VIDEO: Nail Art Hacks with Trophy Wife

I don't know if it's just me, but I find nail art videos oddly satisfying. Maybe it's because the artists usually use tiny little brushes with such precision, or always have some secret technique they use to create a specific effect.

So, I couldn't think of a better time to ask Chelsea from Trophy Wife Nail Art to join us and share three easy-to-replicate nail art looks, using tools you probably already have at home.

You can watch the video below, or keep scrolling to find out which tools and polishes Chelsea used for each look.

Look 1: Pink Ombre

Ahhh, the perfect fade - and she makes it look so easy! The essie Gel Couture polishes Chelsea uses to create this look last up to 12 days and don't require a base coat. All you'll need to create this pretty in pink manicure are the below tools and polishes:

Look 2: Nude Abstract

This is the perfect look to play around with when you're in a bit of a artsy mood (or just can't decide on one colour). You can go completely rogue with your shapes here, using a light touch to create random shapes. To get create this look, you'll need the below tools and polishes:

Look 3: Negative Space + Geometric Tips

A nail art look that also cares for your nails underneath? Yes, please! Treat, Love & Color reduces nail peeling and breakage from just 1 week of wear (and you can layer it under any polish to keep those claws classy). To replicate this geometric look, you'll need the below:

Chelsea's Top Nail Art Tips:

  • Always cleanse the nail with nail polish remover to clean off dust and debris before applying polish

  • Use a cuticle oil to nourish the surrounding skin & promote health of the nail matrix for longer, stronger nails

  • Use a base coat and top coat (always!) to extend the longevity & quality of your manicure
