1. Start fresh with a clean set of nails- all polish free!
2. Use a favored shade ( I used coral) and double coat the base paint.
3.Using a pair of zig-zag scissors, cut stripes of tape, and place them so that it covers all the nail excluding the bottom.
4. Using a darker favored shade, ( I used a dark grey) paint in the spaces that aren't covered by the tape- double coat.
5. Let dry (but not completely!) and CAREFULLY tear the tape stripes off ( it doesn't always come off perfect so feel free to do touch ups ) then let dry entirely and give them a layer of Top Coat to finish them off!
Hope you enjoyed my first nail DIY!
