Revlon’s Color Closet: Nail Art

If you know me you know that I’m a bit challenged when it comes to my nails.  I keep them neat, pretty and simple but that’s about it.  While I appreciate creative nail art I unfortunately don’t have the skills for it.  Last week I   was sent an amazing selection of polishes from Revlon to test out  and I immediately got  inspired to give it a shot.  I knew right off the bat that I wanted a look that would be both easy to wear for night and day (I’m a mom so even mani’s have to be practical) but still be a little glam.  My nails are always kept at mid length so I didn’t want to go crazy with patterns and decided instead to do a French mani with a twist.  The first colors that immediately came to mind was the Iconic Gray, Urban (it looks more like a deep purple and it’s the perfect pop of color for fall) and sparkly Hearts of Gold.

Below are the steps to recreate my super easy look and some stylish outfits inspired by Revlon Iconic nail enamel.

1. Apply two thick coats of the Urban nail enamel (make sure to use a clear coat first).
2. I decided to apply the Revlon matte polish that I had left over from the summer.  One coat is all you need but make sure you wait until they’re perfectly dried.
3.  Next I used Revlon’s Nail Art Expressionist in Ulterior Motive to paint a thin coat across the tips of my nails.  I applied two coats so that the color stood out.  The brush on the nail art set is amazing and makes the process so easy!
4.  To give the mani a touch of glam I used Hearts of Gold.  One light swipe across the tips is all it needed.
So there you go: 4 steps using 4 polishes from Revlon to get one simple chic look.
Day & Night Looks:
Adding some florals and tweed to a daytime look will give this edgy enamel a feminine touch
Take your look and nails right into the night by simlpy swapping out the flats for sexy heels and instead florals try a sexy cami.

Revlon believes there is more than one way for women to be seen. Revlon’s heritage as a color authority and its suite of innovative products inspires women around the world to express themselves through beauty each and every day.
