Every year when festival fever hits, out goes the monochrome wardrobe and in comes the flower power aesthetic. Follow our hippie chic boho nails tutorial to channel the trend from your talons to your daisy crown.
What Will I Need to Achieve Boho Festival Nails?
- Base coat
- Nude nail polish
- Thin brush nail polish to draw the white lines
- Top coat
Step 1 – Apply a Base Coat
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
Finish the design with a couple of asymmetric straight lines.
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.
