Summer Nail Art | Tom Bachik

Insanely Eye-Catching Nail Art You Can Pull Off in Just 3 Steps

Tom Bachik is adored by everyone on our team. He not only creates gorgeous manicures for Jennifer Lopez, Zooey Deschanel, and Heidi Klum — maybe you've heard of them? — but he's also the kindest, coolest guy to work with.

Tom started off as a graphic designer just wanting to make some extra cash. Now he's creating manicures for magazine spreads, red carpets, and even big celebrity weddings.

While in studio, Tom showed us how to create two supersimple (and head-turning, for that matter) manicures that anyone can do at home: one with feathered flair and one is a pretty print. Both are big for the Summer, given texture, bright colors, and patterns are huge for the season.

Manicure 1: Feathered Flair

Step 1: Paint your nails white



Step 2: Cut a feather, and place it on top of the white polish. If your polish is dry, try applying a clear topcoat first, then apply the feather.


Tip: Align the spine of the feather with your cuticle for an asymmetrical look.



Step 3: Cut off the excess feather and file around the nail. Finish with a topcoat.


Manicure 2: Pretty Patterns

Step 1: Paint your nails with a pink base polish





Step 2: Apply Scotch tape to mask part of the nail, and paint the nail with purple polish; remove the tape immediately.





Step 3: Let the purple polish dry, then continue this process with a bright pink polish. Finish with a topcoat.
