#ManicureMonday: The Best Nail Art of the Week
Stunning nail art ideas -- from easy DIY to crazy design ideas -- one week at a time
With all the love for the Golden state, it should come as no surprise that Rebecca Minkoff (a California native) based her 2017 Spring Collection on the carefree vibe of a California road trip down the coast. Besides her drop-dead gorgeous fashion, our eyes were immediately drawn to the models' pink rainbow nails -- which went perfectly with the bohemian florals and airy silhouettes of her collection.
To create the California nails, Minkoff teamed up with Essie lead manicurist, Michelle Saunders, to create a nail design which features "warm and inviting hues that create the perfect mood for a springtime filled with fashionable adventures." To get the rainbow nails at home, first apply the Essie First Base Base Coat, followed by Essie Nail Polish in Mademoiselle. Then, paint four thin arches using a striping brush to create the monochromatic rainbow design in shades, Designated DJ, B'aha Moment, Excuse Me Sur and Backseat Besties. These colors can slightly overlap each other. Lock your California nails in place with the Essie Gel Setter Top Coat, and hit the open road.
