Manic(ure) Monday: Transparent Stripes


Inspired by a manicure I saw lately I wanted to do some nail style with white and transparent details. In fact I had planned to create a French manicure with a small additional stripe but if you have nothing but sticky tape and scissors you can't do everything that comes to your mind. That's why I decided to make some French manicure including a reverse French manicure. In order to do this you have two possibilities (depending on your facilities) which I will both explain at the end of the post. Let's first take a look at the result of today's manicure:







Now if you don't already know how to proceed here are the two possibilities:
1. If you have some very small sticky tape you can simply apply it to the middle of your nails and paint the remaining.
2. If you only own the traditional sticky tape which is too big for this you'll need to cut it in smaller pieces. However you will probably not manage to cut even pieces and so you'll have to paint your tips and nail ends in two separate steps:
The most important thing about this manicure is a generous top coat which will mend some minimal mistakes.

What do you think? Do you like the result or would you have taken another colour?

  14. I've recently been trying manicures with tape, but I'm not very good at it. I really like this french manicure and I think it would look cool with any color combination! <3
