This design is very simple to do. It took less than 30 minutes from start to finish. I didn’t take pics when I did my hands, so I’ll show you with my toe. The yellow looked a bit bland, so I figured I’d do the big toe to dress it up a bit.
I bought Nail Tape on Amazon.com. It should cost you no more than $2 for 10 rolls. They are tiny rolls but they last a long time. Cut them into strips before you start on your nails. This will make everything easier for you later on. I like them slightly longer so it’s easier for me to peel them off when I’m done.
You first put your base coat & let that dry. Then you put your first color (I did yellow). Let that dry completely otherwise the tape will pull off your color, which will cause a mess & you’ll get really frustrated. Been there, done that. Use the tape to create your triangle. If the point looks off, carefully peel the tape off & try again. Once you have the shape you want, apply the accent color (I used blue). Let that set for a minute, then carefully peel the tape off. Let that dry then finish everything off with a top coat. Simple & quick.
Note: I find that using a darker color for the accent works best. The yellow accent (on my index finger) started mixing w/ the blue & turned green, but I added more yellow to cover it up.
Now rock your summer nails with a hot dress! ENJOY!
