Today is a super fun tape manicure tutorial. It’s really easy but looks super fancy. Plus, it works great with gel polish and regular nail polish. Score! My name is Kirstylee and I blog over at What The Gel Nails. I write about gel polish and I have lots of nail art ideas, pictures of colors, beauty recipes, and gel polish tips and tricks.
How to Give Yourself an Easy Tape Manicure
Step 2: If you are using gel polish, wipe off the tacky layer so the tape will stick to the fingernail without lifting. If you are using regular nail polish, let your polish dry completely.
Step 3: Cut small squares of tape and stick one corner of the tape onto the bottom of the nail. Repeat for each nail. Make sure the tape is completely stuck on the nail or you will have some bleeding of the nail polish.
Step 5: Carefully remove the tape from the nail. You should get a nice, crisp line. Don’t worry if the top color is elevated. The top coat will cover that up. 🙂
Step 6: Paint a top coat over the whole nail. Repeat with all nails and enjoy your finished manicure!
Tape is a great tool for nail art because you get crisp lines with little effort. Want to learn more about gel polish? See my most popular posts: How to Do Gel Nails at Home, How to Remove Gel Polish Without Acetone, Gel Polish Swatch Gallery.
