If you want to add a pop of color to a basic mani, read on! Our friends at Julep have shared the flip side mani tutorial that can be used with any polish combination. I suggest pairing a bold with a neutral (in the example, Julep uses on Florence top and Jenna on the flip).

The Flip Side Mani Tutorial

It’s super simple to paint a Flip Side mani on your own – here’s how in three easy steps:


1. File and scrub nails and don’t forget underneath! Then, paint the top of your nails just like you normally would – for best results, we recommend two coats.

2. Grab your Plié Wand with Striping Brush tip, pinch back those finger-pads, and then add polish under your nails.

3. Ta-dah! Beautiful Flip Side nails in less than 10 minutes!
