Think pink!

So I saw these nails and instantly fell in love. I know a tad dramatic, but who wouldn't. Simple yet extremely glamorous. Here's the instructions and  the  equipment needed for the tutorial :)

You need:

  • Pale pink nail varnish
  • Gold glitter nail varnish
  • French manicure tip guides 
  • Tissue (for any mistakes)
  • Nail dryer (optional)
  • Cuticle pusher (optional)
  • Clear nail varnish
  1. Place the circular tip guides at the back of your nails. Make sure they are right up close to the skin. As you can see in the picture (the gold section) ^ Make sure the guide is firmly pressed down.
  2. Paint your nails pale pink, then allow drying time. You can use a nail dryer if you'd like to.
  3. Peel the tip guide off- you can use a cuticle pusher for this. 
  4. There should now be a semi circle shape with no colour near the back of your nails. Now you need steady hands. Paint the clear semi-circle gold, with the gold glitter nail varnish. You could always get someone to faintly hold the tip guide just above the gap whilst you paint it. Whichever way you want. Then allow drying time, you can use a nail dryer if you'd like to. 
  5. Paint your nails again, this time use the clear nail varnish. Allow drying time. Once dry, you can use the tissue (or if you have any other tools suitable, toothpicks work well) to clean up around the edges if you're a messy painter.
You're done! Time to go into glamour puss mode. 
Remember to email me pictures of your new nails at arrayostyle@hotmail.co.uk I always love to see what you create!

Here's some of the tools you need to purchase for this tutorial-
