NOTD and Tutorial!!!!

Hello lovely readers! So sorry about the lack of posts lately, been so busy! But I'm back and hopefully will be able to continue blogging on a more regular basis! So onto today's blog post!

Hope you like :)

To do this look on your own nails you will need :

  • Two different colour polishes.
  • A Base Coat
  • A Top Coat
  • Tweezers
  • Sellotape and a pair of scissors   
  • Striping Tape       
 Step one:

Apply your base coat, I used Opi Nail Envy, while it also strengthens your nails it makes for an excellent base coat.

Step Two

Section off the top half of your nails with a piece of sellotape, use your tweezers to push the tape down at the edges of the nail to stop the polish bleeding underneath. Apply the first polish to the section of nail not covered with tape, do this for each nail, peel off while still wet.

Step Three

Section off the bottom half of your nail( the one you just painted) for this part of the tutorial ensure your polish is completely dry as the tape will pull off your polish if it is still wet.
Paint the top half of your nail with your chosen second colour. Peel off the tape while it is still wet.

 Step Four

Ensure your polish is completely dry before attempting this section, cut your pieces of striping tape, you can use any colour you wish for this design, I used gold, apply your tape carefully with your tweezers to each nail,  trim off the excess with your scissors. Make sure the tape is stuck properly to each nail, and then seal with your topcoat! And voila!!!!! Fantastic nails!!!!!!

The colours I used for this nail design are :

Opi Dutch Ya' Just Love OPI!
Barry M Jelly Shine in shade Prickly Pear!
Rimmel Pro Top Coat Clearly Clear!

If you try this I'd love to see your results!

Thank you lovely ladies for reading!!!
