So this is the new month's first post and I have some adult fun nail design for you today. Why adult? I dunno. This is how I feel about it. It's colorful but also black & White; It's fun but its also serious. So to me this is what adulthood means.
As you can see, I didn't try to make it straight lines or anything. I knew I was going to cover the connection lines anyway. So then I started placing my tape pieces. First - over the colors but as close to the white as I can, without touching it.
The next tape is parallel to this one, on the white side of the nail as close to the color without touching it. This leaves the connection line completely exposed to the black polish. I then added a couple more tapes parallel to that one, to create my black and white lines on the tip of my nails. And then I placed the final tape - a thicker piece, covering the color part right under the first tape.
And that's it! The final step is applying a good, very opaque black polish onto the nails (I used Orly Liquid Vinyl) and immediately remove all the tapes. Yeah, I know, I have to practice my taping technique some more, but I did try to keep the lines straight...
Ok, I'm ready for September now. How about you?
