    BEAUTY KIT
     
    To get picture-perfect results, you'll want a metallic shade, like Maybelline New York Color Show Nail Lacquer in Bold Gold ($4 at drugstores), and a pastel shade, like Essie polish in Mint Candy Apple ($8 at essie.com).

    THE RIGHT TOOLS
     
    Got your polish? Fab! Now you'll need painter's tape (get it at the hardware store) and a small pair of scissors.

    STEP 1
     
    Apply metallic polish to all 10 digits and wait five minutes (or until dry).

    STEP 2
     
    Cut tape into narrow triangles and apply them in a zigzag pattern.

    STEP 3
     
    Paint over the entire nail and triangles with the pastel shade.
  • slide6.jpg
    STEP 4
     
    Peel off the tape after waiting just 10 seconds so polish is still wet.
  • slide7.jpg
    STEP 5
     
    Do just one nail for an unexpected accent or all 10 for a major mani.
  • slide8.jpg
    STEP 6
     
    Swipe each dry nail with a layer of topcoat to seal in your masterpiece.

    Don't let the sweets fool ya--our model's mani is totally fierce.
