Best for impact striped statement nails were seen all over the spring summer 2015 runways.  The look is easy to do at home. Here is City Style and Living Magazine’s (CSL) guide.

THE LOOK: Nail art takes a back seat to classic lines and stripes with a splash of colour.

WHY IT WORKS: Linear two-tone nails resemble the uber-popular French manicure with a twist.  Bold colour contrast is a great way to add interest to an outfit.

HOW TO: This look was created by Inni as a nail wrap. To replicate, begin by applying a base-coat of white nail polish then use a liner brush to paint bright coloured lines.  For thicker lines apply more pressure.
