Heat Wave nails by O'Neill

The Look: Heat Wave

The Girl:
Rebecca Larzik is the Marketing Agency Director at O'Neill Girls. She runs the internal photo and print departments and oversees all creative requests. She is also the magic hand behind all of the O'Neill Girls Manicure Monday blogs and owns about 200 bottles of nail polish! "I always paint one hand a different color then the other," she says. "I'm completely obsessed with cooking and love throwing dinner parties. If I'm not doing that, then I'm usually in a bikini at the beach."

What You'll Need:
-Orly Bonder basecoat (optional)
-Lime aid yellow nail polish
-Hot cherry red nail polish
-Thin paint brush
-Clear coat nail polish

How To Do It Yourself:

1. Step up all of your supplies and unscrew each of the nail polish tops so that you can easily access them. Start off by applying the Orly Bonder as the basecoat to all of your nails (this will prevent nail color from chipping or wearing off). Let dry for a couple of minutes.

2. Paint your left hand with the yellow nail polish and your right hand with the red nail polish. Allow about 10 minutes for the paint to completely dry.

3. Using your small paint brush on your left hand (yellow nails) apply a slightly off center vertical line down the middle of your nail using the red nail polish. Repeat on all fingers.

4. Starting at the tip of your nail, apply a diagonal line working from the center line out. Repeat on both sides of the center line working your way from tip to base.

5. Apply a layer of clear top coat to both hands to seal in your manicure!
