482 shares on Google can’t be wrong—people love this manicure. As most of you can tell, it’s a pretty simple design with my tips for striping tape. The tutorial is below the photo. Have fun! ~Ana
PS: Giving proper credit to Karianne was quite a detective mission. This manicure is extremely popular all over Pinterest and photo hosting sites, but with no watermark. I am so pleased to find the rightful designer and properly watermark her photo on her behalf. If you would like to save/pin her photo without my frame, please go directly to her website and save/pin the photo from there, so it remains linked to the original artist.TIP: It looks like Karianne actually topcoated first, then applied the tape. This will keep the shine of the tape better, but will not last more than a day or two of you getting dressed, using the restroom, doing dishes, etc. So it’s a trade off. If sealed, this design will wear much better than if you use the tape diagonally across your nail and finishing at the nail tip. Why? Simple wear and tear. The tape will start to peel back from the tips. If it does, just trim it and reseal with another coat of topcoat. Most people won’t notice that the tape doesn’t quite go to the end of your nails. Remember, this design will work with any nail color. Will you be trying this design?
