I was browsing at Sally Beauty Supply recently when I saw a poster by Nina Ultra Pro that said Trend Alert and had instructions on how to achieve the scalloped tip look. It sounded simple enough so I wanted to give it a try. The poster recommends colors but I wanted to do a Fall appropriate version so I used the 3 new polishes Pixi released for Fall.
For my version of instructions on how to get the scalloped tips look check below the jump. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this super easy nail art!
The product(s) used in this post were provided to TDV for review. For more information check out our disclosure policy.
- Apply two coats of the base color. Let dry.
- Starting on one side of the nail using the second polish (I used Pixi Amazing Amethyst) apply one stroke of polish about three-quarters of the way down the nail. Move to the middle of the nail and do another stroke of the second polish slightly shorter than the first. Then repeat that a third time. Basically, make it look a bit like stairs. Let dry.
- Repeat the above steps with the third polish making the brush just short of the second polish color. And Again, let dry.
- Top with a top coat.
I’d love to know if you’re going to give scalloped tips a try!
