Mix & Match Manicure for a Busy Girl Nails

Hello beautiful! I've always been a huge fan of the mix and match manicures although I find myself always going back to the standard look with an accent nail. Today's design is another challenge for the Busy Girl Nails summer challenge (Hashtag: #busygirlnails). Here's is my week 5 design for Mix Match.



It's a pretty simple design but most of the work goes into applying the studs into the correct positions. 

Get the look:
  1. Apply two coats of OPI's Italian Love affair (such a sweet name!). Allow to dry and then add your favorite top coat to seal in the color.
  2. For your baby finger, use a black stripper brush polish to apply a chevron pattern V to the tip of the nail bed. Fill in the space with the black and then use a silver stripper brush polish to accent the black V.
  3. For your ring finger, I'm using black studs from BornPrettyStore and applying then in a diamond shape pattern spaced equally starting from the middle top of the nail bed. For easy application use a wax pencil to pick up the studs and place then into the shape desired.
  4. For the middle finger, using your black stripper brush polish, apply 3 vertical lines equally spaced on the nail bed and use the silver stripper brush polish to highlight these lines. 
  5. For the index finger, apply BornPrettyStore clear rhinestones in a border framing design. 
  6. I left the thumb bare but feel free to apply whatever mix match pattern you desire. Try polka dots or a criss cross pattern.
