Lie detector nails These are definitely eye-catching (don't they remind you of the squiggles on a lie detector test?), but the dark base color keeps it chic. And while it looks complicated, this design is actually pretty easy to execute. Paint a base coat (you could do a dark shade like this or a more muted one if you want less of a contrast). Then, use a small brush, like the Orly Detailer Brush, $15, to paint squiggly lines across your nail. Vary the size of the squiggles and number of lines to keep the pattern interesting. And don't worry if it doesn't look perfect, that's kind of the point.
