This design is fairly simple, but looks effortlessly amazing.  I went simple with this design to show how you can easily punch up a simple mani.

In this mani there are two effects going on; the first being the textured polish…I could've totally stopped here and had a very interesting mani.  But that just wouldn't be me! The second effect is adding the Mylar film from +BornPretty Store Nail Art  to a few nails, which goes along with the "sea glass" look of the +Zoya Nail Polish I chose to use in this mani.

Here's what I used:

  1. Base coat: Duri Rejuvicote and +Julep Maven Oxygen Smoothing base coat
  2. Base color 1: Ness by Zoya (cream)
  3. Accent nail color: Cece by Zoya (pixiedust textured polish)
  4. Top Coat 1: Duri Miracote
  5. Mylar film
  6. Scissors to cut the mylar film
  7. Top coat 2: I applied 2 coats of the Duri Miracote, but suggest a thicker top coat
Here's how to achieve this look:

  1. Prep your nails with alcohol or the Zoya Remove+ to remove any oils
  2. Cut the mylar film into the shapes and sizes that you want.  Make sure you have good scissors and do this before painting nails, to avoid any dents! 
  3. Apply base coat(s)
  4. Apply base and accent colors (play around with the placement of your accent color to mix it up even more)
  5. You don't have to apply top coat, but I like to whenever I am doing nail art
  6. Allow nails to dry completely
  7. Place mylar film on nails, and smooth over to remove any bubbles or ripples
    1. No need to apply over wet top coat...the film adheres really well to the surface.  And not using wet top coat allows you to easily re-position the film without messing up the polish.
  8. Finally add top coat (I recommend a thicker top coat for a smooth surface)
Here's the finished look!
