Half and Half

This manicure was inspired by Deez Nailz. For the life of me I cannot remember which post I read where she did something similar to this! If I knew I'd link you to it. Her manicures are always so creative and amazing. I'm always watching for what she does next!

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I have been trying out some of the nail art ideas in my "inspiration file". So most likely I'll be posting more inspired looks throughout this week.

For this manicure I used Ulta Set The Nude as the base. Then I applied a piece of Scotch tape to half my nails and painted over it with Claire's Evil Queen. I then used a tooth pick as a dotting tool and made dots of the opposite color on both sides of the nail.

Later I removed this manicure and tried it with pink...


For the pink version I used Ulta Noel as the base and China Glaze Ahoy on the other half of the nail. I did not use the tape for this one and instead free handed the halves. I got too lazy to wait for it to dry.

I immediately fell in love with the pink version, slapped on a topcoat (SV) and wore it for a few days! So pretty, I love it!


Which one do you like better?
