Pink nails! It’s not often you can see me wearing pink. I love the colour but I find that most pink polishes don’t suit my skin tone. That’s why when developing colour palette for my upcoming nail polish collection I’ve decided to include pink. My aim was create the perfect sophisticated pink shade that would flatter any skin tone and would look beautiful on both young and mature skin/hands. After much research, mixing and comparing dozens of pink polishes (I have quite a few in my stash) I came up with the perfect shade of pink – Bikinis & Martinis, we called it.

By the way, don’t be confused by the summer-esque name. This cool pink polish is totally suitable for any season! If paired with black or dark blue, Bikinis & Martinis can be easily incorporated into a Winter manicure, or with grey or dark brown for the perfect Fall nail design. This chic pink is so multi-tasking and of course, the formula is flawless. It’s very pigmented, creamy, chip resistant and perfect for any kind of nail art… Ok, enough about the polish! Obviously, I’m proud of this one ;)

  1. Paint all nails white and wait until nail polish is dry.
  2. Attach triangle details from Boho Nail Stickers sheet on all nails as pictured. Trim the edges of the triangles to fit your nail bed shape precisely.
  3. Use mid length striping nail brush to paint chevron outlines with pink nail polish and then with a nail polish brush fill in the areas to the tip of the nail.
  4. Finish off with 1-2 layers of a quick dry top coat.
