Rita Remark Inspired Double Striped Nail Art Tutorial

So, it's no secret that we have been the ultimate Essie fangirls recently. We follow everything Essie and that includes Canada's lead nail artist for essie, Rita Remark. When we saw Rita posted a sneak peek (see below) of some nails she created for a Roots Canada Lookbook, we had to try them out! We also have just received samples of the Essie Neon Collection, set for release May 1st, and couldn't wait to get them on our nails! We used Saturday Disco Fever (Vivid Coral) and Boom Boom Room (Bright Pink) to complete this mani. We also used Essie's Licorice (Black) and Blanc (White). For tools, all you need for this mani is the polishes and a slightly thinner nail art brush!

Anyways, we created the below pictorial to reference if you wanted to recreate this mani! You can really use any colours, but we decided to go bright for Spring! 

We started with two coats of Essie's Blanc, which is an ultra creamy white polish. We then used a nail art brush to paint stripes starting from the top V to the bottom, trying to keep even space between each line. Since you will be covering the middle of the nail, you don't have to continue all the way to the centre! We then used Essie's Boom Boom Room (a super bright true pink) to create a stripe down the middle of the nail using the polish brush. To get the stripe to your desired thickness you may need to use more than one swipe! We also used about two coats here to attempt to fully cover the black and white. Then we used Essie's Saturday Disco Fever (the most neon-y coral we've ever seen…) to paint the stripe down the centre of the nail.

The beauty of these nails is in that if they're imperfect, nobody will know. The OCD in us loves it! Some of our lines aren't straight but there is so much going on that you just can't tell! Check out Rita Remark on Instagram and Twitter, and let us know what you think of these nails!
