Hot New Nails

Get the nails everyone is talking about. It’s a new trend called the tape nail stripping technique. Kylene May from the National Institute of Medical Aesthetics gives us the tips to make your nails look amazing.

First paint a clear base coat and the nail polish colors. Be sure your nails are completely dry before adding the tape strips. Place tape strips on nails in desired pattern. Press down firmly on the tape to remove any air bubbles so the nail polish won’t seep through. Paint over the entire nail. Let it sit for a couple of seconds and carefully pull the tape strips off one by one before the nail polish is dry. Let your nail dry before adding a top coat or the polish will start to blend.
