BN Do It Yoursefl Tuxedo Nails - BellaNaija - October 2013 (2)Hi Everyone! It is a beautiful Saturday and it’s also time for another edition of BN Do It Yourself.

Today I decided to bring you something for your pretty nails. It’s most likely that you would be going out this weekend, so as you’re dressing up, why not dress up your nails as well.

How? Through the fabulous nail art design that was first introduced to the world on The New Girl actress Zooey Deschanel‘s fingers at the Golden Globes – Tuxedo Nails. They’re really easy, super cute and could take the attention off your dress (but that’s okay, as long as its on YOUR fingers, right?)

So let’s get into it. Here’s what you’ll need

Black Nail Polish
White Nail Polish
A Doter/ Bobby pin
A Tooth Pick/Liner

First off let’s take a look at a step by step process to achieve your tuxedo nails from NailTart.com.

1. Paint your nails white.

2. Using the toothpick or liner, draw two lines on your nails making sure the two lines go from the outer corner of your nails to the centre of the tip of the nail.

4. Taking the doter or bobby pin, dip it onto the black nail polish and make two dots in the centre of the V shape.

6. Dipping the toothpick back into the black nail polish, connect the two ends of the X on the right together and on the left together and fill it in until it turns into a bow.

    Women and vanity. What man notices d designs on a woman’s
    nails relative to d character of the lady? I tell all women you
    would all go further and will be noticed by men with the natural
    looking French Tips look. Not all dis kindergarten efforts at
    creativity. .

    Sorry but I find this a little tacky. But I guess not every
    trend is for everyone.
