DIY Dorm: Scotch Taped Nails

I did a little experimenting with some scotch tape last night and ended up with this really cool manicure, so I’m going to teach you how to do this too. It’s super easy and turns out great!

The supplies you need are: two nail polish colors of your choice, top coat, a pair of scissors, and some scotch tape


Step one: Paint your nail the base color (I chose gold) and let it dry

Step two: Take a little square piece of tape and cut a triangle shape out of it

Step three: Once your nail is completely dry, place the tape at the top of the nail so that the triangle cut out is at the tip (firmly press the tape down so no nail polish can leak under it)

Step four: Take your second color and paint in the triangle



Step five: Let it dry all the way and carefully peel off the tape, finish off with your top coat and now you have super cute nails!

I only did one triangle on each hand and painted the rest black, but you could easily do this on all of your fingers!

Do you have any cool DIY manicures? Show us yours, or try this one out and let us know if you like it!
