Tuesday Tutorial: Tuxedo Nails

Hey guys, this look was so fun to do- and I hope you take courage and try it out for yourself!  It just takes a little patience and very few supplies :)  

Here's the finished look:


First off you need a dotting tool and a medium striper brush.


 Then you will paint each of your nails with two coats of your favorite white polish for nail art.
I chose Milani White on the Spot.

 
 Next, taking your striper brush and your black polish paint two lines up to a point at the 
middle of your nail.  The color I used was Milani Black Swift.


Using the small end of your dotting tool, fill in the area from the black lines 
to the outside of your nail


Then take the larger side of your dotting tool and drop two dots onto your nail for the buttons.


Finally you will take your striper and draw a wide x right at your cuticle and then 
use the dotting tool to fill in the bow so it looks like this:


 Add a generous amount of top coat carefully and you're all done!


There you have it.  I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that you try this look for yourself.  If you do let me know how it goes!

Over and out
