I saw this blog and was dying to try it, but it is a little over the top for every day, so I toned it down a bit.
1.Paint every nail but one black.
2.Paint the other one dark tan and paint sparkles on top. Let dry completely.
3.Place a piece of tap diagonally across your sparkly nail so the top half of the nail is covered with tape.
4.Paint the bottom uncovered half of your nail black.
5.Let dry and remove tape.
