Here it is - my first DIY tutorial! It's not in video form, but I'll start doing vlogs and video tutorials very soon! Anyway, since this is my first DIY/nail art tutorial, I decided to show you something extremely simple and fun to do. I love experimenting with different designs and colors on my nails and this is such a fun and unusual way to do your nails, not to mention that it's very quick to do. You can use whichever color you like, I just decided to paint my nails this one, because it is one of my most favorite nail varnishes. Unfortunately, I've scraped the label of the bottom of the bottle, so I have no clue what this shade is called, but it is something similar to indigo blue. Let's begin!
The items you are going to need are - a pair of scissors, some adhesive tape, nail polish (the choice of color is entirely up to you), a top coat and tweezers (sadly, I forgot to add them into this photo). I always use Rimmel's Lycra Pro top coat because the brush is more than amazing and it dries really quickly.
First thing you're going to do is cut the tape into small strips (the smaller the strip the better) and glue them onto your nails. I decided to use only two strips per nail, but you can also use three... or more, I suppose.
Next thing you're supposed to do is put on the preferred color of polish onto your nails. I prefer and recommend applying two coats of nail polish, so it would last longer. Don't worry if there is some excess polish on your cuticles, you can use cotton swabs to remove it.
Once your polish is all dried up, feel free to remove the tape strips off your nails. Just make sure the polish is completely dry or it will not turn out to be right (been there, done that). Use the tweezers carefully, so you wouldn't scrub or peel the polish off.
Last, apply top coat for a shinier and smoother look. Yes, I know the polish is smudged in some places, but it's only because I've taken the strips off too soon and yes, I am this pale in real life (seriously, though, I can't get a tan). Anyhow, I hope you enjoyed this super simple tutorial and who knows, maybe it will be useful to you.
