How To: The Louboutin Mani

Here's what you will need:
  1. 1 red nail polish   

  2. 1 black nail polish

  3. A cotton swab

  4. Nail polish remover

{Step 1} PAINT UNDERSIDE OF NAIL TIPS RED

Face the palm of your hand up. Paint a thin coat of your chosen red nail polish to the underside of your nail tips. If you have shorter nails—ones that don't extend past the fingertips—get a set of clear press-on nails and paint the bottoms before applying them to your nails. Apply two coats of red polish on each finger and repeat process on your other hand.

{Step 2} CLEAN UP SKIN SURROUNDING NAILS

Dip a Q-tip or a wooden nail stick with tissue on the tip into nail polish remover. Use the wet end ofthe Q-tip to remove any red polish that got on your skin.

{Step 3} PAINT NAILS BLACK

Next, paint two coats of black polish onto the tops of your nails. Other color options in place of black: beige or cream polish. Finish with a top coat.
