Nails of the Week: Pink & Purple

flash :/

Finals preparation week is here! Time for me to find any excuse to NOT study, yeayyyy!!!
It's really horrible actually, I know I must study but my brain's all like "ohhhh look! A dust particle, let's inspect it". It was a similar situation when I was staring at my nail polish collection (which almost beats my shoe collection, by the way). The pink and purple polishes were just sitting together when my brain thought "hey! I think I can make this work". Ten minutes later, I came up with this crazy fun  design. It can work with other colors as well, but I think I was in a particularly Barbie-ish mood, so voila. 


What you'll need:



Two solid colors, pink (BasketCase by ORLY) purple (Grapepop by China Glaze), and a shiny color that will act as a transition ( in my case "Wonder Violet" by miniColorama Maybelline).



1. Apply one coat of the solid colors to half of your nail, I suggest you start with the lighter color. Make sure you get the side first, then the middle. In order to ensure that you get the straightest line possible in the middle 


2. Apply one coat of the other solid color, preferably the darker one, on the other half of your nail in the same manner. I use the darker one second so that I can fix the line in the middle better. (The purple will be able to cover the mistakes of the pink.)


3. If you apply each coat properly you can get away with one coat, which is better because it's less messy, but if you need another coat then go ahead and apply another one.


4. Apply a very thin line of the shiny color which is the transition right down the middle. Also apply a dot of it right on the end of the line on your nail bed. There will probably be a gap there, so this is where the transition color comes in to fix that.

Finish off with a top coat and voila!
