Stay refreshed and healthy all summer long with a nutritious honey and berry smoothie from Honeydrop Beverages. The sweet treat made from local, raw honey provides an abundance of antioxidants, enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, calcium and more and goes well with this smoothie recipe for added health benefits. To complement this delicious summertime blend, we turned to Beauty Now, an on-demand beauty app that lets you book anything from blowouts to manicures, to help us get into New York's Tenoverten Salon to create a custom dotted look.

Directions:

Prep the nails with a base coat. Paint all ten nails with the lilac base color. Add a second coat. Dip the striping brush into the amethyst color and create dotting in a diagonal fashion across the nail. Feel free to get creative and make whatever design you like to mimic the berry seeds. Let dry and finish with a topcoat.
