Nail It: The NSLD Manicure
October 19, 2014

With National Shoe Lover Day right around the corner, we thought this was the perfect time to get those nails in tip-top shape for the party. And you know we’ve found the perfect shades to represent all that this amazing day has to offer. Our signature colors, Worthy of a Toast and Uptown Lady by Anise are already causing quite the stir around our office. People LOVE them. You can paint on a couple coats and call it a day or do somethin’ a little more festive like we did.

Here’s the step-by-step on how to get these gorgeous looks:

What you’ll need: Anise nail polish in colors Worthy of a Toast and Uptown Lady, top coat, cotton balls, nail polish remover, emery board, and cuticle pusher. For intermediate and advanced tutorials: adhesive nail jewels, red nail pen.

Tutorial 1: Easy/Beginner

Clean nails thoroughly with cotton balls and nail polish remover. Polish all of your nails, excluding the ring finger, with Uptown Lady. Apply the glitter polish (Worthy of a Toast) to your ring fingers. Finish with a top coat for maximum sparkle and shine!

Tutorial 2: Medium/Intermediate

Lay out your nail charms of choice. Apply two coats of Uptown Lady. Allow nails to dry and add a clear top coat. While the top coat is still wet, use tweezers or a cuticle pusher dipped in a bit of clear polish to apply the charms. Once dry, apply one last top coat to seal your bling.

Tutorial 3: Hard/Expert

Apply two coats of Worthy of a Toast and allow nails to fully dry. Grab a red nail art pen and carefully draw a heart on each nail. Allow to dry then seal with a top coat.
