Remember box jackets with shoulder pads and sleeves rolled up to the elbow? You too can get your Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas on. On your nails, of course.
Follow this recipe for a totally radical Miami Vice-inspired manicure:
1. Start with two coats of a bright colour: We love Gelish in Samuri or Essie in Bermuda Shorts, R99.95.
2. Slap tape over the nail on your ring finger at an angle, and apply two coats of a different colour to the exposed area. Try Gelish in Mint Icing or Essie in Pretty Edgy, R99.95.
3. Layer on a clear topcoat with Gelish Top It Off Gel Sealer or Essence Studio Nails Allround Talent top coat, R24.95.
4. Don’t forget your Ray Bans!
