Step 1 – Apply a Base Coat

Boho Festival Nails Step 1

Begin with a clear base coat. This will ensure your nail colour applies evenly, maximise longevity, and will protect your natural nail bed.

Step 2 – Apply Nude Nail Polish

Next apply a boho-inspired colour to your nails. Going for a neutral hue works best here, like a pastel nude or a latte brown.  

Step 3 – Draw the First Chevron

Using a thin brush nail polish, create the first chevron by marking two diagonal lines. Going for a juxtaposing colour will create more of a striking finish, we recommend a crisp white.

Step 4 – Draw the Second Chevron

Above the first chevron, create another. Using the side of the thin brush works best here as it will ensure a super straight line. If you do not have a nail art polish to hand then you can use a lip brush with a white polish for an extra thin line.

Step 5 – Finish with Asymmetric Tips

Step 6 – Apply a clear Top Coat

Seal your boho chic talons with a glossy, clear top coat. This will prevent dreaded chips and will preserve the design for longer.
