How to wear a baby boomer manicure?
To highlight this gradient, it will of course be preferable to make a baby boomer on rather long nails, even very long, natural or with capsules to precisely gain in length.
All nail shapes can be chosen: an oval and even almond shape to further enhance a vintage look, a square or rounded square shape for a more modern effect, a ballerina shape to emphasize originality!
How to do a baby boomer manicure?
- Clean your nails and remove any traces of varnish with a nail polish remover.
- Apply emollient cream or cuticle oil to soften cuticles, then push back with a wooden stick.
- File your nails if necessary then smooth them with a polishing block.
- Use a small brush to rid the nails of cream and residue.
- Apply a base coat to protect the nail.
- Apply a layer of pale pink varnish or nude varnish up to the limit of the free edge of the nail.
- Use a small sponge on which you will have put a little pale pink or nude varnish, and just below, a little white varnish.
- Lightly pat the top of the nail with this sponge, making sure the pink goes over the pink, and the white goes up the nail.
- Repeat this step a second time for each nail.
- Let it dry then apply a shiny top coat to fix your baby boomer in place.
- Remove the varnish that will have exceeded on the skin using a correction pen.
