Get the Look: 6 steps to our black magic mani!

 
 
The season's most wicked tips are dark, daring and dotted. Black-on-black feels fresh with a smattering of chic, shiny studs atop a matte base. GL's go-to nail guru, Hannah Lee of Hannah Rox Nails, makes mastering this spotted mani a snap with 6 easy steps. Check it out on page 32 of GL's October/November 2013 issue…or just watch Hannah's exclusive tutorial below!



1. Start with clean, filed and buffed nails. 
2. Swipe on a base coat to prevent air bubbles and chipping, or smooth out uneven nail beds with a ridge filler.
3. Paint on a coat of inky polish and dry for two minutes. Repeat, then let dry for another five minutes.
4. Apply a matte topcoat, and (you guessed it!) let dry. Carefully mop up any polish mistakes with remover./div>
5. Dip a toothpick into clear top coat, then dab on spots. Space 'em out—they'll get bigger with each layer.
6. Wait till the dots are dry, then repeat step 5 a couple more times to create perfect raised dots. What a stud!
