FOR THIS LOOK
You need a base coat, your favorite L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Polish (shown: Red Tote, a deep red), and Colour Riche nail lingerie (shown: Bling Addict). The nail lingerie is a thin applique that slips over your manicure, available in a variety of sheer metallic patterns that echo the effect of fishnet stockings.
STEP 1: PREP NAILS
First, clean your nails twice with nail polish remover to eradicate all residue. Then, shape your nails using L'Oréal Paris Consulting Nail Expert Tom Bachik's fantastic filing technique). Next, trim cuticles and brush on a thin layer of base coat.
STEP 2: ADD POLISH
Always apply polish by starting at the sides of the nails. Try to cover the nail in three strokes, two at the sides, one in the middle; two thick coats are ideal. Let the polish dry thoroughly (at least 20 minutes) before applying your nail lingerie.
STEP 3: NAILING NAIL LINGERIE
The nail lingerie look is easy to create at home. It's important to size each piece one finger at a time. Start by placing the lingerie at the cuticle and gently press down from side to side out to the edge of the nail. Bend the excess over the free edge of the nail once applied, then use a nail file to remove the excess from the edge.
