Just in time for chillier weather and shorter days, Essie shows us how to create two trendy fall nail looks using their northern-lights inspired 2018 winter collection.

Celebrity manicurist Jini Lim walks us through these cozy step-by-step designs.

Why You So Plaid

Step 1:

Apply a thin layer of here to stay base coat before applying just the way you arctic on each nail.

 

Step 2:

Use a striping tool and million mile hues to paint two thin lines across the center of the nail in the shape of a cross.

 

Step 3:

Use a thin brush tool and sights on nightlights to paint two thin lines in an “L” shape on the left side of the nail.

 

Step 4:

Use hear me aurora to fill in the right sidewall and tip of the nail. Then, finish with speed.setter top coat for a preppy, plaid look.

 

 

 

Come and See the Northern Lights
