This manicure is pretty much perfect for any occasion — whether your look is neutral or all glitzed up! Click through to see how Allie from Brit Nails did it.

 

Neutral Shimmer Stripe Nails

Supplies needed:

  • China Glaze Fast Track
  • OPI My Private Jet
  • Top coat, preferably quick-dry
  • Make-up sponge/foundation wedge
  • Craft tweezers
  • Striping Tape
  • STEP 1

    Paint your nails using China Glaze Fast Track and apply a coat of quick-dry top coat. This will speed up the drying time, which is really helpful when you're using tape! 

    SLIDE 1 OF 6
  • STEP 2

    Cut 3 strips of striping tape long enough for your nails. Using your tweezers, place one in the middle of your nail, then one either side of that. Smooth them down to make sure there's no bumps.

    SLIDE 2 OF 6
  • STEP 3

    Paint 2 blocks of color using Fast Track and OPI My Private Jet onto your make up sponge, overlapping them slightly. Make sure the blocks of color are wide enough for your nails

    SLIDE 3 OF 6
  • STEP 4

    Sponge the colors on to your nail, over the striping tape. Use dabbing, up and down movements to blend the colors together until you're happy with it. Don't press too hard!

    SLIDE 4 OF 6
  • STEP 5

    Using your tweezers, immediately remove the striping tape. Apply a coat of top coat to help further blend the colors together. Clean up around your nail with some acetone or polish remover, and you're done!
