Manic(ure) Monday: Striped Nails


Today I have a little tutorial on how to get fun striped nails.

1. Choose a base colour (best use a nail polish that dries well). I used Essie "Blanc".
2. Apply some sticky tape (I used special French Manicure tape because it's semicircular and I liked the effect it produced). If the tape is really sticky you should first apply it to your skin 1 or 2 times so later it will come off better.


3. Choose two colours and paint the tip of your nails with the one and the bottom of your nails with the other. I used Essie "Tart Deco" and a violet shade from Basic.


4. Take off the tape (right after painting your nails) really slowly et voilà!
