File the nails at first. The good canvas will allow you to make a good picture. So, think of the nail art as a picture that has to be done right. And if you want to make a picture right, you have to prepare the canvas.
This can be done if you file the nails all equally. Then take care of the cuticles. Don’t cut them, just push them back with a wooden stick.
Then clean the nails with nail polish remover and white apple vinegar. The second product will remove the leftovers of the moisturizer and the dry skin cells, that you have just removed with the wooden stick.
Then paint the nails with a base coat. It will prevent any yellowing that can be caused by colored nail polishes.
Wait for the base coat to dry out completely and paint the nails with the base color. Apply more than one layer if you can see the nail underneath the nail polish.
Let this colorful base dry completely before you move on to the next steps.
Now stick two pieces of tape in order to create a triangle at the moon area of the nail. Paint that gap with contrasting, but matching color to the background.
Let it dry completely.
Now stick another pair of tape strips in order to create another triangle gap, right above the bottom one. Choose third, different color and fill in the empty triangle shape with it.
Wait for the decoration to dry and lock it with a thick layer of top coat.
You can create many different shapes and designs with tape strips. It is easy and the final results are amazing. So, come back soon and search for even greater nail decorations with tape strips.
