seven rainbow colors splashed across each nail for a playful, artistic result.

essie x Jonathan Van Ness

step 1: to begin, after manicuring apply smooth-e base coat to prime each nail.

step 2: as per Jonathan’s signature manicure style, a few nails were polished with color as opposed to his whole hand. for this look, the shades 'butler please,' 'in the cab-ana,' 'come here!,' 'chillato,' 'play date,' 'geranium,' and 'tart deco' were used to create abstract rainbow nail art.

step 3: to recreate, apply each shade one at a time, using the polish brush to blend, creating a marble effect as if all the colors are melting into one another. repeat on desired number of nails.

step 4: once the design is complete, top each nail with gel.setter top coat for a high-shine finish.
