This is a quick and easy springtime nail, that looks cool even if it isn't perfect. All you need are a couple of pretty shades of polish, and some washi tape.
I used a lilac essie color and a matte turquoise color by Maybelline. The matte color really adds a cool dimension to the tips of the nails.
Start with your base coat, and add a second coat if it is still a little sheer.
Tape off the tips of your nails, after they have dried, in little triangle shapes.
Be sure to take the tape off just as the paint is drying, but before it is completely dry. This will keep your lines more clear. The matte nail polish dries really quickly, so you will need to remove the tape almost as soon as you finish painting.
