Beyonce inspired mani

I found this look online, and I wanted to recreate it.  It is very easy, like every look I try out, LOL. It's inspired by one of Beyonce's tour looks, and also, she's been known for wearing metallic nails (she's a big Minx fan). I think this would be great for a night out, the color combination seems very club-like to me.  Of course, like always, you can switch the colors and add a little something to make it your own! Lets start...

First I used 2 coats of "Easel come, easel go!" from Finger Paints as a base.

Then, I used "Black expressionism", also from Finger Paints, to draw a vertical line right down the middle of the nail.  Since it was my first time, I took my time and did this very slowly to go as straight as possible.  I found this look alone very cool, and I will probably wear my nails just like that soon.

Now, the fun part.  Grab your base polish again, and dab off as much nail polish as you can from the brush, it needs to be almost dry.  Then, apply some random brushstrokes to your black stripe here and there.  Finish off with your favorite top coat to make it last, and you are done!  Neat, uh?
