These fierce stripes are sure to be eye catching and add pizazz to your look while the metallic and pastel colors give it a sweet and subtle affect. I got the idea from a GL magazine. Start out by cutting painter's tape into thin triangles. Set these aside for later. Then, paint your nails with a metallic color, I used Sephora by O.P.I in a gold color. Let it completely dry, about 5 minutes. When it is dry take the painter's tape triangles and lay three on one of your nails in a stripe pattern. Press them down firmly and then paint over your entire nail with a pastel color, I used Color Club Professional Nail Lacquer in Blue-Ming. Wait ten seconds and then carefully peel off the tape. Repeat this process to all of your nails. Once they are all dry finish them off with a topcoat for protection and extra shine.
