The Quickest, Easiest Reverse French Manicure, Ever!

We excel at nail art. And that's a fact we've always taken pride in. We consider ourselves pros when it comes to, well, nailing it...except for the dreaded reverse french mani. Sure, it looks like it should be a breeze, what with the use of two colors and minimal design. But we are telling you now, it ain't easy.
So, we asked manicure superstar Dawn Sterling to show us – and you – how to tackle this seemingly tough trick in just two steps. You read that right: two. And we have to admit, it's not as hard as we thought it would be, especially with Sterling's expertise guiding the way. Hit play to see just what we're talking about. And then, go ahead and give it a whirl for yourself.
