Improved Mani

Boring old french tips are so old, right guys? So I decided to do something new and fun, that puts a little spin on the original french tip. Enjoy!

Start off with a base coat to protect your nails.

Next, paint your nails a solid red and then let it dry COMPLETELY. If you're not sure if it's dry enough, wait another ten minutes to be sure.

For the next three steps, you will want to do one nail at a time. Leaving the tape for too long will pull up the nail polish or tear the top color if it dries too much.Take a piece of clear tape and place it diagonally across your nail, covering half of it, like in the picture.

Now paint your second color on the un-taped section. For this I used the Hunger Games themed Stone Cold by China Glaze (and I'm really in love with this color!).

Carefully pull the tape off, making sure not to smudge the paint. Do the same thing for each nail.

Cover the nails with a clear coat to give it a nice shine.

And that's it! These simple nails are fun and easy to do, and can add a little color to any style. I hope you liked this tutorial! Thanks for reading!
