You would have seen this tutorial coming if you follow my Facebook page. So, check it out guys! I post a lot of my amateur photography there.
You will need:
Nail Polish Strips in your colour/pattern of choice. These weren’t my favourite pattern but they were on sale. I recommend Sally Hansen polish strips but they can be so pricey!
A Nail File
Top Coat (Optional)
First, size up a strip to the edge of your nail (and width!) to see if you need to cut it. I cut some of the larger nails so that I only had to open one half of the full package. And don’t forget to cut the line that sits closer to the cuticle in a more curved fashion to make it look more natural (because I forgot this!). Make sure that you have part of the tab left on each side, otherwise you won’t be able to follow the next step!
Simple, using the tab remove all of the layers above the nail polish strips.
When placing the tab just remember to cover the line that changes from the pink to the the lighter tip.
The nail strip I was using was super long, so I reused the end for my smallest nail. This is optional.
After applying the strip to the nail I pull the edges to the underside of the nail tip, stretching them slightly to make sure they stick. Running them under the head of a hair drier helps to make them super adhesive as well.
File the edges to remove all of the excess strip. After this I applied a top coat to keep everything smooth and keep it from chipping a little longer, but this isn’t necessary.
