Start with a few coats of a bright orange lacquer, like MAC's Morange hue ($16; maccosmetics.com. Allow the color to dry completely before moving on to the next step.
Once your nails have dried, place a strip of tape along the center of each nail. Paint the exposed portion at the top with a white like Deborah Lippmann's Amazing Grace ($17; deborahlippmann.com) and the exposed bottom part with a yellow lacquer. We used Butter London's Cheeky Chops ($14; butterlondon.com).
Once both colors have completely dried, carefully peel off the tape, touch up any uneven lines, then finish with a top coat.Read MoreLess
