Demi Lovato graces the August issue of Cosmopolitan with a bra-baring look, but it’s worth averting your eyes downward… to her black and silver nail art (get your mind out the gutter).

Radio.com asked Kandalec in to create a nail art design that anyone can do for summer music festivals. She showed us the flower design in the video below that she developed after playing around with swirling colors. Check it out above.
