Nail Art Tutorial: Stripey

3 Nov

This tutorial is so simple that anyone (even without nail art skill) can make it. Maybe some of you have known it, but I want to share it anyway ;).

Here’s the result:

Pretty? Want to make it too? These are all you need:

  • adhesive tape
  • scissors
  • 1 nail polish for base coat
  • 1 nail polish for the stripes
  • top coat

All nail polishes I used was from Etude House:

  • Etude House LUCIDarling Fantastic Nails #01 for the stripes
  • Etude House Top Coat #05
  • Etude House LUCIDarling Fantastic Nails #03 for base coat

I love Etude House nail polishes. Durability is good (especially the ones with glitter), not too expensive, and they always come in cute packaging :D. Well, jump to the tutorial!

1. Cut the adhesive tape about 2-3 cm in length.

Ew. My hand looks like granny's hand. It's genetic. Well, move on.

2. Cut the tape into 3 parts. The smaller you make these parts, the smaller the gap between each stripes. Make these parts about 10 pieces.

3. Leave the tapes. Apply base coat to your nails. I applied it twice.

4. Let the base coat perfectly dried. Then put the tapes on your nails. Make sure there’s no slit at the brown area (see picture), so the second nail polish don’t leak below the adhesive tape.

5. Put all the tapes on your nails. Put the rest of of the tape onto your finger.

It's zombie mode πŸ˜€

6. Apply the second nail polish at the part of the nail which isn’t covered by adhesive tape. It’s OK if you apply it a bit excessively until it layer the tape, as long as it don’t go below the tape.

7. Once again, wait until it perfectly dried. Then, detach all the tapes. It should look like this:

8. Apply top coat, and you’re done! πŸ™‚
