On-Trend: Holographic Triangle Nail Art!

 Essie in Demure Vixen

 Kiko Digital Nail Lacquer in 31

Essie in Licorice

Hey Beauty Lovers! One of the nail trends this year will be the triangle nail art and although it looks quite elaborate it actually is pretty easy to create. You will need two nailpolish shades of your choice, one glitter overcoat, a fine artists brush, and adhesive tape. To create this look I applied two coats of Essie Demure Vixen as a base colour, it's a very pretty nude taupy pink with a purple sheen. Then with a fine artists brush I painted two lines to make a V shape in the middle of the nail, using Kiko Digital Nail Lacquer in 31, which is a pink holographic glitter. It's a very pretty fine glitter overcoat with a clear base, I applied two coats. 

Then it is important to let the nailpolish dry completely before you do the next step. To finish the look I applied two strips of adhesive tape over the holographic V [this will give it that sharp and crisp edge], and then I painted over with one coat of Essie Licorice, which is the most opaque cream black. After about a minute while the nailpolish is still wet carefully lift the adhesive tape and pull away slowly. Leave the black to dry for a few more minutes and then finish off with a glossy topcoat, this will make the holographic glitter sparkle and keep your nails super shiny. The thumb accent is optional, but basically it's a similar concept.
