I couldn’t resist this pattern! Everyone backstage was commenting on the swan pattern. There was a vintage upholstery feeling to a lot of the textures and materials. Of course this looks like a difficult nail to recreate but by spreading out the pattern over the fingers it’s more of an abstract brushy pattern.


I used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in “Night Watch” and “Kook A Mango”, Miracle Gel in “Grey Matters” and Xtreme Wear in “White On”.


Step One – Paint the nails with two coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure “Night Watch”


Step Two – Use a striping brush to paint the water reflection in Sally Hansen Miracle Gel “Grey Matters” use a stroking motion.


Step three – Paint swan shapes in Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear “White On” using a striping brush.


Step four – Apply a small triangle of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure “Kook A Mango” for the bill of the swan.
