Gold Striping Tape For Nail Art
I have to admit , my nail art is beginning to get a little better and I am starting to get a little more adventurous with the extra accessories which are available.
For me , I have to admit I am not very good with the fiddliest of things , anything small that I can not control with my hands or a pair of tweezers are definitely a challenge for me .
Over the past two years I have tried Striping tape previously but never really gave it the patience it deserves , I put it down to being left handed and not been able to hold and cut and place the tape all at once but this time I thought I would give it another try and this time in a gold but other colours are available .
Striping tape is basically like a normal tape but for your nails so is a lot smaller and dainty in size .
It comes in various colours , I in fact have it in red, blue, purple, green, gold and silver and it costs only 49p for an amazing 20 metres of tape which lasts as you can imagine a lifetime .
The tape is sticky on one side and the foil like colour of this tape was gold , it looks like foil and also feels like foil but stronger in my opinion.
Striping Tape Available from Charliesnailart.co.uk .
Striping tape is used to make straight line designs or highlight design on your nails and because it is 1 mm thin it makes it easier to get that dainty yet bold statement.
Because this is really the first time I have used this with a little more patience , you can clearly see it looks fantastic but I do think it takes a lot more patience or even artistic streak than I have, but I am sure practice will make perfect so I shall keep practicing.
Directions to use -
The Striping tape looked flat against the wall of my nail .
If I had left the pattern on my nails painted , you would see there was no bold straight line (I could never draw straight free hand ) and using the tape helped neaten this look quickly.
Once a top coat had been applied I could not feel any lifting of the tape which deterred e from picking at them which is something I do on a regular basis when nail art has not been done properly, wasting time and effort as well as product so I was really pleased .
Like I mentioned earlier it can be a little tricky but no more than any nail art using accessories.
Have you tries striping tape or do you think it seems a little too tricky?
Maybe you are a dab hand at freestyle drawing straight lines, let me know .

Oh that's good value for money! I imagine my left hand would look great but my right maybe a bit shakier - one of those where a little practice might be in order. Love it though!

I am in awe! These look amazing, but I absolutely know that I would simply not have the patience (nor do I have the nails :)

I've never tried this before, but I think it looks really fab. Love the blue x

I find nail art so gorgeous, but have never been brave enough to try it by myself. Perhaps I could now try with your tutorial, it made it look easy! x

Wow! This is really effective! I had absolutely no idea this kind of stuff was on the market!

That gold tape is fab!! It looks so professional and makes a clear distinction between colours.

these look briliant though I am not sure I could do it myself - I am all thumbs when it comes to things like this! xx

I bought this for my daughter and wasn't entirely sure how to use it, so it's been really useful to see your ideas!
18/4/2015 03:49:54 pm
Wow, that does look fiddly, no idea how you have the patience! Looks good though :)

Ooo what a great idea. I usually have acrylic nails but this is a good alternative and cheaper too x

although i like this it would be far to fiddly for me to do on my own nails .. i may get in a friend!

I had no idea that this tape existed, how amazing! It does look very tricky to use though!
21/4/2015 03:53:12 am
Wow, they are so pretty - I cant even manage a basic nail paint without getting in a mess!

This looks amazing!! I think it would take awhile for me to get the hand of it but the results are great!!
