Our insider tip for professionals: Particularly spring-like, easy and extraordinary: Choose a white base and various fresh shades of green and use a fine striper brush to draw many small lines from the tip of the nail down to the nail root in the upper third of the nail. The light and dark green tones make them appear like stalks of barley. For a feminine look, you can add a red bow that looks as if its ribbon is holding the stalks together.
