Super Simple Nail Art
Once again, these pictures are awful! Within the next couple of weeks, I should have access to a better camera, so please forgive me in the meantime. This was actually a requested topic from a friend, in case you're wondering why I chose to do this.
First off, start with two colours, I chose pink for colour one and purple for colour two. On your left hand paint all your fingers completely except for your pinky. Then paint your pinky finger the second colour and do the opposite on the other hand.
Now you're going to leave your pinky fingers and thumbs one colour, so you want to make sure that you get those all nice and smooth.
On your first finger (closest to your thumb) use the opposite colour and paint the upper diagonal half of your nail.Then your middle finger, you only paint the top half (with the opposite colour). On your ring finger you paint the top diagonal half of your finger. To give you more of an idea of what this is meant to look like; your main colour should make a trapezoid if you put all three fingers together. The first image is the best example of this, but remember that my hands are pointed down.
A couple of things to remember, make sure that the first coat that you do dries completely before you continue on with the design aspect. You may want to choose two polishes that have the same consistency, one of mine was really thick while the other was super thin and it didn't really turn out the way that I wanted it to, it was also hard to remove after wards.
Hopefully you try this!
