Day 209) Rainbow striping tape mani

For today a striping tape nail art.
-White nail polish
-Striping tape
-Rainbow colors nail polish
Step 1:
Start with a basecoat and let it dry.
Apply the white nail polish; make sure to have good coverage.
Finish it with a topcoat and let it dry.
Step 2:
Use the striping horizontal and vertical to make little squares (if anyone can tell me what this kind of pattern is called in English, I would be very pleased).
Apply some regular tape around the cuticles: This way you can secure the striping tapeand you'll have less mess in the next step.
Step 3:
Use the sponge and your rainbow colors to sponge the colors on your taped nail.
Diagonal sponging gives a nice effect.
Step 4:
Remove the tape and striping tape.
Finish the nail art with a topcoat and make sure your cuticles are clean.


  1. Oooh, I really like this! Did you find striping tape that thin or did you cut it yourself?

    1. Thank you. Yes, the striping tape is that thin

  2. I think the pattern made with the striping tape would be called a "grid" Amazing nails and awesome blog! Thanks for showing how you did this.
