When you’re getting ready to paint your nails, I doubt you’re used to adding some Scotch tape to your vanity. But, for a magnificent, half-gloss, half-matte look, that’s just what you need. And this tutorial walks you through every step with detailed instructions and vivid photos. From how to prepare your small tape strips for application to deciding the perfect time to start the next coat. This How-To says it all.
And while the instructions are great, the extra tips are especially useful:
- For the base polish, opt for a faster drying type.
- Control your multi-tasking tendencies and instead tape only one finger at a time.
- If you make a mistake you can touch up with a dab of polish and finish it off with a top coat.
- Prepare curved, nail-shaped, tape strips for easy application.
