Please excuse our lack of posts (especially tutorials) over the holidays! It's been a crazy busy time for us & it's definitely one time of year that we really take some time to spend with family & friends. We're hoping to get back on track now & I just wanted to share an easy manicure technique today! It's quite similar to our half moon manicure but you can try more variations with this method! Here's the look we're going for:
- base coat polish
- any colour nail polish (I used OPI louvre or louvre me not)
- a contrasting colour nail polish (I used Sally Hansen Lilac)
- quick dry top coat
Start with a coat of base coat & a couple coats of your main colour.
Make sure that this coat is *completely* dry before continuing! seriously, be patient!
Grab a couple pieces of tape
Then take the two pieces and form a triangle shape at the base of your nail
and then paint a couple of thin coats onto the nail
Let it dry a bit & peel off the tape!
An alternate method is to use a single piece of tape (cut it with scissors to get a clean edge) and cover the base of the nail and paint the rest of the nail. Got it?
Do the same to the rest of your nails & finish with your quick dry top coat!
