Party tips Disco ball in­spi­ra­tion

We gave man­i­curist Made­line Poole a mis­sion: nail art with more spirit than a disco ball.

Glamour (South Africa) - - Glamour 2017 April - Now al­ter­nate be­tween three ac­cent shades

1Con­sider your out­fit for the evening, then co­or­di­nate your nails to it “You can match your nails to your shoes, pants, any­thing,” says Made­line Poole, global colour am­bas­sador for Sally Hansen. She played off the jew­el­toned pal­ette of a Roger Vivier clutch (far right) to cre­ate this four-colour de­sign. Ready? Start by paint­ing on two coats of your dark­est colour (we adore navy).

2Once the base colour is dry, use a strip­ing brush (the kind with the long, skinny bris­tles) to paint your de­sign Made­line was in­spired by hound­stooth – but to us, the pat­tern looks more like de­con­structed stars. To cre­ate geo­met­ric shapes like these, “make a se­ries of dots on each nail and then con­nect them,” says Made­line.

3Made­line chose ma­genta, gold and teal. Which­ever shade goes to the top of the nail should be wrapped all the way around the tip to pre­vent chips. “This is called cap­ping the free edge,” says Made­line.

4Dip the strip­ing brush into the navy shade and use it to sharpen the edges of each shape “You can also cover up any mis­takes,” says Made­line. Give it all at least five min­utes to dry and then paint a top coat over your nails.
