Nails, nails, nails

Alright, so for the longest time I've been trying to master this nail-style and have failed every time. I had seen a tutorial on a blog a while back but never got around to buying the paper stickers needed for it, until a couple days ago...

So what you need is, 2 different nail colors, a nail polish base and top coat, scisors, and these stickers for when you make holes in paper.

First step, Paint nail with base coat, let dry.... Next, paint nail (or part of nail) with first color, this will be the one at the bottom. (I'm using Chanel "Graphite") And let dry for about 15 minutes ( I didn't wait long enough so my nail polish came off with the sticker and I had to repaint it)

Third step, cut stickers in half (while still on paper) and stick them to the bottom of your nail, make sure you stick them properly so the other nail color doesn't slip through!

Next, paint second color over nail, go over the paper a bit to make sure you get every spot and the line is clean ( I know, I paint my nails messy-ly.. but I always clean them after!) {I'm using Chanel "Vendetta"} Let dry for about 20 mins. Again I got impatient and smudged some nails.. Don't take off the stickers until you've done your second quote (if you need to do one)

Once dry, take off stickers and see the beauty :) and finally, apply top quote.
Oh and don't forget to clean up your fingers if you're as messy as me!
