Aviators, cat-eye, or classic square – nothing says summer like a pair of shades. Keep your nails cool in the sun, too, by painting this beachy staple on your tips.

What You’ll Need:

  • White nail polish
  • Five colored nail polishes
  • Sally Hansen’s Nail Art Pen, in black
  • Scrap paper
  • Mechanical pencil
  • Clear top coat

The How-To:

  1. Paint your nails with two coats of white nail polish and let dry.
  2. Using the black nail pen, draw two closed U-shapes side by side on each nail to create the lenses.
  3. Draw two thin lines at the corner of each “lens” for the arms of the sunglasses.
  4. Drip a few dots of the first colored polish on the scrap paper.
  5. Dip the tip of the pencil into the polish and carefully fill in the “lenses” with it.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 with the remaining polishes.
  7. Finish with a clear top coat.
