Electric tape

Use tape to get easy clean lines.  You can make many different looks with tape and this is just one of them.  You have to make sure your base polish is completely dry before you put tape over it.  The other tip is to also stick the tape on your skin first so the oils on your skin make the tape less sticky but sticky enough to stay on the nail.  Otherwise, you'll pull the polish off with the tape.

You will need:
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blue Me Away!
  • Color Club Smoke and Mirrors
  • Tape and Scissors

1.  Paint a metallic base.  I'm loving Smoke and Mirrors from Color Club.  It's a matte polish and very metalic.

2.  Cut thin strips of tape.  Arrange the tape any way you'd like.  I make an "H" shape.

3.  Paint over the whole thing with another colour and take the tape off.

That was easy!  There's lots you can do with tape.  I'll show some other tape designs soon.

Happy Victoria Day long weekend!
