Mani of the Week ... Swirly Tips

Another mani inspired by Pinterest ... such a crafty little site.
 Pick out 3 colors ... I went with Jessie's Girl Baby Cakes, NYC Lexington Yellow, and Metallic Blue by e.l.f.
 Paint your base color and let fully dry ... I actually waited a full 24 hours to allow the polish to set, but you don't need to wait that long.
Take color #2 and paint on an un-even swirly tip. I did 2 coats of each of these colors.
 With color #3, paint a thinner swirly tip, leaving a layer of polish #2 showing.
You can make these layers as thick or as thin as you prefer.
Add your fave top coat and you are finished!

The fun part with this mani style is the fun color combos you can use ... pastels, brights, neons, metallics ... the choices are endless! How cute would these be to rep your favorite sports teams, holidays, or seasons? I also love that you don't have to have mad skills in the perfect polish department. The swirls are not meant to be even, so you really can't go wrong!
