The V Manicure, by Lancôme

The V Manicure, by Lancôme

Chic and graphic, the V manicure is the must-have of the moment. Relatively easy to do, two colors are applied separately, with the nail base color first. Twelve hours later, stencils (use adhesive tape to make your own) are used to apply the top color. Darker colors will work best for daytime.

With a different color on each finger in a perfect color gradation, this look is simple to apply which means that even beginners can have stand-out nails. Not to be confused with the Rainbow manicure, which features different, contrasting colors on each finger.
