This morning I was reading a guest post on Rarasaur by the awesome NotAPunkRocker. In said post our punk rocker protagonist painted her nails in two tone colours inspired by Rara. The blog included a ‘how to’ section, so, inspired by people way cooler than myself, I gave it a go. The results are one step up from a Pinterest fail. Two-tone nails? nailed it!
The ‘how to’ called for painting the light colour first, so green went on, waiting until it dried and then taping my nails to separate light from dark. The original post had nails separated horizontally. I decided to go vertical because, well, why not? I added the tape to one hand then went to tape up the other hand and accidentally got my fingers all sticky taped together. OK, rip off all the tape and try again. This time tape and paint one hand at a time (that’s my hot tip if anyone else wants to give it a go). My lines were not as clean as Ms NotAPunkRocker’s. Nor were my edges as neat. But i think it looks cool. Thanks for the ‘how to’ guys!
