I can’t remember exactly how I came across this video from essie; it may have been in an email or I may have just been browsing essie’s website. But either way, I could NOT get the look out of my head. I had to recreate it.
This criss cross nail art (as essie is calling it) is super easy to recreate. I started with Urban Jungle as my base. Then using a brush from my eBay nail art set I added the lines creating 2 X’s. Fall In Line is opaque enough that I only had to touch up the lines in a few places.
I was, quite honestly, obsessed with this manicure. It’s so chic and season appropriate!
I wore this to the annual Mallard Creek Barbecue (a big event here in Charlotte) and I got so many compliments on my nails. One lady even asked me where I get my nails done (I told her my house!).
If you haven’t picked up Urban Jungle and Fall In Line yet I highly recommend you add them to your collection. Urban Jungle is available on beauty.com as well as Amazon. Fall In Line can be found on Amazon.
There are a couple more swatches under the jump!
