Nail A.D.D

Ok, so my addiction to nail polish and ability to give myself manicures I truly hate has made it impossible to only post a manicure once a month. So here we go. This manicure is so, so easy! As long as you have a steady hand, there is no reason you can’t do this free hand. Take a gander.

What you need:
For this particular manicure I chose to use a base and a glitter top coat that were similar in hue.Β Β I think it would look pretty cute with seriously contrasting colors and that may very well be my next mani. Until I get some other bright idea and try something else. I used Power Clutch by Essie and My Private Jet by OPI.

Here are the easy steps you need to follow:

Step 1: Paint your nails with the base color.

Step 2: Let dry completely.

Step 3: Apply a second coat of the base color.

Step 4: Let dry completely, again.

Step 5: With a very steady hand, paint a straight line up half the nail. Starting at the bottom of the nail and going towards the tip is the easiest.

Here’s another view.Β 

I like the subtle look of this manicure. You almost have to look twice before you even realize it’s not just the standard mani. Try this yourself with your own combination of colors and let me know how it works out!

  1. At first glance of that photo I didn’t even notice the other half of the nails with the creme polish! It’s so subtle and simple but still really effective. I’m loving the charcoal grey kind of colour, too!
