Your cut-off shorts are on, the BBQ grill is waiting…there’s just one thing missing: a festive Memorial Day manicure, natch. This playful manicure from nail guru Jin Soon Choi features a new take on stripes and our country’s most patriotic colors—keep scrolling to see the step-by-steps!
2. Apply a creamy off-white nail polish, like JINsoon’s Nail Lacquer ($18) in Doux.
3. Using a striping brush, create slight waves with JINsoon’s Cool Blue ($18), a bright electric blue, diagonally from the left to the right side of the nail. Vary the thickness so one side is thicker than the other. You can do this by slightly applying more pressure with the brush as you draw the line.
4. Using JINsoon Nail Lacquer ($18) in Kookie White, mimic the line from Step 3 right below it.
5. Repeat Step 4 using JINsoon Nail Lacquer ($18) in Coquette, a bright, cherry shade.
