Summer Nail Trend: GEO + GOLD

Beauty, Beauty Tutorials v June 4, 2016

With summer just around the corner, we invited our friend Adrienne of DID Nail Paint back into the studio to show us a fun nail trend for summer. We love DID Nail Paint because it comes in bold statement colors that are cruelty free, non-toxic (formaldehyde, toluene, DBP and camphor free = happy nails) and made locally in Brooklyn.

Along with our lovely model Molly, EcoHabitude’s UX designer, Adrienne shows us how to create a fun, glowing summery nail look inspired by geometrics, the sun and the shimmery beach sands of summer.
