Rihanna had a long, milky French manicure when sitting front row at the BET Awards. Celebrity manicurist Kimmie Kyees created the singer’s nails for the night using Red Carpet Manicure (which you can score for yourself at Ulta). Here’s how:
Step 1: Prep nails: file, buff, and push back the cuticle.
Step 2: Apply Red Carpet Manicure Clingy Base Coat. Start by painting a stripe down the center of the nail, then two more stripes on either side. Fill in the entire nail using smooth, even strokes. Allow to dry.
Step 3: Next, I lightly brushed Red Carpet Manicure Candid Moment onto the tips of the nail (think of the shape of a happy face) or you can use nail guides (which are included in the Red Carpet Manicure French Manicure Kit.)
Step 4: Lastly, seal in the look with Red Carpet Manicure Shine On Top Coat!
