Mani Monday: Painted Desert Nails

Monday, April 13, 2015

With Coachella coming upon us in just a few days, celebrity and fashion manicurist Deborah Lippmann has her pulse on the coolest nail looks to rock at the festival. Check out the full step-by-step below, featuring shades from her brand new Summer 2015 collection, Painted Desert!

Inspiration: “Coachella Music Festival has become the free-spirited girl’s playground and an event where we look forward to seeing boho-chic fashion and beauty looks prevail. Exploring the event’s spontaneous atmosphere and style inspired me to fashion a blend of playful and expressive new nail art looks. I updated the traditional negative space and ombré designs using my appropriately named summer 2015 collection - Painted Desert.”  – Deborah Lippmann, Founder and Creative Director
 
 
 
Get The Striped Negative Space Nail Look:
Step 1: Apply deborah lippmann Fast Girls base coat and let dry fully.
Step 2: Using French tip guides, or thin pieces of scotch tape (1/8-inch recommended), place two across the middle of each nail to create a total of three areas to paint. (Note: one color will ultimately be painted at the moon/base, one color in the middle and one color at the tip).  
Step 3: One nail at a time, paint a section with one of the four shades from the Summer 2015 Painted Desert collection: Shifting Sands, Terra Nova, Love In The Dunes and Desert Moon. Wait two minutes to dry. 
Step 4: Quickly and carefully lift the scotch tape or tip guides, then repeat steps 3 and 4 for the remaining nails. 
Step 5: Carefully apply a second coat of color to each nail with a nail art detail brush, waiting two minutes to dry.
Step 6: Finish the look by applying a deborah lippmann top coat, such as Addicted To Speed.

Get the Ombré Nail Look:
Step 1: Apply a deborah lippmann base coat, such as the new All About That Base.
Step 2: Think of the length of your nail in stripes of seven horizontal sections. Stipple the 7 colors in the following order from down at the base up the nail towards the tip: Shifting Sands, You’ve Got A Friend, Terra Nova, Let’s Stay Together, Love In The Dunes, Desert Moon and Come Fly With Me.
To “Stipple”, use a small nail art brush with a little bit of color on it to make tiny, uneven dots. Use a light, swift hand and a small amount of polish and quickly dab the brush to help blend the colors together. Wait two minutes to dry.
Step 3: Repeat step 2, waiting two minutes to dry. Working on the gradation of two colors at a time blends the easiest. Think of the dots intertwining to transition colors and create an ombré effect.
Step 4: Finish the look by applying deborah lippmann Addicted To Speed top coat.
