Nail Files + Mani Tutorial! [Guest Post]

May 10, 2013

I'm on my way home today and I can hardly freaking wait to kiss my girl and my baby daddy. I'm also super excited to have such a nail pro guest posting for me today! Thank you so much, Kali for your post, I LOVE this mani! Go say hi to Kali! 

Hello lovely ladies, and Happy Friday! I'm Kali at Kali Now Living and I am honored and excited to guest post for Jessica. I love her blog, really love the adorable pics of Violet and pretty much need her sense of humor to get me through the work week. Let's wish Jessica a safe trip home!

I've been addicted to nail polish for a few months now (ok, not really but kind of) and really look forward to Friday's Nail Files link up with Tara and a few other great gals. A few weeks ago I shared a tri-color spring mani, and I've had several requests for a tutorial. It's pretty much foolproof and easy as 1, 2, 3, 4!
Start with a base coat. Add two coats of your favorite nail polish color and let dry. Add a diagonal stroke of your second polish color, working from the side of the nail towards the center. Let dry. Working from the opposite side of your nail, add another diagonal stroke using your third color. 



This manicure features Julep's Helen, Toni and Zelda. I'd love to see what fun color combinations you come up with and hope you all have a great weekend.

Very Cool look!

Love that!! I should really start doing my nails more, I'm just bad about keeping up with it. The paint starts to chip and they end up looking horrible, then I spend two whole days picking the polish off instead of removing it!

Very pretty! I highly doubt mine would turn out so good.

I love this look and the color combo! I seriously can't do anything. I've tried polka dots and stripes and mixing colors and I just plain suck at it.

Kali that looks fab! If I tried that it would look it would end up looking like those Pinterest fails. Nailed it.
