First Photo Tutorial

Hey guys! I’m so excited to show you my first nail tutorial. I hope you like it, because I’m in love with my new nails!

First start with a base coat and after that I chose to use a white nail polish as the base of my nail art, but you can do it with any color you like. Wait until this is completely dry and then apply tape to your nails. I made triangles on my nails, but you can do other things also. I chose three colors of nail polish that I dapped on my nails with a foundation sponge, you can find this in any drugstore. When you’ve done that you remove the tape and it already looks awesome! You just have to clean up your cuticle with nail polish remover and add a top coat to seal your new nail art design. I found my inspiration on this amazing blog:, I think she has awesome ideas!

    Lovely. I like this a lot! I am rubbish at nail art, but I think I will give this a go. Thank you for sharing this and well done on your first tutorial. xx

  2. Love this look! I dont think that Im patient enough to wait until the nail polishes are dry to pull of the tape and then it”ll probably just end up a mess!

    • You can pull off the tape when the dapped nail polish isn’t dry, that’s what I did. You just need to be sure your white nail polish is completely dry, otherwise it will come off with your tape.

  3. I love them, and this is a great tutorial, I would have never thought of it! πŸ˜€

  4. I like. I keep meaning to try the sponge on my nails…

    • Haha, thank you! You should really give it a try, there’s not much that can go wrong πŸ™‚

  5. I can never do the ombre thing with sponges, but ugh, this is too pretty to pass up!

    • Aw, thank you! You should give this a try, it’s not really the same as doing an ombre πŸ™‚

    This is so amazing! I love it! I can never get taping quite right, it never creates the smooth lines that yours has. What kind of tape did you use? Just regular clear sellotape or a different kind?

    • I used regular clear sellotape. Do you press it on your nails before you start painting them? I also removed it when my dapped nail polish was still wet. Hope this was helpful πŸ™‚

      • thetrickyniki

        I wouldn’t really say I press it on and I do remove it when the polish is still wet. Hmm… it’s worked so much better for you than me!

      • I press on the tape because otherwise the polish can find a way beneath it and then you get blurred lines.

  8. This is a brilliant idea! It looks so effective! I’m definitely going to give this a try next weekend!
