Two-tone nail art

More and more trendy, you have already had to meet women wearing a nail art manicure two-color since the beginning of summer. The principle is simple, varnish the first third of the nail with one color, and the remaining two-thirds with another color, starting from the base to the tip of the nail. The resulting effect is perfect for the summer season and gives an effect that is both pop, chic and casual. We explain how to reproduce this type of varnish.

The steps to follow

As a first step, it is necessary to apply on the nail a base coat to protect and strengthen it. Do it for all your nails. The next step is to apply a first color to each nail. It is then necessary to wait 10 minutes to apply a second layer of the same color to have a more vibrant color.

Then you’re going to have to be patient and wait for your nails to dry out. It usually takes 45 minutes. Once your varnish is dry, you will be able to cover the base of each nail (the first third) with tape or masking tape. That’s when you’ll be able to varnish the other two-thirds not covered with scotch with another color. Then let it dry for 20 minutes and place a layer of top coat to give a shiny effect and make the nail art more resistant. Your two-tone nail art is finally over.


When it comes to colors, it’s up to each of you to see what works best for you. However, think about doing tests on one foot to see if this or that color fits well with this or that other color. It is also possible to make a different assembly for each nail. For example, you can varnish the thumb in yellow and midnight blue, the index finger in orange and royal blue, the middle finger in sky blue and red, etc.

It’s up to you to find inspiration or go see photos of stars or others to reproduce the same colors. Regardless of the colors, the way to do it will be the same as described above. You will be able to surprise your entourage a two-tone nail art that change from classic varnishes.
