Striping Tape Nail Art

A while ago I did a post on some Makeup Rumours items. Ages ago I did a nail look using the striping tape* and the nail polish* I picked and I loved it. I meant to redo it because these pictures are really bad quality from my phone but I haven't had time.

Whilst doing this I discovered that I really need to work on my patience. I was definitely not made for slightly fiddly things but the outcome was worth it. 

I even have a matching Loom band bracelet and it matches my hair

You will need
- Striping Tape
- Light colour for the base - I used Barry M coconut
- Whatever colours you want the top to be - I used Barry M Pink Punch and Makeup Rumours Shade 41*
- Tweezers
- Nail scissors or some other small scissors
- Some patience

1. Paint on your chosen base coat or don't I'm not your boss. 
2. Whack on a coat of the lighter colour you chose. I think I actually did 2 coats
3. Wait for it to dry. I used essence quick dry spray to speed up the process
4. Cut and Place your striping tape on any pattern you want & remember which order you put them on as you'll need to take them off in the opposite order to prevent smudging.
5. Paint your chosen colour over the top
6. Use your tweezers to peel off the tape carefully.
7. Leave to dry a tad before whacking on a top coat so you don't smudge it
8. Go wave your awesome nails in everyone's faces and make them tell you how cool they are
