3 Fun Nail Looks


fun-nail-looks

Nail artist Miss Pop for China Glaze created nails designs that perfectly captured the spirit of the Betty and Veronica by Rachel Antonoff collaboration between the designer and Archie Comics. “Rachel Antonoff’s collaboration with classic comic book characters Betty and Veronica is full of playful, graphic prints. We wanted to bring those flirty exclamations and fluttering hearts to the nails,” said Miss Pop.

GET THE LOOKS!

fun-nail-looksFluttering Hearts
1.  Paint two coats of China Glaze White On White.
2.  Using a striper brush dipped in China Glaze Hot Flash, make short strokes to create a sketchy heart shape. The wonkier the better. Paint a couple red hearts per nail.
3.  Repeat Step 2 with China Glaze Something Sweet.
4.  Seal your hearts with China Glaze Gotta Go Top Coat.
5.  Be patient and let your nails completely dry. Then, using a fine point sharpie permanent marker, outline the hearts.

1.  
Paint two coats of China Glaze White on White.
2.  Pick the perfect China Glaze pastel shades Sweet Hook, Pink or SwimRe-Fresh Mint or Don’t Be Shallow.
3.  Using the brush in the bottle, get a good bead of polish on the tip. Drop it down about 1/4 of the way up the nail from the cuticle, and to the left.
4.  Repeat Step 3 to the right of the nail to reveal the heart.
5.  Allow a few minutes for your polish to set, then seal with China Glaze Gotta Go Top Coat.

1.  
Paint nails a mix of China Glaze White on White and Pink or Swim. Mix it up–just be sure to paint two coats and allow a few minutes for your coats to dry.
2.  On the pink nails, use a striping brush dipped in China Glaze Liquid Leather to create a rectangle up the center of the nail from the cuticle. It should end about 2/3 of the way up the nail. For extra comic flair paint a diagonal line on each side of the rectangle to make it look like a triangle without a point.
3.  Pour a little black polish out on a palette or piece of tinfoil. Dip a big ball dotter into the polish and dab it on the nail close to the rectangle to create an exclamation mark.

5.  Using China Glaze Stripe Rite in Best in Snow, add a little angled triangle to form the speech bubble.
6.  If needed, touch up your speech bubble with a striping brush dipped in Liquid Leather.
7.  Allow a few minutes for your polish to set. Then, seal your look with China Glaze Gotta Go Top Coat.
