corset top

    Difficulty: easy / 3-4 out of 10 (It's easier than it looks and sounds.)
You will need:
- dark color like burgundy
- light color like pale pink
- toothpick or very small brush 
Paint your nail in a dark color, only leaving a triangle shape in the center of the top. The sides of the triangle should curve slightly inward. When this dries, paint a line from the upper part of one side of the nail in a curved line up to the tip of the triangle and down to the other side in a lighter form of the darker color. For instance you could use pink if you used burgundy as the base, or light blue of you used navy blue. After this, paint about four lines up to this line from the bottom in the same color, but don't put one up the center. Next, use a toothpick to put three small dots in a line up the center, not quite reaching the tip of the triangle. Finally, paint a line in the same color along the two sides of the empty triangle. Finish it off with a top coat.
