First: credit where credit due: I just saw this manicure yesterday tweeted from Modern Salon.
I thought - ok - sure - for clients but this could also be one for the DIY'er.
I cleaned off my 3 day old, salon pro-manicure and pulled out my editorial nail kit.
As recommended in the Modern Salon instructions, I choose three shades: Sally Hansen White Tip,
Essie Splash of Grenadine and OPI Lincoln Park After Dark.
Then, in room temperature water I poured in the Sally Hansen White Tip. At first it seemed to really thin out in my plastic container, so I was concerned this wouldn't work out:
I proceeded with the next steps laid out in the Modern Salon blog.
Layer in a Bullseye...
Then swirl with a toothpick..
AND DIP! (makes me think of Roger Rabbit - NOT THE DIP!!)
To clean up edges it may help to wrap an orange stick with cotton and dip it into nail polish remover.
I know, looks like a really bad puppet! Wrap it around then dip it into the remover.
Clean up edges... et viola!
