Fossilized Fashion: Easy How-To

Fossilized Fashion How To
by @PolishedJess

Fashion from the past always comes back in style, and we're in love with this adorable look by PolishedJess using this month's Mani x Me Box. Dinosaurs are breaking into the 80's, rocking funky neon colors and abstract shapes that create a fun and flawless look. We're grabbing our monthly boxes and stealing this perfect look, and you can too.

Here’s how to create this look…
  1. Apply a cuticle protector to make clean up easier. Don’t have one? Our Latex-Free Cuticle Tape is a great and easy option.

  1. Grab plate MXM004 and Ducky from your Mani x Me box. Apply the polish to the selected design. Use your scraper to spread the polish, then use your stamper to pick up the image.

  1. Grab a thin detailing brush to fill in your design. Using polishes Littlefoot and Monarch Dream, fill in the design on your stamper. 

4.  Apply the design by pressing your stamper firmly to your nail with an up and down, or rolling method. Practice different methods to see what works best for you.

5.   Apply a smudge-free top coat to seal in your design. Don’t have one?
We’ve got you covered.

That's it! This design is as easy as it is adorable, and we can't wait to rock it. If you're already a Mani x Me monthly club subscriber, grab your box and get stamping! Share your new look with us on social using #manixmebox.
