Two-Toned Ruffian Nails with Studs

Inject a bit of spring into your nails this week with these two-toned ruffian nails with studs. The matte look is a season favorite, and I think a combination of nude colors and pastels always works well. So while you're waiting for the snow and cold to end, give these pretty nails a try. They'll keep spring and warm weather fresh on your mind! Plus, this look is so simple to create that you can do it easily.

All you'll need to get started are a nude and two pastel polishes, a nail art brush, pastel studs, glue (optional), and shiny and matte topcoats.

Two-Toned Ruffian Nails with Studs: Steps 1-2

1. Paint your nails with a nude base color. Then, using a nail art brush and a pastel color, paint halfway across the base of your nail — without touching the cuticle. Start in the middle, and work your way outward.

2. Repeat this with your second color. Be careful — you don't want to rush and get paint all over your cuticles.

4. Add a regular topcoat. Once the first topcoat is dry, add a matte topcoat to really make the accents pop!
