You’ll Need:


At Least I Pink So 

Something About Spring

Razzle Dazzler

Quick Dry Top Coat

Tape (painter’s tape works well because it is less adhesive)

Nail Art Brush

Begin with applying a coat of 3-in-1 Base Coat/Strengthener/Top Coat, wait for it to dry. Polish each nail with two coats of At Least I Pink So.

After your base shade is completely dry, cut the painter’s tape into triangles and place them across your nails. Smooth out any air bubbles to make sure your next coat of lacquer doesn’t get under the tape.

Polish two coats of Something About Spring on the exposed part of each nail.

Once your last coats are completely dry, add a thin line of Razzle Dazzler across the tip of your nail with a nail art brush.

Using your tape triangles as guides, cut a small corner off of each triangle, then reapply them your nails.

Fill in the gap with some more Razzle Dazzler to complete the edgy look.
