How to Do a Two-Toned Tips Manicure

Hey, guys. I saw an email today that got me so excited I had to come over here and write a post. If you like fun manicures, I've got a tutorial for how to do two-toned tips. I can see this in so many combinations for spring, like a pastel blue/green, or a hot pink/orange combo for summer. This taupe/black combo is a very office-friendly look that will also look great with a LBD for a night out. Check out the step-by-step below + find out why I got so excited!

[UPDATE 8/20/2018: This offer has come around again. Yay! I thought I would update this post so that you guys can see this awesome deal!]

Did I ever tell you I get boxes from Julep? This is one of those things I'm shocked I've never talked about before, but you've absolutely seen photos of me wearing their whipped matte lipsticks (If it's a gorgeous deep red or pinky-taupe, that's them), their gel liners, and (most of all) their polishes. I've also tried their oil facial cleanser, which smelled divine and came off clean, and have a lot of their mani tools.

They're an affordable monthly beauty box service, but the best part is that you can build your own box every month with polishes, skincare products, makeup, tools, and other things, and they're all of the best quality and they're full-sized products. It's like getting an awesome gift in the mail every month! From you. You know you give you the best gifts. ;)

Anyways, I saw an amazing offer that I wish I could take advantage of, but it's for new subscribers, so I thought I would share with you guys. You can get a 12-piece, full-sized Nail Polish set worth $168 FOR FREE and it's so cool! You can subscribe for just one month and get the free gift, then cancel whenever you want (but you won't want to!)

Getting the deal is easy, just click here to get to the right promo page ---> 12 pc Nail Polish Gift with New Julep Beauty Subscription, choose your subscription (monthly is $24.99/month, 3 months is $19.99/month, and 6 months is $16.66/month, shipping is free) and use the code POLISHGIFT in the promo code box during checkout. Bam! That’s $168 in amazing, fast-drying, long-lasting polish that you just got for free!

Just remember that this service auto-renews, so if you don't want to continue, you'll have to remember to cancel it. 

I actually bring my Julep polishes when I go get manicures. The first time, the nail tech was shocked that she only needed to put on one coat. They're that opaque, which means less drying time. I've never had to put on more than two coats of any of their polishes and they wear longer than any other polish I've tried besides gel. I can hands-down recommend these babies. I actually haven't been disappointed with anything I've gotten from them, which is saying a lot. I've tried a lot of boxes, guys.

So this mani style is the hot new thing and I've been seeing it all over Instagram. If you don't have a striping brush, you can use a very thin craft-type paintbrush or even a toothpick. Get creative!

Step 1: Apply one coat of your base color to each nail and let dry completely.

Step 2: Use the Plie Wand Creativity Kit striping brush and a secondary color to draw a line across each nail.

Step 3: Fill in below each line with the secondary color. Apply your top coat (Julep makes the awesome Oxygen Performance Top Coat and the Freedom Polymer Top Coat ) and you are done!
Enjoy your mani and if you take advantage of that offer, let me know (so jealous!)
