Shopbop Beauty: Winter Nail Art

Nail_Art_0001.550

Nail art continues to be a huge beauty trend— the mani cam from this year’s Golden Globes coverage is proof enough. And while we seek inspiration from lots of places (ahem, Pinterest), at Shopbop HQ, we have to look no further than our own resident nail artist, Dokia, for a fresh winter look.

Says Dokia: “Even with the slow transition into spring, I am still obsessed with the reddish-purple hues from fall. My nails are slightly longer than usual, so I decided to go for a bold, oxblood on just the tips (a lot of dark color on a long nail can easily look vampy). I like to free hand, but if you’re nervous about a steady hand, you can use nail stickers, or even painter’s tape to get a clean line. Lastly, before and after my tips, I used a base and top coat to give them that perfect salon shine.”
