Lazy Girls Rejoice! This Nail-Art Trick Was MADE For You

So, you've mastered the art of the single-shade manicure — basecoat, two coats of color, and a topcoat. Maybe you can even pull off a decent French. But, nail art? Bet it gives you the shakes just looking at the elaborate 3-D designs that have been trending of late. Well, not this time, because we've got the easiest nail art that you can do without a design degree.
All you need is one tool: OPI's Matte Top Coat. Watch above as our model amps up her mani in just two simple steps — layering the topcoat over a coral lacquer from the OPI Nordic Collection and then using a regular topcoat for easy polka dots. Yep, it's the nail-art tutorial that your inner lazy girl's been waiting for.
