I'm a huge fan of unique manicures. When I saw this "10 eyes manicure" on the Instagram of one of my favorite bloggers, Bri Emery, a few weeks ago, I knew I had to find a way to replicate the look at home. Read below to see what I came up with!

WHAT YOU WILL NEED: white, sky blue, and black nail polishes, a top coat, a bobby pin, french tip stickers or blue painter's tape and scissors, and a piece of scratch paper.

STEPS:

1. Begin with a clean set of polish-free nails.

2. If you aren't free-handing your half-moons, place your sticker guide above the whitest part of your nail. Be sure to leave plenty of space below the sticker for your eyeball. We don't want this part being too thin. **No sticker guides? No problem! Make your own with blue painter's tape. All you need to do is trace a half-circle on to your piece of tape, and cut it out. A standard-sized nail polish bottle with a perfect circle for a base should do the trick.

3. Begin painting your half-moons. Depending on the opacity of your nail polish, you'll want to do anywhere from 2 to 3 coats. Don't worry if the edges don't turn out to be perfect. You can always remove what you don't want with a q-tip and nail polish remover.

4. Dab a bit of the blue and black polishes on to a piece of scratch paper. Use a bobby pin as your "dotter" to create the center part of your eyeball. TIP: Use a little more polish for the iris (blue part) and a little less polish for the pupil (black part).

5. Finish the look off with some top coat. Use caution during this step, as some top coats are known to smear.
