The Girl:
Jessy Plume is the head photographer at O'Neill Girls: She runs the internal photo department and oversees the photoshoots for catalogs and the website. "I love gardening and everything about it," she says. Jessy would love to own an Airstream trailer someday and run a fruitstand on the weekends.

What You’ll Need:
-Orly Bonder basecoat (optional)
-Peach nail polish
-Orange nail polish
-Red nail polish
-White nail polish
-Thin pain brush
-Acetone nail polish remover
-Clear top coat nail polish

How To Do It Yourself:
1. Get all your supplies lined up and ready to go. It might help to un-loosen your nail polish lids and get a small amount of acetone into a little bowl. Start off by applying the Orly Bonder as your basecoat to all your nails (this will prevent nail color from chipping or wearing off). Next paint all of your nails with the peach nail polish. Let dry for about 10 minutes.

2. Using your thin paint brush apply a series of dashed lines to your nails. We used the orange nail polish and made 3 arches each about 7 dashes wide on each nail. Let dry for about 10 minutes.

3. Next you will use the same dashed line technique to add a sporadic pattern of white and red nail polish dashes. Let dry for about 10 minutes.

4. Apply a layer of clear top coat to seal in your Fireflies manicure and you’re all done!
