According to The Pinterest 100—an annual culmination of 100 hot trends to try—geometric nails are topping the trends chart. Think negative space, black and white, geometric patterns and tons of nail art.

Always on top of the latest trends, Essie recently unveiled an ombré nail design that's perfect for spring. Celebrity manicurist and Essie global lead educator, Rita Remark, created the nail look and shared the details with us so that you can recreate it yourself. 

  1. Start by applying First Base base coat, then polish a diagonal French tip with a striping brush using Pass-Port to Sail.
  2. Dip a small detail brush in Anchor Down and polish quick, diffused dashes from the side of the nail to the middle 
  3. Repeat step 2 with At the Helm but on the other side of the tip, moving upwards and to the middle of the nail and make sure to leave the middle.
  4. Finish with Speed.Setter top coat
