Zig-Zag Nail Design

I love painting my nails. I also like to try new designs and ways to make my nails look pretty. I can't always go to get a manicure and nail art. I don't want to purchase a bunch of nail art tools I may not like or use.
I'm always playing with ideas on what to try next.
I've been experimenting with scotch tape lately. It is amazing what you can do just by cutting a few strips!

It does take some time as the nail polish needs to dry before applying new polish or tape ( with nail polish it is great to use TaDa Quick Dry Polish Drops - cuts down time) but it is super easy!

All you need is:

  • Base Coat
  • 2 different colors of nail polish
  • Scotch tape cut into small strips
  • Top Coat

Here are the steps:
  1. Apply Base Coat
  2. Apply Top Color
  3. Let Top Color dry, once dry, apply tape strips on an angle in a zig-zag pattern
  4. Apply Second Color
  5. Wait for 30 seconds - 1 minute
  6. Slowly peel off tape
  7. Apply Top Coat
  8. Enjoy your beautiful nails!!

    I also have a quick tutorial showing how I did this nail design.
    Please let me know of any nail design ideas I can try!!
