5 Simple Nail Art Manicures with NYC New York Color City Samba collection

press sample*Phew*! That’s a mouthful, isn’t it? Good morning, you wonderful readers. As the title of this post states, I have 5 simple nail art manicures that I created with the NYC New York Color City Samba collection (reviewed here). Let’s get right to it!

First up is a simple gradient with NYC New York Color Sweet Melon and Tropicoral. I first painted my nails with Sweet Melon, let dry, then painted a small, porous, flat sponge with Sweet Melon and Tropicoral and applied it on my nails.

Next is diagonal stripes with NYC New York Color Tropicoral and Jacaranda Flower. Again, I started off with Tropicoral on all my nails. I waited for that to thoroughly dry before applying cut up chevron strips from Nail Vinyls to each nail. Then I applied a thick coat of Jacaranda Flower and quickly pulled off the strips.

NYC New York Color Jacaranda Flower and Amazon Green are next! I started off with Jacaranda Flower on all my nails. Then using the straw technique (tutorial here), I applied Amazon Green. I did not use top coat for this manicure.

Next is NYC New York Color Amazon Green and Palm on the Beach. Amazon Green is the base color, and I used the saran wrap technique to apply Palm on the Beach.

Lastly is a dotticure with NYC New York Color Palm on the Beach and Sweet Melon. The base is Palm on the Beach, and I’ve used a toothpick dipped in Sweet Melon to create the misshapen dots.
