Here are the simple steps to get the ‘Swirly Pink’ nail art done in the comfort of one’s home –

  • Opt for a pink-hued French manicure as the base for Keke Palmer’s ‘Swirly Pink’ nail art
  • For the French manicure, prep the nails by cleaning them from the old nail paint. Shape them to the desired length in neat squares
  • Apply a base coat to protect the nails and let the pink color pop
  • With a nail guide or tape, create a straight line across the tip of the nails and give a French manicure effect. Place the tape right underneath the natural white tip
  • Staying within the tape borders, coat the nail tips with pink polish
  • Initiate with a single thin coat, let it dry well, and follow with a second coat. This will assist in giving a more intense pink hue
  • Carefully remove the tape once the pink paint dries
  • Clean the nail edges using a small brush dipped in nail remover with the aid of a high-shine top coat, and seal the manicure for a glossy finish
  • Take a fine-tipped nail art brush to make the mattified effect of the top coat. This fine-tipped brush will assist in forming the matte-effect swirls while adding a distinctive touch to the nails
