Create The Perfect Spring Arm Candy With Essie


By Dale Arden Chong

As everyone begins to transition into spring, shedding winter coats and opting for light jackets or flowing dresses, who couldn’t use a simple springtime manicure for those weekend trips with your best friends? Essie used its Spring 2017 collection to create a breezy nail art look that’s simple to do, but will definitely look like a work of art. 

Celebrity nail artist Rita Remark created her look Arm Candy just for you, mani mavens! 


Ridge Filling Primer

Excuse Me, Sur

Backseat Besties

Designated DJ

All the Wave

Good to Go Top Coat

Tools Used:

Dotting Tool

Striping Brush

Arm Candy by Rita Remark:

1. After a thin layer of Ridge Filling Primer, apply two coats of Excuse Me, Sur.

2. Using a striping brush, apply two horizontal lines of Backseat Besties across the nail at a slight angle.

3. Add a line of All the Wave crossing the first lines.

4.Add two lines of Designated DJ.

5. Create “beads” with Designated DJ using the dotting tool, hen seal with Good to Go Top Coat.

PRO TIP: Play with different angles and dot combinations to create a unique pattern on each nail.
