Busy Philipps got in on the wildly popular two-toned nail trend at her charity auction last night, and she did it well. Sporting a gold bead-embellished turquoise and black manicure, Busy's nails had just enough spunk without being over-the-top. And the look is not too difficult to pull off at home, either. Just grab two opaque polish colours, a steady hand, and some painter's tape.
Paint two coats of the colour you want to appear more dominant on your nail and let it dry completely. Next, lay down a strip of painter's tape to the top or side of your nail and paint two coats of the second colour on the non-taped portion. Once the polish is dry to the touch, gently peel the tape off to reveal your straight-edged finish. Swipe on a top coat and add some embellishments, and you'll be sitting pretty like Busy. Now if only you could finger a gorgeous ring like that to match . . .
