With the holiday season in full-swing, you may want to default to deep berry and sparkly shades. While those are great (we can’t say no to a good burgundy mani), we’re making the case for this striped design — an elegant upgrade to your nail game that’s perfect for Thanksgiving. With just a few polishes and a steady hand, take your mani to the next level. Get the look, ahead:

You Need:

Essie Plumberry

Essie Urban Jungle

Essie Stylenomics

Essie Petal Pushers

Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil

Essie First Base Base Coat

Get the Look:

Step 1: Prep your nails with Essie Apricot cuticle oil.

Step 2: Start with a thin coat of First Base Base Coat.

Step 3: Apply two coats of Essie Urban Jungle and let dry.

Step 4: Apply a thin strip of Plumberry using a nail striping brush.

Step 5: Apply a stripe of Stylenomics below Plumberry — making sure that Urban Jungle is still visible.

Step 6: Add a stripe of Petal Pushers in between the two stripes of Stylenomics — Urban Jungle should be visible on each side.

Step 7: Seal the look with clear top coat.
