Striping tape is an easy way to make awesome designs. I found mine on Amazon.com for super cheap. :)
The tape :)
Paint your nails whatever color(s) you want. I usually do a mixture of different colors.
I precut my tape :)
Make sure your nails are completely dry before going onto the next step.
Put the tape on your nail, making sure that it's completely flat.
Paint over the tape.
Pull off then wait for the top layer to dry. Then put on a top coat. :)
Another example. :)
