which means that our nails can finally look cute (no more winter dry cuticles) and we can finally justify a pedicure (bring on the cute strappy sandals!) This PrettyCity shows article gives tips from celebrity manicurist Alisha Rimando who explains how to create a fun “ombre” nail look in only a few easy steps.
Other great manicure tips from this article:
- Bright colors are really “in” for Spring, so try out some fantastic hot pinks and electric greens, like the ones in Essie’s new “Neon Collection” which features Flirty Fuchsia, Funky Limelight, Perky Purple, and Punchy Pink.
- To keep your nails looking great between manicures, be sure that you choose a color at the salon that you have at home (or bring your own!) so you can easily do touch ups! Common brands at most salons are OPI, Essie, and China Glaze.
- Don’t be afraid to bring along your own base and top coats to the salon as well. Often times, the quality they use might not be as good as your own, thus causing premature and avoidable chipping. PrettyCity recommends Zoya’s Anchor BaseCoat, Armor TopCoat, and Hurry Up Speed Dry Drops.
