https://youtu.be/k1ZBxPkkmwY Essie nail polishes have the cutest and creative names for their nail colours! Speaking of cute names. The colours I received were wicked (the darker colour), demure vix (the lighter one), along with an essie base and top coat. Using a base and top coat really makes a difference in terms of how long the manicure lasts. Much longer than doing the essie nail colour on its own. STEP 1: Apply essie base coat DRY STEP 2: Apply tape to half your nail. Vertical or horizontally. STEP 3: Apply nail polish to non taped side. STEP 4: Apply second colour. STEP 5: Add essie drying drops. Here’s the how to video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQgYBRwhvmI Disclaimer: I received these products complimentary for testing purposes.
