Full disclosure: This was my second attempt at these nails. First time around I used a shimmery navy and a regular navy and you couldn’t even tell the difference. Embarrassing. But I redid them just for you guys because yanno what? I freakin’ care.
You’ll need the following in your arsenal to recreate this look:
Start by painting your nails the color that you want peeking through the v’s. Keep in mind that since this will only show through at the tip in the center, there is no need to paint your entire nail. Cutting corners is the path to success.
Next, use the v-shaped nail stickers (or tape, like a normal person) to section off part of your nail near the tip. You’ll want to press down and make sure there are no bubbles in the sticker.
Then, using your other color, paint from your cuticle upwards stopping just past the sticker. Full disclosure part two: I forgot to take a pic the second time I did my nails so this one is from the fuck-up round.
Wait for it to dry for about three minutes, pull off the stickers, add your top coat, and bam! Deepest, bluest, my nails are like a shark’s fin (Additional bun is free of charge).
