Insta Trend: Nail Contouring
Just when you’ve mastered the cheekbone contour, beauty gurus come up with yet another technique to try. But this time, it doesn’t require a super fancy brush to get the job done. Here's the skinny on nail contouring– the latest nail art trend and Insta craze.
To create a longer-looking nail, all it takes is applying a clear base coat or a lighter-colored coat of polish onto your nail, then sweeping a deeper color down the middle. Similar to face contouring, the tiny sliver of lighter polish tricks the eye into thinking nails are longer.
If you're looking to re-create the trend yourself, we're obsessed with these two fall nail colors by Formula X.
Applying the faded taupe color of 'Intrigue' as a base coat, followed by a sleek, straight line of the deep maroon shade of 'Ignite' will look give the false illusion of longer-looking nails, plus an ultra- glossy finish.
