Sam Rivenbank demonstrates how to do Earth Day nail art.


1. Apply base coat and two coats of blue.


2. Trace a circle (the globe) in the center of the nail. For a more accurate circle, you can make four small dots, and then connect the dots using a black striper.


3. With a green striper, paint continents inside the circle. Using a royal blue striper, fill in the spaces around the continents to form the oceans.


4. With the same royal blue striper, write the word “Love,” curving it above the globe. Write the word “Her” underneath the globe. Allow to dry, and apply a top coat.
