This will look better on longer nails. Start by cleaning your nails. Remove all dirt, dust, and lint from under the nail.
Paint under the nail with white nail polish. This will help the red stand out. Make sure to press the skin away from the nail so it doesnt stick together.
Repeat with red nail polish.
Dip toothpick into the nail polish remover and carefully wipe away the excess nail polish that got onto the skin. Get as close to the nail bed as possible.
Repeat on all nails. Might be easier to do one nail at a time.
Paint the top part of the nail with any color that you choose. I chose black and nudes in this demo. Then add a shiny top coat or a matte top coat. (matte left/shiny right)
I love the matte top coats cause it does remove a lot of the shine. You can use any color combo with this tutorial. :)
