Below is an easy way I use to get sharp lines and shapes on my manicure without the use of striping tape.
I think the picture tutorial below is fairly self explanatory but there are a few steps I’d like to elaborate (below the pic)
I started by painting my nails Tahiti by ulta3 and let them dry completely.
Step 1: This is what I used- clear polish (to ‘glue’ the triangles), tape (that I painted in an assortment of colours they are all unnamed BYS except for the silver which is a Nicole by OPI polish), scissors (smaller ones would have been a lot easier!) and tweezers (used to place triangles).
Step 2: Ok I wasn’t expecting this but the polish actually came off the sticky tape in one piece. I was originally going to just ‘stick’ the cut outs onto my nails but instead had to end up using the clear coat as a glue of sorts. I also cut out many many different triangles from the colours.
Step 3 & 4: I coated my nails in the clear polish and placed the triangle on in random spots, then finished off with a clear coat.
and finished, this was a bit fiddly but really easy. The only thing I have to really point out is make sure the polish ‘strips’ and your nails are dry.
