This idea came straight from a picture I saw in my InStyle magazine today. I had minty fingers and wanted to give this look a try. I wish I had better step by steps to show you, but honestly it was pretty easy! You just need a steady hand ;) Here's what I did:
My nails were already painted this mint color and were completely dry when I decided to add on new colors
I chose a lavender color for the top half and my thin-brushed silver glitter for the zig-zags
Instead of taping off my nails for a precise line, I just free-handed the top purple halves. The left hand looked a little better, but honestly, it doesn't really matter if the line is straight or not
I then just carefully drew zig-zag lines across the middle of each nail. I would definitely recommend the polish I use (Art Deco - see above) because it's not too runny and makes the job pretty easy. Even my right hand (that I used my left hand to paint) turned out good! *Patting myself on the back*
Voila! Kinda fun right? The color combo they had in InStyle was light pink and lavender with the silver zig-zags and I loved that look.
Just another idea to add to my book! If I know you, I'd be happy to paint these on your fingers if you so desire ;)
