Kylie Jenner Inspired Nail Tutorial!

Hey Girlies,

I don't know about all of you, but I am obsessed with Instagram! For those of you who don't know what Instagram is, it's basically a social networking app for smart phones, purely for photos!
 Just like Twitter you can follow anyone from friends to celebrities! I personally love the Jenner sisters style (they're the Kardashians little sisters don't you know). Kendall and Kylie are always posting pics on instagram and Kylie posted this pic of her nails a few weeks back.

When I saw this design I thought it was super cute and original. I incorporated the look myself.
My final look is a little different to hers, as I used slightly different shades of orange. This look can be used using any two colours though.

Now on with the tutorial....

1. Remove any nail polish already on your nails and paint your nails with a base coat. This is optional but will help keep your polish lasting longer and prevent damage of your nails. I used the Sally Hansen Double Duty strengthening base & top coat.

2. Allow the base coat to dry and then paint your chosen base polish. I used Tart Deco by Essie. This is a pretty pastel peach. Allow to dry.

3. Next take your second polish. I used California Coral by Essie. This is a pink coral colour, but once I painted it over the Tart Deco it looked more tangerine.

4. Now for the trickiest part that is still surprisingly easy!
Take the second colour and paint diagonal stripes across you nail as shown. Change the direction of the stripe for every second nail. Right-Left then Left-Right then Right-Left and so forth.

5. Allow to dry and then take a silver nail art pen or a thin brush dipped into a silver polish. I used the Nail art freestyle & tip painter from Essence , these are available from Penneys/Primark.

6. Paint a thin diagonal line on your ring fingers, just where the two colours meet.

7. Allow to dry and finish with a top coat!

Now you've got the look!
