I believe I first spotted this nail art design on We Heart It, which then led me to someone's blog. It wasn't even my initial idea to do a nail DIY, but I was bored so I decided to try it out.
Like these zig-zag nails, my last nail DIY--marble nails--also involved the use of tape. Here's what you'll need to get this look!
♥tape ♥scissors ♥paper towel ♥two contrasting nail colors
♥First paint your nails with the first nail color. I used a ginger-scented shade that I picked up from F21. Make sure you let your nails dry COMPLETELY or else you'll just have to start all over (like I did).
♥After you cut the tape, stick it on to the side of your hand and rub against it for a few minutes. This is so the tape isn't as sticky when you put it on your nails.
♥Then take your second nail color (I used a Sally Hansen insta-dry) and polish the side of your nail that is not covered by tape. The beauty of the tape is that if you polish over it then the tape will act as a barrier.
♥I used a paper towel to blot the tape after each finger so I didn't have excess on each nail.
Have you ever done a nail art DIY like this before?
