Spring Fling NOTW - Tutorial

Okay, I don't have a lot of time to type this post up, so if it seems a bit rushed I do apologize. But as many of you know I was involved in an Easter beauty swap this year, and last Friday my package arrived!! I was partnered with a lovely girl in the UK named Stefi who is also a beauty blogger at Stefichop's Beauty Blog (for a link click *here*) and after we both have our packages we will be doing posts on all the goodies in our boxes. But she's still waiting on her package to arrive, so I'm going to have to otherwise occupy myself until the post catches up to her.
But, I was in the mood to do my nails today and Stefi got me these absolutely adorable colors from Barry M, so I say screw it, I'm using these pretty colors. They're perfect for spring. I'll just wait on the review and un-boxing post. So everything is out of order because I have the patience of a 2 year old. But onto my nail tutorial!!

Start by applying a base coat. Then after the base is dry, wrap Scotch tape around your nails to make nice lines.


Then apply a nude polish, I used ONS Nail Lacquer in Moon Rock, and wait for it to dry.


After they dry, slowly pull the tape off. Then take fresh tape and wrap it around the tip of the nail. We're moving to the middle color.


Take your second polish, I used Gelly Nail Effects GNP 11 (Dragon Fruit) by Barry M, and apply starting at the end of the nude polish and pulling towards the tape. Wait for it to dry.


Once dry, slowly peel the tape off. Then take the third color, I used Gelly Nail Effects GNP 12 (Green berry) by Barry M, and apply starting at the end of the second polish and pull to the end of the nail. Wait for it to dry.


Apply a top coat and wait for it to dry.


And you're done!!!

I hope you liked this quick little tutorial! I don't paint my nails nearly as often as I should... But this is how my nails should look all week, perfect for Easter and spring weather. And according to the weather guy, we should be having decent spring weather in the next couple of days, thank goodness. But I'm moving towards rambling and I have a lot of randomness to do today, so I'm off. Til next time!

  1. I've never done a tape mani simply because I didn't know how to and I was too lazy to search or watch a video. Thank you!! Will definitely try it out soon :)

    1. I usually don't use tape for stuff like this because I'm too lazy to go get it.. But it does make it a bit easier to get those crisp lines, you just have to make sure that you smooth the tape down over the nail and make sure your polish is dry before peeling the tape off.
      Good luck with the tape! :D

    1. It really is easy if you make sure to wait for each color to fully dry before moving on to the next step. Though it would probably be easier to have a friend help paint the hand you generally write/paint with. So glad you like the tutorial, and I would LOVE to see you do something similar. :D
