Instructions of doing Nail art using Scotch tape

No hi-fi tutorial is required in doing nail art designs with Scotch tape. Simplicity is the best way to get going in this fashion fad.

  • First of all apply base coat over your nails.
  • Once the coat dries, put tape along the nail to get the design of your choice.
  • Now put a nail paint of contrasting colour to the nail part which is exposed.
  • Start removing the tape slowly while the nail paint is wet.
  • Apply top coat over it to reduce imperfections, if any.
  • The design is done.
  • See to it that there are no gaps left once you put the tape on the nails otherwise it will look messy and stupid.
  • In order to avoid the second layer of coat, use nail enamel that is able to do the job in the first application of the nail coat itself.
  • Most importantly, wait for the base coat to dry off completely before applying the Scotch Tape.

First of all, get for yourself scotch tape and a pair of scissors. Cut the scotch tape with scissors to create a lace-like edge. Now use a dotting tool to make dots on and around the curved areas of the lace. So easy it is. You just need to get started and very soon you will be master in doing nails with scotch tape.

Chevron Nails

Ah…“chevron” might sound very hi-fi but it essentially means ‘zigzag’ patterns. For that you need to paint your nails dry, cut a small piece of Scotch tape in zigzag line. Now stick the pieces on to your nail (don’t forget to leave some gap between them) and paint the exposed nail. Let the whole thing dry out, remove the tape carefully and leave a zigzag line. Using a nail art pen, draw a zigzag below and above the original. Add a top coat and allow it to dry.
