Valentine’s Day Striped Nails

8 Feb

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I have posted a DIY nail post. Because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner I wanted to share with you a cute, easy and fun Valentine’s Day Striped Nail tutorial. I used two nail colors that I had on hand but the color possibilities are endless! Get creative!

For this tutorial you will need two nail colors of your choice, tweezers and nail tape. The main nail color that I chose was Status Symbol by Essie.

Status Symbol Nail Color

For the stripes I chose No Place Like Chrome by Essie.

No Place Like Chrome

I started by painting all my nails with Status Symbol, except my ring finger. On my ring finger I used No Place Like Chrome. Once it was dry I cut small pieces of nail tape and applied them to the nail with tweezers. Tip: Press the center of the nail tape to the center of the nail and then push the nail tape to the sides.

Next apply two or three coats of Status Symbol, after your last coat wait about 2 minutes and with tweezers slowly and carefully remove each piece of tape. And last but not least apply your top clear coat.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! I want to wish everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope that special person in your life brings you lots of roses and chocolates!
