Nail Art Tutorial:
Middle Parted Black x Gray

Middle Parted Black x Gray top

I’m still having ribbon fever from yesterday’s necklace, so I’ve decided to continue the theme on my nails. I’m using the masking tape technique again for middle parted design, and I’ll be having a tutorial on making a ribbon motif with metal balls in the next tutorial. Have a lovely girlie weekend!

What I used (from right)

Middle Parted Black x Gray polish

  • TopShop /Sketch
  • miss sporty /80
  • Kiss /02

*and you’ll need a bit of masking tape!

Instructions

1) Apply a base coat and two coats of Sketch except on your ring finger. On the ring finger, apply two coats of 80.

2) When the polish is completely dry (it should be absolutely 100% dry), place the masking tape on your nails (except on the ring finger). Make sure there are no gaps between your nails and masking tapes.

3) Apply one coat of 80.

4) When the polish is completely dry (again, 100% dry), peel off the masking tapes.

Apply thick top coat. This will smooth the uneven surface. Add rhinestones and metal balls on your thumb, middle finger and ring ringer, and you are done!

I also added a silver line on my thumb.

I love the ribbon, but maybe I shouldn’t have added so many rhinestones on my middle finger (it’s quite bling-bling…). Oh well, I’ll live. Hope you enjoyed the tutorial!
