  • Products Used:

    • NailEnvy by OPI for the base coat
    • Straight NailVinyls or striping tape from NailVinyls
    SLIDE 1 OF 6
  • Step One:

    Put down your base coat and allow it to dry. Then paint your nails with two coats of white for opacity. Let this dry and then apply your fast drying topcoat. Remember to let your nails dry thoroughly.

    SLIDE 2 OF 6
  • Step Two:

    Once your topcoat is completely dry, place the striping tape or the nailvinyls in thick stripes over your nail. Try to tape off even lines, if you can. Use more than one nailvinyl to create the desired width or to help you get a straight line. Remember, if your nails haven't dried properly, the nailvinyls will pull off the wet polish when you remove them, so make sure they are thoroughly dried.

    SLIDE 3 OF 6
  • Step Three:

    Now paint over the free white spaces with black nail polish. Carefully remove the nailvinyls immediately after. Your nail should now have nice thick stripes. Follow with another layer of your fast drying topcoat and wait until it is fully dried.

    SLIDE 4 OF 6
  • Step Four:

    When you are sure the topcoat is rock solid, place the star nailvinyls over your nail however you like.

    SLIDE 5 OF 6
  • Step Five:

    Now use your pink polish to fill in the stars. When you are done, very carefully remove the nailvinyls. You may need to do some correction with black, white or pink polish around your stars. When you are satisfied, apply another layer of topcoat and let dry. Once it's dry you'll be ready for a rocking night out!
