A geometric red & pink manicure just in time for Valentine’s Day Festivities! But I’m doing things a little differently with this nail art post! While I usually explain how to achieve the look with instructions they aren’t always easy to understand, so I’m sharing step-by-step photos that you can follow to recreate this look for yourself!

How to do a Tape Striped Manicure | Valentine's Day Nails | #LivingAfterMidnite

1. Start by painting your nails one color and let them completely dry.

2. With striping tape (or regular tape) create a design on your nail. Remember the part under the tape will be the part that stays the first color.

3. Paint your entire nail with 2 coats of another color. Let the first coat dry for a few seconds before applying the second coat.

4. Let dry for about 30 seconds and slow peel off the nail, one strip at a time. You can follow up with a little bit of metallic polish like I did after your nails are dry.
