Bethany's beautiful two-toned manicure!

When Senior Editor Bethany Gumper came by our desk showing off her DIY nail art, we had to share: The dual-toned mint green and purple manicure is perfect for late spring/early summer, and looks intricate but is super-easy to do. She modified these simple instructions from Julie Kandalec, a celebrity manicurist in New York City in our May 2012 “Nail It!” feature:

  • Paint on two coats of a base color, like mint green, and let your nails dry.
  • Using an accent color, such as lilac, swipe two more coats over half of your nail.
  • Finish with a topcoat for shine and staying power.
