This look is super easy to achieve. I have 2 coats of Essie Mamba on. I added Zoya Bar to my tips and then lined the tips with gold striping tape.

I have shown you Essie Mamba before in this previous post: http://nailcentric.net/peachy-nude-essie-mamba-review-swatches/

Black mat and shine nails with gold accent

 

First, paint all your nails black
I chose black for the base color because it makes the best contrast between shiny and mat part of the nails. I guess you could try any color though.

Then, add a mat top coat

Then, run clear top coat through your nail tips
I added freehand French nail tip using a clear top coat. Do not worry if you do not get the perfect line, striping tape will go over your line later and conceal imperfections. You can make your shiny tips with your black base bu this way you risk getting some black onto your cuticles. Clear top coat is the safest option :)

Last, add gold striping tape
Add gold striping tape over the French tip base. Wait until your base is completely dry to avoid the risk of smudging it with the tape.

Hello nail art lovers!

Today I have for you a quick and easy nail art idea with striping tape. To get the look below simply paint your nails nude and your ring finger white. Then add three pieces of striping tape to your middle finger tip and paint it white.

Nail polishes I used are my favorite white Essie Blanc and the beautiful nude Zoya Chantal.

Hello nail art lovers!

Today I want to show you this dark nail design with neon accent. I have seen similar designs around the internet and thought I might give this idea a try.

To get the design simply pain your nails a bright neon color and wait to dry. Then add striping tape and cover with black.

My top coat smudged a bit of black on my neon lines so I am not sure I would recommend adding a top coat unless you are 100% sure it won\t ruin details.

First, paint your base colors
For this navy nail design I have several colors on. OPI Honey Ryder on my little finger; Essie Blanc on my ring finger and thumb; China Glaze Petal to the Metal on my middle finger and CND Midnight Saphire on my fore finger.

Then, add some stripes to your ring finger and thumb
Use some striping tape to mark out several parallel lines on your nails. Using each color, paint your lines depending on how you like the color combination between them. When you remove the striping tape you will have your parallel stripes.

For this nail design I did not use a top coat because it would ruin the texture effect of Honey Ryder.

Hello nail art lovers!

I have a crazy neon detailed manicure for you today. Fast and easy to make, the only fuss about it being some striping tape for the ring finger stripes.

Here is how to make it.

First, paint your nails white
I painted all my nails white because neon colors pop best on a white base.

Then, add neon details
Dots I used two neon colors for this nail design – yellow and pink. Randomly add tiny neon dots to your white nails, leaving the ring fingers. Then add some black dots to fully match the color scheme of this design.

Stripes Roughly divide your ring fingers in two halves, painting one a yellow neon shade and the other a pink neon shade. Do not worry to make ot perfect, you will be covering them black all over :)

Add 4 parallel striping tape pieces to your ring fingers and paint them black. Remove the striping tape to reveal neon stripes

Voila! You have crazy neon nail design. Add some top coat of you wish but have in mind that it will make your neon look a bit less bright.

Hello nail art lovers!

Today I have for you a textured wedding nail design, it is white and gold + easy to make using striping tape. Stay with me for some words on how I made it.

First, paint your nails white
For this manicure I painted my white base the night before I added the textured gold to this nail design. This is because you need to be 100% certain that your base is dry when you are using striping tape or you risk some smudges a flaws.

Then, randomly add some striping tape
I attached several striping tape pieces to my nails aiming to make parallel lines. I think white and gold will work great for a wedding day in various shapes so go with your imagination if you are not keen on the geometric precision parallel lines will leave you with.

Last, add a full coat of your opaque gold color
OPI Honey Ryder worked great for this wedding nail art idea. It is a one coater and gives this beautiful textured final look which makes this nail design unique. I added a single layer and immediately removed the striping tape without waiting for the formula to set. I find it is much easier to achieve a clean line when you are fast with this procedure.

To keep the textured look, do not add any top coat and simply wait for your bridal nail design to dry.
