This technique is a bit more labor intensive, but I liked the results so I am going to show you how I did it.
I used three different color polishes and my base/top coat. You will also need to get some blue painters tape. I tried scotch tape, but it left too much residue on my nails.
I applied Revlon’s Scandalous to the bottom part of my nail and let it dry, then removed the tape and re-applied it a bit farther up on my nail on the same diagonal.
I carefully applied my next color in between my tape and the bottom color. For this I used Revlon’s Smoldering. I let this color dry and removed the tape.
Finally I applied my last color to the tip of my nail following the diagonal line created by the middle color. I used Sally Hansen’s Big Money for this step. Once this had dried a bit I applied my Orly Top 2 Bottom as my top coat and then gave them a good spritz with my cooking spray to keep them from smudging.
Of course I touched up the edges after everything was dry.
I think they turned out pretty cute. I got the idea to use tape from Chloe’s Nails, which has lots of great ideas for nails designs and wonderful tutorials.
