How I Do My Border Nails

Hi guys! So I've been seeing a lot of Border/Frame/Outline nails lately and I love this trend! The first time I did this, I painted the border around my nail last. You probably thought that that was the easiest way to do this trend, but I've found a way that works much better, and is much easier, for me anyway. 

 All you need for this is two nail colors and a white

I used:

Sinful Colors Neon Melon

Kleancolor Concrete Gray

Essie Blanc

Here's how I did it

 Step 1. So I started with a nail strengthener and a sticky base coat like always. Then, Put a coat or two of the color you want as the border.

Step 2. Now, take the nail color you want in the middle. Move your nail polish brush in the motion that the arrows go in the picture. Start with it at the bottom like you would normally paint your nails, but leave your border color showing at the bottom. Move the polish brush in a curved motion and pick the brush up just before it reaches the tip of your nail. If you mess up, don't worry! It's an easy clean up!

Step 3. Clean up and Fix up. I had some mistakes that I needed to fix, so I took a white nail polish and went over the gray to erase it. When the white was dry, I just took the color I used for my border and went over it. Then, you can just clean up any messy edges, or clean up polish you got on your fingers.

Now just add your favorite top coat and show off your awesome nails!
