Steal the Stars Summer Manicure: Vanessa Hudgens Two Tone Tips

This summer is all about the nails: from metallic, to white, to neon colors. Who knew that there could be so many trends in the nail polish world?! These trends are perfect for the women who aren't bold enough to try out certain trends like the neon trend or color blocking in their clothing. Some of these trends can be a bit intimidating especially when putting together your outfit, but nail polish is an easy way to feel bold and go a little risky without having to dive right in. It gives a little kick to a look, and who doesn't want their nails to look good?

This season is all about the two-tone nails, and I'm not talking about the ombre nail. What I'm talking about is painting your nails all one color except one nail on each hand that has a print or different color to it. Vanessa Hudgens was seen rocking her two-tone nail polish with a dark blue and one glitter nail.

This style is so easy to do yourself! Even I had to try it out!

What you'll need:


nails by poetofsorts on Polyvore.com

Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish, $16
Buy Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color, Snappy Sprinkles..., $4.59
essie nail care no chips ahead chip free top coat, $8

-Darker nail polish (a dark blue or a dark purple)
-Glitter nail polish (I used the Sally Hansen glitter nail salon effects)
-Top coat (prefer Essie No Chips Ahead Topcoat)

**If you do the Sally Hansen Salon Effects start with that first. Place those on your ring finger then you can start painting the rest of your nails. Don't forget to use the topcoat on your nails, execpt for the Sally Hansen Nail Effects.

**If your painting all your nails you can do what ever order you like. You can paint all your nails first (minus the ring finger) and go back to paint your ring fingers. Once you have everything painted go back and use a topcoat over them.


I used OPI Siberian Nights, it's a darker purple but almost looks black indoors or from far away. Since I had only two of these Sally Hansen Salon Effects strips left I decided to use them for this look.

What do you guys think? Would you try this trend?

  1. Looks cool, I've seen this on quite a few beauty blogs now and like it with a contrasting colour. You make a good point about it being almost a risk free way of experimenting for those that are not so daring with their look as they don't have to invest much into it.

  2. Interesting!

    I also like the bold graphic takes on the French manicure this season. Traditional French manicures are pretty gross, but doing an orange nail with hot pink tips? Um, yes please.


Thank you for your comments!! I look forward to reading them!
