Essie Sweet Treat:

  • Start with two coats of a white polish, such as Essie’s Sweet Souffle.
  • Create two semi-circles, slightly separated, using Essie Blue-La-La to create a macaron-like shape.
  • Repeat using Essie polish in S’il Vous Play and Baguette Me Not for a complete macaron nail art look.

Londontown Fishnet: 

  • Apply Nail Hardener base coat.
  • Apply nude polish like Londontown Lakur The Full Monty.
  • Apply diagonal stripes with black polish, like Londontown Lakur Chim Cher-ee, using a thin brush.
  • Apply diagonal stripes with black polish in the opposite direction over the initial stripes.
  • Apply Gel Genius topcoat.

OPI Set in the West:

  • Apply two coats of Sweet Carmel Sunday, and let it dry.
  • Use Excuse Me Big Sur to draw an oval around the nail, leaving an outline of the base shade.
