Essie Nail Art Tutorial: ‘Stroke of Genius’

Get the look of this Mani-Monday inspiration with Essie’s “Stroke of Genius” nail art using only two  shades from Essie’s nail color collection.

To rock out in this metallic design you’ll need a base coat, top coat, and Essie’s “Girly Grunge” and “Dressed to the Nineties” nail colors from the Essie Fall 2017 collection. And you’ll need a stroking or fine details brush for application.

Begin with a coat of Essie’s First Base base coat. Then, using the stroking brush add strokes of “Girly Grunge” across the tip of each nail. Then repeat similar strokes with “Dressed to the Nineties,” and finish with a few more strokes of “Girly Grunge.” Finally, seal your “Stroke of Genius” nail art with a coat of Essie’s Gel Setter top coat, and voila!
