DIY || Two-toned nails

Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

Welcome beauty lovers, this is officially my first beauty post on this blog and I’m going to share with you how to achieve a Two-toned nail. I wasn’t initially going to make this a post but while I was trying to make my nails I just decided to blog about it since I haven’t yet made any beauty post. I wasn’t always one to do my nails myself until I realised it saves a lot of cost but sometimes though the stress in diy (do-it-yourself ) can just make you want to go get it done by someone.

This is actually my first time having two colours of nail polish to one nail. I just wanted to paint my nails nude before I saw this red paint and my imaginations went wild. My initial plan after seeing the red paint was to paint some fingers red and some nude but seeing how long the false nails were (which I decided to later cut), I felt to do a double-tone.

 

Putting that aside, let’s get to how achieved  two-toned nails.

What you’ll need:

False nails

Two colours of nail polish

Translucent nail polish

Some cotton wool

Nail cleanser

Blade

Scissors and nail file (optional for ready made nails like the ones used)

Glue

Paper tape

Patience

Step 1: Clean your fingernails to remove any stain and just a form of prepping

Step 2: Fix the false nails to your finger using the glue and make sure each false nail matches he exact same size as your real nails.

Step 3: This is optional but you can start by applying the translucent nail polish on your false nails and leave it for about 2-3 minutes to dry. Make use you paint it once in order to make the nail polish light on your nails else it will begin to smudge.

Step 4: Once step 3 is dry, get your paper tape ready, get a bit out of it, divide it into two because using it like that is just like a waste. After cutting it in two, cut each half into rectangles depending on how long your tape is.

Step 5: Put the paper tape on each finger on both hands making sure the lengths are equal. The first tape would cover the tip of your nails and leave the bottom for you to paint

Step 6: Paint the bottom with your preferred colour. Paint every finger carefully and leave it to dry.

Step 7: After it has dried, remove the tape. Then cut some more tape. You will then use these new cut tapes to cover the part which you just painted. That is why your nails have to perfectly dry to prevent smudges.

Step 8: Paint the upper part of your nails on each fingers of both hands and leave to dry. Once it’s dry, remove the paper tape.

Step 10: Slay away

Voila! Your nails are done and beautiful. Thank me later.

PS: The nails I got were ready made so it was already filed. For yours are not, you would need to trim and file them.

Thank you for reading this post.

Till we meet again
