What better way to enjoy your summer stay-cation, than with a cool printed mani! If you’ve never used nail wraps before, just follow this easy nail wrap tutorial, and you’ll be relaxing poolside before you know it!

NCLA nail wraps are so easy , because not only do they come with plenty of wraps (in case you mess up) but they also include a full size nail file, and complete instructions. The only thing else you need is some clear nail polish!

1.Paint your nails with clear nail polish and let it dry completely.

2. Choose the right size nail wrap for one nail at a time and apply. (I found I needed to step up one size for most of my nails, and you can sort of stretch the width of each nail wrap before applying, if you need to.) Start at the cuticle and smooth over your nail, working out any bubbles. Use the nail file to file off the excess tip, using gentle downward motions.

3. Finish with one or two more coats of clear polish. Let it dry, and you’re done!

BeautyWhite Eyes: A Stunning Look for Summer

When the weather lightens up it’s time to brighten up your beauty routine, and this year we’re taking tips straight from the runway. White eyes are a popular pick for summer, but you could use this stunning style as a snowy look for winter and the holiday season, too. A swipe of light-colored eye shadow paired with a bright white or silver eye liner is the way to go here, and be sure to highlight the inner corners of the eye to get that truly mesmerizing gaze. For a complete how-to check out this eye brightening tutorial.

BeautyBeauty Tip Tuesday: Make Any Lipstick Matte

Our makeup artist Sarah is sharing her tips for making all of our models look flawless for their closeups! Today she’s showing us how to make any lipstick matte using our NYX Studio Finishing Powder and the fab summer lip color, Citrine by NYX Black Label. You can use any of your favorite lipsticks under the finishing powder.

MatteLips

Step 1: Apply your fav lipstick.
Step 2: Pour small amount of translucent powder in the lid of the container. Choose a fluffy brush that you don’t mind getting lipstick on. Sarah prefers a flat precision brush. Swirl and tap some of the excess powder off.
Step 3: Working from the middle of the lip and outward, lightly tap the powdered brush and see the shine disappear to matte!
