Fun & Bright Tape Mani

A bit retro, a bit sparkly and very cool.

I thought of this design while trying to fall asleep one night.

I love working with striping tape, you can do an amazing amount of different designs with it. You can do just one simple stripe or you can create a beautiful intricate pattern.

I used all @ulta3 polishes and Glisten & Glow Base & Topcoat.

Here’s a tutorial šŸ™‚

– Apply base coat. I used G&G Stuck On Blu!

– Apply 3 coats of chosen colour.

– PaintĀ a thick strip of glitter across your nail.

– Apply fast drying topcoat. I use HK Girl top coat.

– Once dry use two piecesĀ of striping tape to outline your glitter. Then another few pieces for your coloured lines.

– Apply black polish on both sides of your glitter strips, covering the small tape lines.

– Immediately remove your striping tape. Make sure you do this when the polish is still wet!

– Clean up any excess polish on or around the cuticle area.

– Wait for the black to dry a bit beforeĀ applying topcoat to avoid smudging.
