NYFW Nails: Gypsy Wheel Nail Art at Sophie Theallet

Sophie Theallet’s Fall/Winter 2015 collection was filled with glamorous prints and textured fabrics heavily influenced by the gypsy culture. Paying homage to the inspiration, Julie Kandalec for essie created symbolic gypsy wheel nail art using shades bahama mama and big spender.

Get the Look:
1. Apply first base base coat to clean, filed nails.

2. Next, apply two coats of big spender.

Nail Art Steps (for thumbs and one nail on each hand):
3. Once dry, dip a striping brush in bahama mama and draw two thin arcs at the base of the nail.

4. Then, dip a striping brush in bahama mama and fan out five equally straight lines in the smaller arc, starting with a vertical line down the middle.

5. To finalize the nail art, dip a dotting tool in bahama mama and add five equally spaced dots to the outer arc.

6. Finish with one coat of good to go top coat on all nails.

*For the darker nail look, switch the colors and use bahama mama as the base, and big spender for the nail design.
