If you’re currently obsessing over instagrammable nail art but the words “nail stamp” give you anxiety, this is the perfect DIY for you. The genius babes at Essie came up with a T-shirt stripe nail look that’s perfect for the ‘gram, gives you all types of 90’s nostalgia and takes all of 10 minutes. This look is chic, fun and will give you major flashbacks to a simpler time –– when Saturday mornings were for cartoons and you had a huge crush on Zack Morris (we won’t judge if you still do!).

Get the look:

You’ll Need:

Base Coat: First Base Base Coat

Essie Colors: French Affair, A-List, Take Me To Thread, Pearls of Wisdom, and Butler Please

Top Coat: Good To Go


Starting with a base coat, apply a thin layer of polish to nails. Apply two coats of Knee-high life and let dry fully. Using a thin striping brush, apply a thin stripe of As if! straight across. Continue applying thin stripes of Mixtaupe, Dressed to the Nineties and Saved by the Belle. Seal with Essie Good To Go top coat.
