Clean off nails using the polish remover. Then rinse nails with water (don't use soap!)
Start by applying the tape to whatever thickness you wish to have your french tip to be
Can't really tell but I rounded the lining by pressing and pulling the tape down at the same time while applying
For the next step I used Sally Hansen triple strong clear polish because it dries fast and looks great!
Next add a coat of clear polish to your tip..
*Do not let the clear coat dry!
Carefully add the sparkles to the wet tip. I used a plate to catch the loose sparkles. (i got my tube of sparkles from claires)
Color of your choice :) should look something like this
Shake off loose sparkles.. Let the polish dry..then add another clear coat to the tip. Securing the sparkles in place. Let dry.
After polish dries over the sparkles... Carefully remove the tape.. Should reveal a perfectly lined sparkle tip
Finally cover the whole nail with another clear coat to finish the nail off for a clean look.
Repeat with each nail. And you're done!! =]
You may use this strategy with nails that have been polished with a base coat color. Just make sure that the base polish is completely dry so the tape doesn't take the it off.
You can use this method on your toes as well!!! It's that easy :))
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Good luck!
