How to Give Yourself the Ultimate Girly Coquette Manicure with the New Frosted Donut Collection!

The coquette trend has been everywhere on social media, and our new Spring 2024 Frosted Donut Collection has the perfect colours to recreate this girly trend! This week in the blog, we are sharing how to give yourself a coquette manicure for the ultimate flirty manicure.

Step 1: Prep Your Cuticles

Before we start our coquette manicure, it is important to prep your nails and cuticles to help give yourself a salon-worthy mani! Start by applying Melt Away Cuticle Exfoliator around the cuticles and nail beds. Wait for approximately 60 seconds, then use our Signature Glass Cuticle Pusher 2-in-1 Cuticle Perfector to gently push back the cuticles. Wipe off the residue for perfectly prepped cuticles!

Step 2: Trim and File Your Nails

For this coquette mani, we want to have a soft round shape on the tips of our nails. To achieve this, use our Signature Nail Clippers Premium Stainless Steel Tool to trim the nails and our Signature Glass Nail File Gentle Precision Filing to shape your nails for round tips.

Step 3: Apply A Base Coat and Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer

Now that nails are prepped and ready, it’s time for nail lacquer! Start by applying a coat of Horse Power Nail Rescue Basecoat to each nail to help protect nails against future nail damage and help prevent nail breakage and let dry. Next, add some colour! For a cheeky chrome manicure, apply Sassy Lassie Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer for a subtle shimmering look. For a flirty pink manicure, apply Sweetiekins Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer for a splendid mani that’s always sparkling.  

Step 4: Nail Art!

To take this coquette manicure up a notch, try adding some nail art with our Signature Nail Art Tools 3-Piece Nail Design Brushes! Whether you chose Sweetiekins or Sassy Lassie for your base colour, we recommend using Cotton Buds Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer to add a bow to your mani on your ring fingernail! Start with our Stippling Brush and draw two ovals in a diagonal shape so the bottom of each oval is touching. Next, draw two curved lines at the bottom of the ovals to create a ribbon-like effect, and voila! A perfectly coquette bow!

Step 5: Top Coat and Cuticle Oil

Now that your nail art is complete, finish off your girly manicure with a top coat of Hardwear Shine UV Topcoat on each nail to help lock in your mani with a brilliant high shine, smudge-free finish. Let dry. Add a layer of Quick Slip Revitalizing Nail & Cuticle Oil with Coconut Oil to help replenish the look of cuticles as the final step of this coquette manicure!
