Awesome Twilight Zone-esque manicure!
An experiment that actually turned out professional looking! And after only two tries!

Also, I put 20 minutes because I have no idea how long it took me and I was trying to account for drying time between layers... still, I don't think it should take that long...

Sorry about the lack of pics... This isn't going so great...

  • Step 1

    Paint all nails black. Don't worry if the coverage isn't perfect, only do one coat.

  • Step 2

    After black is fully dry, swipe the green over the top of it. Try to only go over it once, so get a good amount on your brush and paint from one side to the other, instead of from the middle.
    Also, you want a good amount of green, but don't worry if streaks of black show through. That's kind of the idea. ;)

  • Step 3

    Again, wait until the green layer is completely dry before proceeding to the top coat.

    After the top coat dries you can go ahead and clean up your cuticles with a Q-Tip. This sounds like a given, but I tried to do it between layers the first time and messed it up a little >.>
