Ace striped nail art

As seen in the Sonia Rykiel x Lancôme makeup campaign, this cool manicure, designed especially for the release of a hot new capsule collaboration from two French style powerhouses, takes one of Sonia Rykiel’s signature prints and brings it into the beauty world. Read on for Lisa Eldridge's, Lancôme Creative Director of Makeup, how-to to for acing the look.

1) Take three of the special sixties’ glam nail polish colors from the Vernis In Love, Sonia Rykiel x Lancôme collection.

2) Next, divide each nail into three imaginary parts. On the right-hand side apply a coat of Café Philo, with its on-trend khaki color. On the left, follow up with a strip of the zesty poppy red shade of the Joie de Vivre polish and then allow both colors to dry.

3) Finally, paint on the middle of the nail the final color, a strip of the denim-blue Saint-Germain. The final result? Saint-Germain sophistication and French fashion at its best.
