These starburst nails were found in the March issue of Harper's Bazaar. The look was designed by Kristina Estabrooks for a runway show; the black and white detail fits perfectly within spring fashion!
Of course, it's an easy DIY for you guys at home!
Feel free to do this in any color scheme if you are more of a color person.
Let's get started.
Step 1: Gather materials. Needed are two nail polish colors, masking tape, scissors, and a top coat.
Step 2: Paint your nails the base color (white for the look). Take masking tape, cut a small piece, and cut out triangles so it looks like a starburst. Make them small to fit at least 2-3 points on your nail.
Step 3: Wait until your nails are completely dry. Press your tape onto the top righthand corner of your nail, not covering up too much of the nail. Take your second color, and paint the bottom part of your nail; not too thick of a coat, or it will bleed when you peel the tape off. Peel the tape off quickly but gently. You should be left with a starburst pattern!
Step 4: Repeat on the other nail (I used the same cut piece of tape for the corresponding nails, but don't over-use otherwise it will loose its stickiness and give a messy look.
Step 5: Repeat for each nail. Finish with a top coat if needed.
Sort of futuristic, graphic, bold, interesting!
