Tortoise shell manicures are a work of art!
They're simply stunning & surprisingly ...not as hard to DIY as you'd think.
I'm going to show you how to create the design at home using just 3 polishes!
We're going to start with a lighter
shade in the orange or
Be sure it has a jelly finish.
This is "Michelangelo" by Light's Lacquer
Carefully paint one coat onto your nail. Get as close to the edges as possible
touching the skin.
While the nail is still wet, grab a red/brick shade! Also with a jelly finish.
This is "Raphael " by Light's Lacquer
Paint some red spots around the nail. Working while the 1st coat is wet allows the polish to bleed together.
Last, grab a brown polish. Again ...with a jelly finish!
This is "Donatello" from Light's Lacquer
Add some brown spots on top of the red ones! Again, work with wet layers so the colors blend nicely.
REPEAT all three steps for a really rich, deep manicure!
Last, finish with a generous coat of your favorite topcoat!
And that is IT! Are you surprised by how easy that was to do?
Light's Lacquer makes a complete Tortoise Manicure Set, but you don't need it! Just work with similar polishes you already have!
