How To: Red Chevron Manicure / Manicura Cheurón Roja

9:42 PM

Hey Bellas!

After a taking a hiatus that was a bit too long, I'm so happy to say that I'M BACK! I took a little break from blogging because I was in the process of transferring into a new school (Go Rutgers!) and as a college student I was a little swamped. I will be getting back onto a regular blogging schedule, so I haven't quit blogging or anything.

I was scrolling through my Instagram the other day and saw a beautiful red manicure that Rihanna posted.

¡Hola Bellas!

¡Después de tomar un descanso, estoy contenta de anunciar que regrese! Tomé un descanso de bloguear porque estuve en el proceso de cambiar de universidades (¡vamos Rutgers!) entonces estuve un poco ocupada. Voy a establecer un horario regular de bloguear.

Un día estaba revisando Instagram y me di cuenta de una foto que subió Rihanna de su manicura.

I couldn't help myself and had to try to recreate the look. It's a super chic and simple mani for the fall that can be done easily. Even though my nails aren't as long as Rihanna's, I think people with small nailbeds can pull it off too!

No pude resistir de intentar a recrear el look. Es perfecto para el otoño y se puede hacer facilmente.




How to get the look:

1) For the base, start by painting on two coats of a nude polish. I used Sally Hansen's "Cafe Au Laite".

2) Next, paint on one freehand stroke of red nail polish starting from the left side of the nail tip. I used Zoya nail polish in "Rehka". Paint this stroke downward direction and let it curve slightly to create a heart shape. Repeat on the right side.

3) Let dry and seal with a clear top coat.

Go on, give it a try and let me know what you think!

 Como conseguir el "look":

 1) Para la basepintar dos capas de un esmalte nude. Yo use la marca de Sally Hansen en "Cafe Au Laite".

2) Próximo, pinta un trazo a mano alzada de esmalte rojo a partir de la parte izquierda de la punta de la uña. Yo use la marca Zoya en "Rehka". Pinta esto en una dirección hacia abajo y dejar que se curva ligeramente para crear una forma de corazón. Repita en el lado derecho.

3) Dejar secar y sellar con una capa clara.

¡Anda, trata de hacerlo y dejame saber que piensas!



Besitos,
