A Spring Manicure With Jin Soon

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Every year, I patiently wait out the bitter NYC winter for the beautiful sights of spring. From blocks lined with blossoming cherry blossom trees to city parks filled with blooming tulips, New York City just stuns in the spring. 

Tulips (and peonies!) happen to be my absolute FAVORITE flower. From plums to red and every pink peach tone in between, this elegant flower has held a special place in my heart since the elementary years. This season, Jin Soon, the ultimate nail guru and manicure maven, has created an incredibly charming manicure exclusively inspired by this beautiful flower. 

This ultra-sweet manicure brings together two of my favorite colors in this simple yet chic manicure. To learn how you can recreate this floral-inspired manicure yourself, here's how: 

Prep: Always start with clean, polish-free nails. Once free of polish, files nails to a softened, natural squared shape. 

Polish: Begin by coating nails in a single application of JINsoon Power Coat. Once dried, apply JINsoon Dolly Pink to nails. 

Design: Make sure nails are dry before applying the next layer of color to avoid smudging. Take a thin nail brush and draw two thin lines 3/4 of the way up from the cuticle using JINsoon Cherry Berry. Next, neatly curve lines to each side of the nail. The tulip petals should mirror one another. Once lined, fill the area with Cherry. 

Finish: Seal the manicure with a single coat of JINsoon Top Gloss. This ultra-glossy top coat not only gives impeccable shine but offers lasting, chip-resistant results.
