Admit it, you miss my nail art tutorials. HA HA HA. Kidding :)
Anyway, this is super easy!
You will need the following :
• Nail Polish (3-5 colors)
• Scotch tape although I prefer to use Washi tapes since they don’t adhere as much.
• Scissors / Cutter
Make sure to do this BEFORE painting you nails.
Cut thin strips of your tape ~ (quantity depends on how many stripes you want)
I used a striped washi tape to make my life easier *wink*
Tip: You can make some strips thinner / thicker ! (Mix thin and thick strips for a more fun look)
Pick 3-4 colors ~ Paint vertically or horizontally. You don’t have to be super neat. It’s also best if you coat it twice to make sure the colors are bold and vibrant :)
Should look like this :
PS: Before moving on to the next step, please make sure it’s completely dry. (Dry for 15~20 minutes to be safe)
Fill in the remaining nails with your preferred ‘top coat/color’.
Tip: Use solid black or white for a more vibrant contrast,
When you’re 101% sure that your polish is dry, take your washi strips and apply as such:
Make sure you stick it on well but don’t press on it too much as the polish might come off when you peel it off later.
Fill it in using your preferred ‘top coat / color’. Make sure the colors beneath it doesn’t show — at least 2 coats/swipes of your top coat.
Wait for about 5~10 seconds before peeling the tape off.
Add a clear coat to seal in the design.
You’re done! :) Super easy right?
