The individual cartoon points on each nail have a slight pastel tone, perfect for minimalists. Plus, with the absolute basics, no one will know when it will finally chip in!
Start with a base, then let dry thoroughly and move to the tail. Grab two or three complementary shadows and start adding large diagonal stripes to each nail to create a braid effect – leaving some solid nails to break up the pattern. Stone cautions against moving too fast: “Because of the multiple buffs, trying to polish it all at once can get cloudy and slow.” As we all know, waiting is the hardest part, but we promise it’s worth it. Put on a coat to seal your work, and you’re done! Congratulations, you’re Ariel now.
