1. Pick your colors and get a hair pin. You will use the rounded end to make the lines. I chose purple for this tutorial, but you don't have to. Remember to give this your own twist.
|The colors I chose (left to right): Sexy Divide, Bahama Mama,|
French Tip White, and Chinchilly.
2. Paint your nails white. Make sure you wait at least half an hour to ensure that the color dries completely. If you're using a quick dry nail polish, you don't have to wait as long. But, better safe than sorry.
3. Using the bobby pin, dip the rounded edge into the purple nail polish and draw an 'X' on your nail.
|Tip: don't worry about getting the X perfect, you can correct it|
later when you paint over it.
|Be careful and try and stay in the lines! Think of|
it as coloring in your coloring book.
|Tip: If drawing the gray lines is too difficult, you can use tape to|
help guide you. Simply tape it on the desired area and paint on the
edge of the tape.
I would love to see any photos you have if you try this tutorial or any tips/tricks you have that would make this easier.
