Manicure Monday – Feeling Purple

Polishes I used:

Left – Forever 21 Polish (from a pack of 10 and no, they don’t take the time to name their polishes. Lame.)

Center – NYC Sidewalkers

Right – OPI Sapphire in the Snow

Step One:

Start with a base coat of your darkest color.

Step Two:

Next paint the second color diagonally across the top half of your nail.

Step Three:

Paint your third color diagonally across the top of the nail leaving a sliver of the second color showing. And that’s it!

Extra tips:

  • Make sure each coat is completely dry before doing the next coat. I used a quick dry polish between each coat.
  • If you don’t have a steady hand, you can use scotch tape to guard the part of the nail you don’t want to paint.
  • Always start with a base and top coat.
  • Clean up mistakes with a Q-tip dipped in polish remover.
  • Whenever I paint my nails I always finish up by applying cuticle oil and hand cream.

This manicure is pretty easy and totally customizable to any outfit, season or event. Choose any colors you like!
