With Valentines Day only a few days away I was inspired to do this color blocked mani with red and pink. Keep reading for the how-to!

You’ll need:

-2 different colors of polish (I used this and this)

-a quick drying topcoat

-washi tape

Directions:

1. Paint your nails with the base color of your choice. Let them dry completely!

2. Place a small piece of washi tape across the bottom half of your nail. (Washi tape works best because scotch tape is too sticky and will just pull off your base color)

3. Paint just the top half of your nail your second color. Keep the coats thin and then cover with a topcoat. After a few minutes slowly peel off the tape.

4. I decided to cover my nails with a glittery top coat because well why wouldn’t you cover it with glitter?

Enjoy your pretty manicure!
