    A Not-So-Subtle Way To Announce That You're A Wifey-To-Be

    Because two rings are better than one.

    Here are the tools you'll need:

    - Base coat

    - Light pink nail polish (we used Chanel Secret)

    - Light blue nail polish (we used Deborah Lippmann On the Beach)

    - Gold nail polish (we used Essie Good As Gold)

    - Striper brush

    - Top coat

    - Gem nail accents (we used these)

    - Dotting tool

    - Nail polish remover

    - Cotton ball

    - Nail glue

    - (optional) Pre-glued nails (we used Patricia Inspire nails)

    You can paint directly on your natural nail, or you can use pre-glued nails, which can make art much easier. Follow these instructions if you're going to use pre-glued nails.

    Step 1: After painting a clear base coat, swipe two layers of light pink polish on your nails.

    Step 2: Dip your striper brush in the gold polish. Paint a horizontal gold line across your nail about one-third of the way up from your cuticle.

    You can paint two coats of gold polish to make the gold band really opaque. Clean off your striper brush with nail polish remover and a cotton ball.

    Step 3: Dip your striper brush into the blue polish. With small strokes, write out the word "wifey" above the gold band.

    The trick is to have very little paint on your brush. You can always go back over the area with more paint. Take your time!

    Step 4: Squeeze nail glue onto the flat side of the gem. Place the gem in the center of the gold band to create an "engagement ring."

    If you're having trouble placing the gem, gently stick the end of a dotting tool to the glued side of the gem to lift and place the gem on the nail. Then, press down on the top of the gem with the dotting tool. After your nails have dried for about 20 minutes, use a top coat to seal in the nail art!

    Here's what the process looks like:
