Create Shaded Duochromatic Nails: Tutorial

by mehak on December 19, 2010

in Makeup Tutorials, Nailpaint

I recently learnt a super simple technique of creating shaded nails – light to dark like the blue one below, or just a duochromatic finish like the purple and gold below that. I like to dress these upp with crystals or silver nail art, but this is just the basic technique of creating these that i wanted to share with you, I actually learnt this from one o my favourite youtube beauty guru’s- Misschievous. Hope you enjoy this and try it out yourself

 Pretty simple huh? All you need is different colours of nailpaint and a sponge !  Let me know your results if you try it at home.

This is amazing!
You obviously are full aware of my cherry culture dilemma (as are the rest of the readers cos I always say stuff on ur posts related to that) so i was so looking fwd to the ten nailpolishes I had ordered and was going to wear during this christmas-new year season. But YOU have given me something to be excited about after all that disappointment (yes I love nailpolish THAT much)
Totally trying this now!: )
