How To: Silver Lining Manicure

How To Silver Lining Manicure

Here's another one of my easy peasy manicure tutorials. To achieve this look, you'll need
* white, grey and black nail polish
* silver striping tape
* regular tape

1 - Paint your nails with white nail polish and wait for them to dry.

2 - Apply two pieces of tape over your nail, leaving a gap between them.

3 - Paint the gap with grey nail polish and remove the tape before the polish dries.

  3. I've ordered a couple of these tapes a while back and all I can think of is - how do they stick so well! :P

    I doubt I could bear the feeling of it coming loose haha.

    This mani looks beautiful though, needless to say really!

    1. Not really. I was asked to do a tutorial for this manicure and the name just felt right.

  6. I think perhaps hqhair have used your picture to advertise on their Facebook page. The manicure looks remarkably similar, just wanted to give you the heads up in case they didn't ask you for your permission to use it as they certainly don't credit you for your work. Thanks x

    1. No, that's not my photo. But it was the same photo I got when I was asked to do a tutorial for it. I'm not sure whose it is.

  7. I love this thanks for the tutorial! Have you tried using Seche Vite on striping tape? When I do, the tape stiffens and peels off my nail the next day.... :/
