I am using topshop an illamasqua nail varnish. Nail art pens are easy to get.
Also get some cello tape ready.
File each nail into a point. This can take a while but the results are worth it.
Final result of filing. Pointed, rounded and clean!
First coat of the lilac varnish. Make sure the application is thin and even.
Make sure paint it to the edges an near your cuticle.
Second coat of lilac. Done be scared to really slap it on.
Take a piece of cells tape and stick it to your hand a few times so it looses a bit of the stick. This way it won't damage the polish underneath.
Stick it on your nail leaving a third of the nail uncovered. Make sure the line is straight.
All nails done and your ready to paint.
Paint a good lashing of the natural varnish. Making sure to not go under the cello tape.
Once completely dry carefully take off the tape.
Draw a line in between the two colours. Make it consistent and straight
Add triangles or whatever shapes/patterns!
I've added dots to the other side!
Give each nail a good coating of clear polish to make sure it lasts and has a lovely finish!
All done! Use whatever colours or designs you want and enjoy.
