Sexy Stripes @ Veda
Tie-dye pieces from VEDA’s collection inspired these muted mauve and olive nails that make you want to take a second look. The black stripe creates an elongated look and the background colors are perfect for the fall’s muted colors trend.
What You’ll Need: Butter LONDON’s “Union Jack Black Nail Lacquer“, “Toff Nail Lacquer” or “Sloane Ranger Nail Lacquer“, and “Knackered” on ($14 each at butterlondon.com).
What You’ll Do:
1. Choose a base coat of a mauve or olive shade. Don’t alternate between the two, but make sure there’s an even mix of each color on your nails.
2. Paint a stripe of black down the middle of each nail. Be careful not to let the stripe touch your nail bed.
3. Capture the shiny sheen by applying a top coat of lacquer.
