Nail Art Tutorial: Cinco de Mayo Stripes

Nail Art Tutorial: Cinco de Mayo Stripes

05.04.15

By semick

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with nails that won’t chip during your festivities – even if they include several rounds of Dos Equis and Patron. Incorporate spring colors, the geometric trend, and even a mustache (yep, see the ring finger) if you so choose! Here’s how:

Your supplies: To keep your design lasting the longest it can, we suggest using Gelish MINI – a soak-off gel system that uses the same quality products as the Gelish you get in the salon, but in cute teeny bottles and a small LED Lamp you can use at home. (Info on the starter kit here).

  • Step 1

    After completing your Gelish MINI nail prep, apply a thin coat of I’m Brighter Than You to create the first stripe. Cure in the Pro 45 LED Light for 45 seconds. Repeat for full coverage.

  • Step 2

    Using Garden Teal Party, create a second stripe and cure for 45 seconds. Repeat for desired coverage. Create additional stripes using Pop-arrazi Pose and Mali-Blue Me Away. Cure for 45 seconds and repeat.
