I love nail art — but is it just me, or did it get really complicated? These days, it seems like you need an arsenal of tiny paintbrushes and glue guns at the ready (not to mention fantastic artistry skills) to create some of the designs I see on Pinterest — none of which I have. But, I refuse to sit out on this trend, so I came up with ways to give your nails a unique look with just two shades of polish. Count them: two.
From a duo-toned French manicure, to the accent nail, to multi-colored polka dots, the possibilities are endless. I opted for a cool side-by-side look featuring two sorbet shades, which I think is the easiest nail design you can do at home — it's simple enough for even the shakiest hands! And, it packs enough punch to make it special, but is still subtle enough to be worn every day. Click through to see how I make it happen.
