Artsy Wednesday - Christmas

               NAIL POLISH INFO 
Polish Used:
China Glaze - Ruby Pumps
Ulta3 - Lily White

Tools Needed:

Start by applying the red polish, I used China Glaze - Ruby Pumps. You need to let the base dry completely before moving onto the next step. I used a coat of Seche Vite to speed up the drying time.

Once the base is dry, cut thin even strips of tape and apply them diagonally on each nail leaving an even gap between each strip. Press the tape down at the edges to stop the polish from getting underneath the tape. Once the tape is on your nails apply the white polish over the top. You can either peel the tape off straight away or wait for the white polish to dry. I prefer to remove the tape straight away for a crisper line. Make sure you peel the tape of carefully for either method.

Let the white polish dry a bit before adding top coat so you don't smudge the lines.
