According to eco-chic nail stylist Debbie Leavitt, the look for manis this spring is all about layering and depth. If you’ve got a fashion magazine (or five — no judgement) within reach, chances are Debbie’s hands are behind the manicures on the cover page and featured story. She doesn’t just know what the trends are, she basically starts them!
And, I’m feeling very lucky because Debbie created three exclusive inspirations for spring, just for us. She also included step-by-step instructions so we can recreate them at home. It’s a perfect weekend project!
A Few Tips Before You Begin
Tip 1: Wait for polish to dry between steps. It makes it easier to create clean lines.
Tip 2: Dusty mauves are a big color this season. Pop it up with a contrasting bright and bold color like hot pink or orange!
Tip 3: To create “monogram” letters like the “J” and “H,” use a nail dotter. (You can use a toothpick if you don’t have a nail dotter.) The easiest way to use either is to lightly touch the tip of the pen or pick into the edge of the polish. The more polish on the tool, the harder it is to make precise dots.
