Manicure Mondays

Ah! Favorite bad-ass manicure ever - and it's not as hard as it looks!

Basically all you have to do it paint your nails a base color, in my case, black, then wait for it to dry completely. And I mean, completely because if you don't the base color will peel off. I like to wear the base color for a day or two before doing the second step of this manicure. 

To create the stripe pattern, cut some scotch tape into thin strips with some scissors. Apply in any pattern you like. I've done horizontal stripes, vertical stripes, but this time I wanted to go all out and do a diagonal v-pattern. Make sure to press down on the tape to make sure it is secured. Paint the second color on top and pull off the tape immediately. Let dry for a minute or so, then apply topcoat and you are done!
