From left: Essie nail polish in Saltwater Happy, Peach Side Babe and Pret-A-Surfer, $10, essie.ca.
1. Apply base coat and two coats of the colour of your choice. We used Essie’s Saltwater Happy. Let dry.
2. With your second colour (we used Peach Side Babe), remove almost all of the polish from the brush. Stroke it across the nail from all directions, brushing inwards from the cuticle. Let dry.
3. Repeat with your third colour (we used Pret-A-Surfer). Rotate the brush as necessary to add more polish.
4. If you feel that your second colour has been covered up too much, simply apply a few more brush strokes. Finish with top coat.
