My Forbidden Love

We shared pictures of Nicole Richie’s nail art done by Kimmie Kyees for Monday’s Met Gala. Now you too can create this Gelish manicure befitting the punk theme. Kyees chose Gelish’s My Forbidden Love as the base and Orly Luxe for the moons to create an “opulent edge.”  “Nicole had so many gorgeous accessories on, I wanted to make sure her manicure stood out,” adds Kyees. Here’s how to recreate the look:

·        > Gently push back the cuticle and shape the nail.

·        > Lightly buff the surface of the nail plate.

·        > Cleanse the nail with a lint free wipe and Gelish Nail Surface Cleanse to remove any dust and excess moisture.

> Apply a thin coat of Gelish pH Bond and cap the free edge.

> Apply a thin coat of Gelish Foundation and cap the free edge. Cure in Gelish 18G LED for five seconds.

> Apply a thin coat of Gelish My Forbidden Love and cap the free edge. Cure in the Gelish 18G LED for 30 seconds.

> Apply a second coat of Gelish My Forbidden Love and cap the free edge. Cure in the Gelish 18G LED for 30 seconds.

> Using Gelish Allure and a clean nail art brush, create a heart-shaped design at the base of the nail near the cuticle area. Cure in the Gelish 18G LED for 30 seconds.

> Apply a second coat of Gelish Allure to the area of the design. Cure in Gelish 18G LED for 30 seconds.

> Apply a thin coat of Gelish Top It Off and cap the free edge. Cure in the Gelish 18G LED for 30 seconds.

> Remove tacky residue with Gelish Nail Surface Cleanse and a lint-free wipe.

> Massage Gelish Nourish Cuticle Oil into skin surrounding nail plate.
