French Manicures Got a Facelift and We’re Totally Here for it!

Is nail art totally passé? That’s up for debate. But if pop art and jeweled accents aren’t your thing then, you may be more of a nail minimalist.

Former Lucky editor and style guru, Eva Chen, is always setting and breaking the beauty mold when it comes to beauty. Her popular #EvaChenMani is 124 Instagram posts strong and it’s a gorgeous mix of minimal and classic manicures with jewels and shimmer for days when she’s feeling daring. Her most recent manicure, however takes the cake for minimal chic.

Staying within a monochromatic color scheme, select two shades of nail polish in a neutral color (one slightly sheerer than the other). Apply two coats of the opaque shade, painting the tips of your nails and the moons, allow time for the lacquer to dry in between coats. Once the polish is dry, apply two coats of sheer polish over top and follow it with a high shine top coat.
