Black & Purple X Nails
The other night I did my nails as my way of decompressing and relaxing for the night. I decided I wanted to play around with my nail striping tape some more. Originally, I wanted to do a double v with the tape, but I was getting frustrated with trying to place the tape in the v-shape and getting the tape angled correctly. So I gave up on that (for now, I’ll try again another time!) and just made x’s with the tape I had already cut out for the v’s. I painted my thumbs and pinkies black using “Knockout” from Revlon. I painted my pointer, middle, and ring fingers purple with Essie’s “All Access Pass”. Once my nails were dry I put the striping tape on and painted over the purple with the black polish. When that was dry, I peeled off the tape and finished it off with a top coat.
As I was painting my nails I started to worry that the purple would be too dark and it wouldn’t pop against the black, but I really like the way this turned out! I figure this is the last time I can wear black polish before I start opting for brighter colors for spring and summer. I’ll try the double v nail art another time when I have more time and patience!
Love your manicure. I suppose we could do it with whatever color and it would look as amazing as yours. I don’t think I could do it to myself lol my hands shake and I’m also clumsy
You can do it! It just takes practice. I’ve been improving but still not that great lol
It looks pretty good to me 🙂
