Once the nail polish has dried, it is time to use the tape, which should be opaque to prevent paint jump. Cut strips of tape that are thin and glue on the nail based on the design you like.
Now choose another colour enamel and paint the entire nail over the tape and you will achieve a design of two very original colours. It is also possible to design with three colours, painting each side in a different tone, as we see in the second picture. With a little imagination, you can create very nice colour combinations. Very important! Remove the tape before the nail polish dries otherwise it will peel the polish off your perfectly manicured nails.
Finally, when it has dried, apply a light coat of clear finishing coat nail polish to set the design and you are ready! You'll have your nails decorated and well kept. With strips of adhesive tape it is very easy to try nails different colours, do not hesitate to try it and see how they are.
