How to create Bow Nails

BEAUTYKim & Chloe

Bow nails are perfect for the holidays in any color combo. We wanted a tux-inspired theme with a dark grey and pink, with "diamond" bows. 3d nails

We were inspired  by Zooey Deschanel's bow nails -- how much more adorable can she possibly get?

The colors are OPI's Nein Nein Nein Ok Fine and Essie's Guchi Muchi Puchi. The bow is from Sally's Beauty Supply. We simply placed the bow on wet nail polish and then used nail polish over the bow to hold it in place. A few days in and you can see that the bow is holding up better than the nail polish! Plus, we'll remove the nail polish and be able to re-use the bows over and over. Try this in red and silver, dark green and gold and you've got your holiday manicure in 3D.

Day 3 of our manicure and our polish is chipping, as usual, but our bow is still in place. 3D manicures are so easy and make an impact! Enjoy.
