Paint the bottom half your nails with a white or silver. If you have tape to make a straight line, you can do that. Since I didn’t have any, I just painted over my hands to ensure I got an even line.

*Tip – My first college roommate taught me this tip to get nail polish off your hands. Put your hands in a bowl of cold water and then the polish will easily come off your skin, but not your nails!*
