DIY Trend: Bright Stripes

March 2017

From New York to Paris, our Global Color Ambassador Madeline Poole’s job is to spot the latest fashion trends and translate them to your nails. This season, she recommends Bright Stripes, a rainbow-bright mani with big impact.

When explaining her inspiration for Bright Stripes, Madeline reported that “tons of bright colors revived the 80’s this spring 2017 season. There was no shortage of saturation”. Marc Jacobs, Fendi and Opening Ceremony all sent a rainbow to the runway, so Madeline followed suit with a manicure to match.

Want to get the look yourself? Our hack for Madeline’s Bright Stripes nail art is simple to achieve at home with no special tools required, only a standard toothpick. Featuring Miracle Gel in Tipsy Gipsy and Fish-Teal Braid, this version of bright stripes is a riot of color that will brighten up any outfit. Just add Miracle Gel Top Coat for up to 14 days of color and shine.

  • Step 2

    Use a toothpick to paint one fine stripe on each nail with Miracle Gel in Fish-Teal Braid and allow to dry.
