Reminiscent of vibrant Easter eggs and colorful wildflowers, just looking at this cheerful manicure is sure to put a spring in your step!
The best part? Using multiple polishes to create a “watercolor” effect keeps the eye roving vertically down the nail bed, helping short nails appear longer. Here's the super-easy how-to:
Step 1: Cut ten 2" squares of plastic wrap. Next, apply two coats of white lacquer (like Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color in White On, $3, at drugstore.com) onto nails; let dry. Then paint overlapping swipes of your favorite pastel polishes onto a plastic-wrap square. (Feel free to mix and match colors for a more customized look!)
Step 2: Immediately press the painted square over one nail and smooth it down so all the colors transfer. Carefully peel the plastic off and repeat the paint-and-press process on the remaining nails. Finish by removing smudges with a cotton swab dipped in polish remover and applying a top coat (like Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat, $6, at ULTA.com) to seal the design.
