Here's what you need-
-2 or 3 different colors of polish that all blend well together
Step 1: File nails to the desired shape that you like to keep them. Then apply one coat of what will be your base coat. I would choose the lightest color out of your 2-3 chosen colors. I used a white with sparkle in it.
Step 2: cut strips of the scotch tape as thick or as thin as you like (1 for each finger) and apply them to your nail in the design you desire. I did diagonal placements on my nails with a medium thickness of tape. Be sure to leave yourself a tab so that you have a easy way to pull the tape off later.
Step 3: Once the tape is applied to each finger and pushed down firmly you can begin to polish. I chose a red glitter and a black glitter polish so that I could have 3 total colors once finished. I then did 1 coat of red on the bottom of each nail followed by a black coat then immediately applied coat 2 of the red and then coat 2 of the black. As soon as I had both coats applied I immediately removed the tape strips before the polish dried. I pulled the tape towards me and did so very slowly.
