We love all six of these runway-inspired shades because they are unique, and will transition easily from summer to fall. For this fan brush manicure tutorial we chose to highlight a few of our personal favorites: Celeste, Deco, and Mynt. These colors together have a bright, tropical feel that is classic enough to wear out or to the office.
- 3 nail polish colors of your choice (Celeste, Deco, & Mynt shown)
- Fan brush (available at beauty or supply stores)
- Nail lacquer remover
- Palette for mixing polish (nonporous surface you don't mind putting polish on)
1. Always start with clean, buffed, and filed nails. In order to ensure a smooth application, remove excess cuticles and apply your favorite base coat. We used butter LONDON’s Melt Away Cuticle Eliminator and Nail Foundation Flawless Basecoat.
2. Next, apply one even coat of Polish #1 (Celeste) to all ten nails. Because you are going to be designing on top of this color with your other two shades, you don’t want too much polish build-up. One coat is sufficient for a mani like this, especially when using opaque colors.
3. Let your nails dry for at least 15 minutes before doing any designing. We let our nails dry for an hour to ensure the first layer was set.
4. Now that your nails are dry, you can start designing with the fan brush tool. Dab out a generous amount of Polish #2 (Deco) and Polish #3 (Mynt) onto your palette. Staff Tip: After a little experimenting we found it was easier to apply one color at a time, but if you feel like mixing, go for it!
5. Make sure your fan brush has enough space between the bristles to create a feathered effect. We suggest getting it wet before using in order to separate the bristles. Carefully dip the center bristles into Polish #2 (Deco), making sure to only pick up polish on the tips of the bristles. Next, gently drag the brush across your nail from one side to the other. We did horizontal lines, but vertical looks great too!
6. Repeat this step with your Polish #3 (Mynt). This is when you will truly see the wispy design begin to appear! Continue dipping and dragging until you achieve your desired design. Staff Tip: It is handy to keep a dish of nail lacquer remover to cleanse the brush of polish before re-dipping to avoid buildup. We used Deborah Lippmann The Stripper Lavender Nail Lacquer Remover.
7. Once all three layers have dried, make sure to finish-off the nails with a glossy top coat. You want all that work to last as long as possible! We used butter LONDON’s Hardware PD Quick Topcoat to prevent chipping and protect our design.

Shop Clarisonic here.
All of us at b-glowing.com are die-hard Clarisonic addicts. Whether we are using the Mia, Plus, Mia2, or new Aria, we love how these skincare must-haves completely remove our makeup, smooth imperfections, and leave our skin glowing.
One of the tricks to getting the most out of your Clarisonic is finding the right brush head for your skin type or concern, and replacing it every 3 months. From Delicate to Deep Pore, there is a brush head out there for you, and b-glowing.com is here to help you find the POREfect fit!
What We Use:
"I received one of the Normal Brush Heads in a Gift With Purchase offer and loved it. I felt like it wasn’t too soft or too rough, and it made my skin feel completely clean without feeling like I was over exfoliating. I’ve stuck with the Normal Brush Head because I’ve found it works best for my combination/oily, yet somewhat sensitive, skin type." - Brand Assistant, Kayla
“I really like the Deep Pore Brush Head because I have oily/acne-prone skin, and this really gets in there and assures a clean slate - especially in areas where blackheads are common, like the nose and chin. Since switching from the Normal Brush Head to the Deep Pore, I’ve noticed a change for the better in my skin. I have far less breakouts and a more even skin tone." - Customer Service Director, Katelyn
“I use the Normal Brush Head because I feel like, even though my skin is sensitive, it doesn’t aggravate my skin and it gives me an extreme deep clean.” - Brand Manager, Erika
