Loved the blue polish shades that have been oh-so-hot these last few months?

Not quite ready want to say goodbye to the blue waves of summer?

Check and check! That's why I'm sharing this pretty (and pretty easy) blue nail-art tutorial that's perfect for these last few days of August.

The woman behind it is A-list nail expert Jin Soon Choi, who tends to the fingertips of celebs like Anne Hathaway, Taylor Swift and Michelle Williams. Her pro tip for this mani: Don't be afraid to smudge/touch the colour you applied previously—the imperfections are part of the look!

4. Apply an irregular wavy line of mint blue diagonally across the nail. (Jin used her own JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Poppy Blue.)

5. Apply an electric blue and a white the same way, alternating the order and sizes of the lines. (Jin used her own JINsoon Nail Lacquers in Blue Iris and Kookie White.)
