Happy Monday lovely people! So as promised on Friday, I wanted to give you a little background on my current nail situation with step-by-step how to's. Well thanks to my friend Becca, I was alerted via pinterest about this super fun idea! When I first saw it I knew I had to try it.
So the basic idea is to use craft scissors to cut fun patterns onto tape, and then tape off your nails for unique manicures. Problem is, I think I got the wrong scissors. They were not sharp enough and nearly IMPOSSIBLE to cut the tape with. It was quite the scene. But I still had fun trying and got a few compliments along the way. So here are the steps I followed in case you wanted to try:
Gather your materials (polish, scissors, tape, top coat)
Paint the base coat first and fully let them dry! Then cut the pieces of tape to tape off your nail (sorry I didn't take pics of that part). Make sure there are no bubbles - that was another problem I ran into. Then paint the other color over the bottom part of the nail and onto the tape.
Wait a little while for that coat to dry then carefully remove the tape. Paint one final top coat over them and you're good to go!
I kinda like how they look blurry cuz you can't see all the imperfections ;) Maybe try clicking on these pics to see them bigger.
I think I will need a few more trials to get it right, and possibly new scissors, but I'm excited to experiment with a few different patterns. Make sure you check out the nail blog I got this idea from (Chloe's Nails) because she has some other really fun looks.
Hope that inspires you to try something new!
