Yin and Yang


  • Black nail paint
  • White nail paint
  • Clear top coat
  • A make-up sponge


STEP 1: Apply a thick layer of black nail paint on the upper half of your nail. You don’t need to drag the nail paint all the way to the tip of your nail as it will create unnecessary layers on the final product which may cause the nail paint to chip after a few days.

2STEP 2: Let the black nail paint dry for a few minutes and paint the bottom half of your nail with white nail paint. Rest be assured in this step the paint does not have to be in a perfect line neither does it have to be painted exactly from the center of your nail as you will be smudging the lines in the next few steps.

3STEP 3: You will need a make up sponge or any other kind of sponge in this step. Take an approximate measure of the upper half of your nail and paint that much portion of the sponge with black nail paint.

4STEP 4: Accordingly take the white nail paint and apply a thick layer on the paint right next to the black nail paint on the sponge. Make sure you apply thick layers of nail paint, as the sponge will soak the nail paint in and you will need extra nail paint which will actually go on your nails.

5 6STEP 5: Now take the sponge and start dabbing it on your nails. Make sure that you dab the right side of the sponge on your nails or else the colors will overlap away from the dividing line.

7Once you see that the nail paint on the sponge is drying up and that there isn’t enough nail paint to smudge the lines, then apply more nail paint on the sponge and continue dabbing.

8The trick is to keep on dabbing the nail paint on your nails to create a proper division between the two halves of the nail. The sides of your nails will get really messy, but the paint will come off your skin after it dries up. If you are one of those people who can’t stand the dirty edges then you can use scotch tape to tape the side of your nails while you are doing this nail art.

This is the difference between Step 2 and Step 5 of the entire process.

9As you keep on dabbing you will notice that the texture of the nail will get very rough but that is okay since the clear top coat will give you a smooth texture.

10 11STEP 6: Let the nail paint dry for a good 10-15 minutes and as it is drying you can even the texture out with your finger tips as well. Once it is completey dry apply a coat of clear nail paint. Make sure your nails are dry and that you use good nail paints becuase the nail color may spread while you are applying the clear top coat.
