What’s Your Girly Indulgence?

June, 2, 2015

Most of us have one. A friend of mine is so strong that she could play a superhero. She has entered triathlons and hiked Kilimanjaro, but she still harbors a girly pleasure. Hers is hair and, believe me, she’s got gorgeous locks. My indulgence is nails.

I’m a devotee of Julie, the Polish Queen. She’s on top of every nail trend, so I can assure you that the diagonal two-toned design she just painted on me continues to be in vogue. Since everyone has a favorite polish brand, for this tutorial, I’m calling out colors instead of citing products.

Start your two-toned design by drenching your nails in your favorite late spring shade. I chose pink. How bright you go depends on how much you want your hands to take center stage. Then paint a diagonal stripe in the same hue across the top of each nail, making sure to fill in the corners. I chose lavender with a touch of iridescence to add interest and depth.

Finish with a clear topcoat, as always, to protect your color and make your mani last longer.
