NAIL IT WITH MADELINE POOLE
Fine-art restorer. Nail-graphics pioneer. Celeb manicurist.
Beauty signature: Red lipstick (NARS Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil in Cruella is the only one I ever wear!).
Beautiful images: I love the city at night when the lights are sparkling. And fireflies.
Beauty tip: An angled makeup brush with a little polish remover is perfect for cleanups.
Beauty annoyance: I hate waiting for nail polish to dry—it's so boring.
Beauty advice: Don't cut your cuticles!
CUSTOM-CURATED NAIL ART
Created exclusively for Nordstrom
01: Start with a clear base coat. Next, paint each nail a different color.
03: Paint a horizontal stripe across the top third of the nail.
02: Paint a diagonal stripe from the bottom corner of your nail to the opposite top corner. Use the side of the polish brush to create a steady straight line. Fill in the remainder with color.
04: Finish with a clear topcoat.
P.S. Don't forget to let polish dry between coats!
01: Start with a clear base coat. Next, paint all nails a deep red color.
03: Use your shine topcoat to paint around the "moon" area. Start in the corner of your nail and slowly pull the brush around to the opposite side in a circular motion.
02: Apply a matte topcoat to each nail.
04: If you'd like to add a matte tip, simply use your matte topcoat again along the end.
01: Start with a clear base coat. Next, apply two coats of deep purple polish.
03: Create small, irregular blobs of gold and pink in clusters along your nails; leave a good amount of purple showing through.
02: Streak light lines of color around nails using the copper and green (these will be the leaves).
04: Gather a very small amount of paint on your brush to paint the centers of the flowers, using pink for the gold and gold for the pink. Finish with a clear topcoat.
