This is a great way to have a little more fun with your nails while still being subtle. Do two different shades of the same color. I used two shades of red, but there are so many possibilities.
What you do:
1. Paint your nails one solid color. I used a red-orange color. Let this fully dry.
2. Use tape (removable scotch tape is great) to tape off the bottom half of your nails. Paint over the top halves of your nails. Take off the tape before the polish has had time to try to prevent peeling.
