This Mani Monday, I have decided to keep things dark this week using my favorite Dior shade, “Smoky”. As always I like to spice things up with a stylish accent nail. Check out how to create this easy yet chic manicure.

What You Need:

  • all in one by essie
  • Glosser by Orly
  • smokin’ hot by essie
  • the perfect cover up by essie
  • All Sparkly and Gold by OPI
  • Like Dreamers Do by Deborah Lippmann
  • Smoky by Dior
  • Skinny Brush – Available on Amazon


1. Polish all nails with “all in one” top coat.
2. Polish your ring finger with “Like Dreamers Do”. Wait for this nail to completely dry.
3. Using “Smoky” polish all remaining nails.
4. Let’s add some decor to your neutral ring finger! Dip your skinny brush into “the perfect cover up”. Slowly draw a diagonal line across your nail. Wipe off the brush using a tissue and apply “smokin’ hot” across your nail forming a small “v” towards the top of your nail.
5. As always, I find adding a bit of glitter makes the nail pop. Outline the crisscross design with “All Sparkly and Gold”.
6. After your nails dry, apply some glosser top coat for that extra shine.
