Do it on one finger as an accent, do it on ten: this quick little tutorial from Revlon has a few things going for it. 

  1. Shade of the year, people. Get those nails #trending.
  2. You only need a couple of colours and a striper. No striper? No worries – use an old liquid eyeliner brush. Smart, huh?
  3. It’s EASY. I don’t have time for really fiddly stuff much and all as I admire it on others, so easy impact is for me. This = easy impact.
  4. It’s geo. We’re into geo. Uhuh.

STEP 1: Lash on a coat of Revlon Quick Dry Base Coat, €9.15.

STEP 2: Next up, apply two coats of Nail Enamel in Enchanting, €9.15.

STEP 3: It gets a bit tricky. Using a nail striper (or you could try the tape method), paint on a triangle shape at the base of the nail using Nail Enamel in Charming, €9.15. Fill in the shape with the colour. 

STEP 4: Again using your striper (clean it first, mmkay?) dipped in Nail Enamel in Seductive, outline your wedge-shape. Guess what? You're almost done.

STEP 5: Made any mistakes? Now's the time to tidy them with an old concealer or paint brush dipped in remover.

STEP 6: And your final step is to paint a coat of Quick Dry Topcoat, €9.15, over each nail to seal 'em. In a hurry? Liquid Quick Dry, €9.15, speeds things up.
