Today’s nail art tutorial is lightning nails created with scotch tape. It has been lightning quite a bit here and I was inspired by the weather to create this look. I first used Finger Paints Base Coat then Essie Lapis of Luxury as the base color.
I was inspired by the nailslide tutorial here. First cut the scotch tape in half to create a triangle and also cut thin strips of tape.
Make sure your nails are completely dry. Place the thin strip of tape diagonally on your nails. Place the triangle nail tape over the diagonal strip. Paint with a different color nail polish, I used LA Colors 571- Metallic Silver. Carefully pull off the tape and you have lightning cool nails! Last I used Finger Paints Top Coat to seal and protect my nails.
To create a double lightning nails wait for the nail polish to completely dry. Place the tape strips as you did before but leaving a small space. Paint your nails and carefully pull the tape off. Nail polish colors I used are: Base- China Glaze Peachy Keen, Lightning- Orly Glitz, Tip- Essie Chubby Cheeks. These fun and creative nails will get peoples attention.
