ESSIE Spring Range numbered

1 – blanc; 2 – lapiz of luxury; 3 – play date; 4 – tart deco

The Tools: An oval acrylic brush, a bowl of nail polish remover & a small square of tin foil


  1. Start with a base coat & let it dry.
  2. Apply 2 coats of ESSIE ‘blanc’ & let it dry completely.
  3. Place a few drops of ‘lapiz of luxury’ on foil. Dip the brush into the bowl of remover then on drops. Lightly dab the brush on each nail to create small flower bouquets.
  4. Repeat with ‘play date’ making sure to dab over ‘lapiz of luxury’ to create the watercolour effect.
  5. Repeat step 3 using ‘tart deco’ to blend the colours.
  6. Seal the look with a top coat & your look is complete!ESSIE finger nails numbered



  • For a textured look, make sure to leave a little white between colours.
  • Saturating the brush in nail polish remover dilutes the colours.
