Nail Tutorial~ silver and purple

Today I have an easy yet striking nail tutorial to share! All you need to create this look is two nail colours of your choice and some tape! This is the nail look that I had over Christmas and I loved it. Ready? Here we go...

1. First, apply a solid colour to all of your nails. I chose a soft lilac from Rimmel, but feel free to experiment with any shade. This polish is absolutely amazing. It's reasonably priced, and the brush glides on like a dream!

2. After waiting for the lilac polish to dry completely, place two seperate pieces of tape across your nails. This will create a V-shape.

3. Once all of your nails are ready to go with the tape, paint over the uncovered part of your nails with a silver polish. ( Or any colour of your choice) Don't worry about keeping the polish perfectly between the lines, go ahead and be messy!

4. Peel off the tape and be impressed with yourself. Waa-laah! Your nail look is complete, and all the messy tape goes staright into the bin!
This is the silver nail polish I used to create the triangle tips. Try and experiment with the colour combonations. I once used a black crackle polish on the tips and it created a very dramatic look.

Much love, Vivi
