Nail Art Tutorial: Poppin’ Purple and Pink Stripes

Nail Art Tutorial: Poppin’ Purple and Pink Stripes

05.23.14

By James

There’s few things more eye-catching than contrast, which is what makes this glittery and midnight black mani so alluring. Nicole, the artist behind @brackett0701 shared her step-by-step process for obtaining the look. 

  • Supplies:

    SLIDE 1 OF 5
  • Step 1:

    Apply a base coat, two coats of the base color of your choice. Alternate the colors between each nail. I chose L.A. Girl Purple Effect and L.A. Girl Dazzling Pink. Apply a fast dry topcoat.

    SLIDE 2 OF 5
  • Step 2:

    Once your polish is dry, lay the striping tape onto your nails in a pattern. Keep in mind where the striping tape is placed, because that is where the glitter will peek through the black.

    SLIDE 3 OF 5
  • Step 3:

    Doing one nail at a time, apply one coat of black polish to your entire nail covering up the striping tape. I chose China Glaze Black Leather. Use tweezers to remove the striping tape while the polish is still wet to get crisp lines.

  • Step 4:

    Allow your polish to dry, then apply a fast dry topcoat.
