They look yummy, but please do not eat them!
This was a complicated experiment for me. It took me a while to get these perfect. This could be because it was hard, or because I am a perfectionist...
- Yellow, Orange, and White nail polish
- Clear top coat
- A steady hand
First paint your nails white. I had to do two coats. I guess you could just paint the top half, but I like to paint the whole nail to prevent bumps.
Then paint the bottom 2/3 of your nails orange.
I used tape for this but it made it so much harder. The tape kept sticking to the nail polish and lifting it up. I had to redo so many nails using this technique. I even tried waiting 2 hours for the white to dry before using the tape and it still stuck. It was awful so I gave up on tape and did the rest by hand. It turned out pretty good though. It's not as straight as I wanted, but it's better than I thought it would be and it took a lot less time.
Then add the yellow polish to the last 1/3 of the nail. It gets a bit bulky so be careful. It will also take a long time to dry since there is so much polish. Don't forget your clear top coat. So shiny!
*tip: if you mess up there is an easy way to correct it. Get your finger a bit wet with spit (yes I said spit) and then correct your mistake. For some reason spit does not mess up nail polish and you can smooth out mistakes easily. Gross but useful.
