  • Milan Nail Art

    Milan is a playground for inspiration. It’s a city rich in history with a vibrant art scene, cutting edge fashion, and breathtaking architecture that sparks our creativity left and right.

    When we created our Muse of Milan collection, we wanted to bring you shades that would inspire you as much as the city has inspired us, so we transformed these 12 new colors into nail art looks that will show off your artistry.

    Today, we’re sharing a look that channels one of fall’s biggest trends to hit Milan – this animal print look got updated with a minimal, negative space twist that feels contemporary and chic.

    Shades You’ll Need:
    GelColor Base Coat
    GelColor Top Coat
    Have Your Panettone and Eat It Too 
    My Italian is a Little Rusty 
    Complimentary Wine
