Layering 101

6th Dec 2021

When it comes to nail polish, we believe there are no rules. Applying one polish over another is a fun way to experiment, allowing you to mix, match, and play without having to make a new purchase to try something new. Getting creative means that your polish collection now includes new shades in new finishes.

Let's make the most of your polishes with layering!

Watch our video below for a basic introduction to layering nail polish and to discover the transformative power of one coat of polish. This video shows the shift that shimmer, holographic, and iridescent polishes can make to a creme lacquer.

Now that you've mastered the fundamentals, it's time to experiment with your own DIY looks. We recommend starting with a plain piece of white scrap paper and working within similar color families while you're learning the ropes. Bring out your collection and start layering!
