On the airbrush design, how do you 'swirl' the two colors?

I know a really cool way to make your nails have words on it.
You'll need white nail polish, newspaper, rubbing alcohol, and top coat polish.

1. Put white nail polish on all of your nails and let dry completely.
2. Put one of your nails completely in a small cup/cap of rubbing alcohol for 30 seconds.
3. Press newspaper up against nail that was just dipped in rubbing alcohol, keep on for 30 more seconds.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until all of your fingers are finished.
5. Put top coat on top of nails to ensure that the newspaper ink stays on.

You can do this with anything that has ink on it, try printing out a picture and doing that, or you could find big letters to spell out something on each finger!

all you need for this design is a skin tone nail polish (tan, light brown, peach), white nail polish, tape and a clear base coat and top coat.

STEP ONE: Apply the base coat and let it dry for 5-10 minutes.
STEP TWO: Apply the skin tone nail polish and let it dry for 5-10 minutes (you may need to add another layer of skin tone nail polish if it is hardly seen).
STEP THREE: This may sound funny, but apply the top coat on the nail polish, and wait for 30-60 minutes (just to make sure it is COMPLETELY dry).
STEP FOUR: Take a 2-inch strip of tape and stick it across your nail horizontally, but leave a little space where the white of your nail is.
STEP FIVE: Apply your white nail polish on the part that isn't covered by the tape.
STEP SIX: Carefully take off the tape, but take it off quick, because you don't want the nail polish drying the tape to the nail. Let it dry for 5-10 minutes.
STEP SEVEN: Add a final top coat and let it dry.
If you followed these steps correctly, it should look something like THIS.

Doesn't work.
Question: Why a 2-inch strip of tape? I did a 1-inch strip (at max) and it fit over my entire nail, with extra.
Comment: Is there some kind of trick to the tape? Seriously. I did it, and it just came out a straight line across the top of my thumb nail?! The heck?!

There is a special tape you can use for a guide for French Manicures. You can find it in the cosmetic section of Wal-Mart. It is crescent shaped. Also, there is one for "Chevron" striped nails. The first time I saw it was on a flight attendant.

That would have been nice to have been put in the guide. Thanks. Rep for helping!

PS, I did the diagonal crackle, PERFECT!!! Although!!!! Tweak the guide a bit, and you can do more. Next time I do my nails, I'll post it (it may be my toes though.... which is frightening).

Take the nailpolish brush and move it around a bit where the two colors meet.

Thank you! I'll add this soon.

As kathynew said, there is a special crescent shaped tape at Wal-Mart for french manicures. If regular tape isn't working for you, try buying some of that in the cosmetic section.
