Step By Step..... A Taped Mani

Hey everybody:) Today I have a taped mani that I think your going to love ♥  I wanted to go through my steps of what I do with tape and how I use it :) This mani really did turn out better than I hoped and I really think it might be a great way to accent a nail maybe not the whole set but defiantly one:)

Step 1:
Paint a white base coat, I used Zoya Snow White. After a minute I put on Seche Vite fast drying top coat, this for me helps with not pulling the polish up when I pull off the tape.

Step 2:
This picture shows the tape of a mani that I didn't like :(
Cut tape and place where you want it. *Remember that the tape covers the base coat, so when you pull it up white is going to be there.

Step 3:
Paint, this is the part some people hate. You have to be really careful and paint between the lines. I did my Maybelline Sunset Prisms first and then painted Milani Pool Party. As you can see in the picture I skipped a section, I just wanted this big whit strip at the bottom. And yes it is a little messy but it is worth it:)

Step 4:
Remove your tape. Be careful, I used a tweezers and pulled from one side to the other.

Step 5:
Step five is really just clean up and top coat and your done! I added a gold stripe in the middle of this mani ♥

Here are the final pictures of this taped mani:)

So what do y'all think??? I love this,  I'm so ready for warmer weather (warmer not hot!) Leave me a comment and tell me what you think:)

Happy Polishing Everybody!
