Two-toned Mani Tutorial

Lately Iv'e been painting my nails just a solid color so i haven't been able to 
do a tutorial. I was on the Essie fb page and saw that the two-toned mani is 
fresh for this fall season. I wanted to do fall colors but since i do live
in south florida i went with these colors instead. What do you think?


Nail Polish:
Top Coat: Seche Vite
Essie: Lapiz of Luxury (Blue)
Essie: Turquoise & Caicos (Mint)


First pick out the 2 colors you want to use.
Then paint ur nails with the lighter color first.
I used 3 coats of the mint one.


You wait for it to dry and then paint one side of the nail
with the second color. It's best to start from the corner in so
you can see how far you want to go. Remember they 
don't all have to be perfectly centered. You can have 
different sizes.



As you can see i painted the blue on one side
then went on to the next nail and painted it on the
opposite side so its a little different & my
lines are different sizes too. :)



And thats basically all you do, just repeat steps
for the other hand. Its really easy to do because 
your basically painting your nails and not doing any
 nail art. Here are more pictures of how it turned out.

  20. Following your gfc and bloglovin too. Can you please send me your direct link to facebook. so i can follow you there too? I have problems followinf peoples facebook if there is juts the like button on the blogpage. Link works better, because the people can choose if they want to follow via their fan page or their private profile. Maybe you can change that for others too. just a tipp :)
