Scalloped Nail Tutorial!

 Recently I attempted to do a scalloped nail tutorial, and I actually love how it turned out!

 First I started with Sally Hansen's Lacey Lilac as my base color.

The next step is to pick a second color that matches. I chose Coral Reef by Sally Hansen. Then paint a stripe up one side of the nail. Go to the middle and start a little higher and paint another stripe up. Lastly, start a little higher and paint a stripe up the other side. Your stripes should be wide enough that they overlap to create a solid color.

Lastly, I chose Revlon's Gold Rush and did the exact same thing. I think it turned out really well, and I can't wait to try it again in a few weeks with autumn nail colors! 

Have you tried scalloped nails? What color combo would you use? Tell me in the comments!

  2. Ouuuuu these are soo cute! I'm going to try these! But personally I think I might be going for colours that are the same but in different shades.

    Much love from Epp,



  4. I've never tried scalloped nails but I've always wanted to. I love the colours you've used but I totally agree with the commenter who would go for different shades of one colour 'cause I bet that would look great.

    Great post :)
