When the new NLCA Summer of '69 nailcolor collection arrived at the office, we were jumping for joy! After all, the set is available to you guys in April, just in time for Coachella. We gave the standard French manicure a twist by swapping nude for neon and white tips for slightly oxidized, 3-D glitter.

How to Get Them:

1. Apply a thick coat of color to all nails, here we used NCLA's I'm With the Band

2.Once dry, apply a contrasting nail lacquer to no more than a third of the nail. This can be done by alternating each stoke (making one longer than the other). For an intense effect, try Nail Inc's Sloane Square 3D glitter polish.

3. Seal in the color with a top coat like NCLA's Gloss It!
